And the closer you run it the greater the risk.
Gonna regret this even more probably ,
forgetting chrono acurracy and pellet weight accuracy can a projectile of a certain weight leaving the firing device at a certain speed not be effectively measured ,
gotta admit , a while back I saw an advert for a sea fishing device where a lead weight of about 12 oz could be launched 400 yds legally , hmmm, bet the energy was over 12ftlbs , if not can I use one for hft
, sod the plate , the trees gone west
