They are a great gun. I don't like the trigger on them - too stiff of a pull. But that can be fixed.
My black mountain magnum is a 12 gauge. I can't get the pattern to center well on paper, so I am going to install some rifle sights on it this year. If I decided to leave the bow home, I may take it turkey hunting.
Have you tried shooting pellets out of yours? The black mountain mag was designed to shoot pyrodex pellets...I'm a Goex guy but always wondered if anyone tried the pellets.
As a Taxidermist I look at hundreds of Whitetail Bucks every year. I know that I have seen many different ways people judge the size of racks on live deer. I think for the most part they all are pretty close. I'm going to give you some measurements that I have noticed being right on in just about every deer. We have used it in the last couple years and have only been off by about 5-6 inches. We do study the deer while bowhunting so we get a little more time to look at them....
