Paco is doing really well!

Post by JimT »

You remember he had stents put in last year ... and he has had some health issues off and on since then. He got a nice report from the Doctor this week and is doing well. His daughter sent me a photo this morning. He will be 84 in a couple months.

He told me he is still shooting but it's limited to air guns these days. He has them in various calibers from .17 to .30-something. It was good to talk with him and hear him so positive.

Cool. Maybe we should remind him that if recoil is the problem he can still shoot mortars.... :twisted: :mrgreen:

Glad to hear that he is doing well.
Are handguns an option?

He is limited to shooting in his backyard ... doesn't get out to the range and doesn't drive so the airguns are keeping him in shooting shape.

Paco's looking good! Those 30 cal air rifles are a hoot, or so I'm told. One of our local club members has (or had) a Hatsan in 9mm and I helped him source some pellets for it. The cool thing on the larger airgun calibers is being able to cast (or purchase) slugs which when combined with the proper tweaking of springs and valves can bring the power up to respectable levels.

Here's a link to a recent post about running a roughly 60 grain 30 caliber slug at 915 fps. That would make a really decent varmint whacker!
