Cliff Tharp is an airgun hunting enthusiast who pursues all matter of small game with a variety of Benjamin® products, including the Discovery, Marauder and Marauder Pistol. The video above is from a recent ground squirrel hunt in California and all the shots were taken with the Marauder Pistol.
Some folks, myself included, like seeing shots where the pellet is visible during its flight to the target. There is a very practical side to being able to see pellets in flight too. It makes it very easy to make a slight correction in your hold, for the second shot, when the first one obviously missed by just a squirrel whisker.
The past month and a half, I’ve been hunting my Benjamin Marauder Pistol/Carbine. While reviewing some of the video clips from the various hunts, I noticed a pretty good number where the pellets are clearly visible in flight.
It is especially so during the slow motion replay of the clips. I have put together a compilation of many of those clips, showing the pellets zipping toward their intended targets. Little tin missiles, with SHSR, (squirrel head seeking radar).
