Air Gunner - - Your Letters -

I’m de­cid­ing which air­gun mag­a­zine to sub­scribe to in the new year. I re­ally en­joyed Jan 2017’s edi­tion of Air Gun­ner – I es­pe­cially liked the some­what grisly but fas­ci­nat­ing ar­ti­cle on rab­bits’ heads – but I missed see­ing a spec­i­fi­ca­tions box for each ri­fle/pis­tol you re­viewed. I don’t mind the sac­ri­fice of a photo be­cause, for me, this is more im­por­tant. Is this some­thing you would con­sider in­clud­ing in the near fu­ture, es­pe­cially as the prod­uct info would be read­ily avail­able from the man­u­fac­tur­ers?

I liked how you men­tioned FAC air ri­fles. Most of us will hap­pily shoot sub 12 ft.lbs. guns, but oth­ers dream of ac­quir­ing a firearms cer­tifi­cate so that they can own an FAC one. Do we re­ally need one? This ques­tion leads me to sug­gest some­thing; have you ever run ar­ti­cles com­par­ing the per­for­mance/ac­cu­racy of FAC and non-FAC air­guns, in­clud­ing tra­jec­tory charts? If not, do you think your read­ers would like to read them? Rebecca

Hello Rebecca I wrote just such an ar­ti­cle com­par­ing a 12 ft.lbs. ri­fle with a high-power model last June, so re­peat­ing it might be a bit dull for reg­u­lar read­ers. I’ll look for a new way to com­pare them to show what the dif­fer­ence is in the real world soon. Ed.

What is the real dif­fer­ence in per­for­mance be­tween stan­dard and high power?
