These ingredients are astonishing.
Meet this interesting constituent. On a trip down south, there was a short break in the weather that let us get out after javalina. I was using the Badger .40, which is one of the best values to be found in airgunning, and specifically the most affordable of the powerful big bores. The gun is distributed through Airgun Depot.
The Badger is accurate, powerful, fairly light (compared to most other big bores) and because of the simple design it is reliable. I believe the .40 is a brilliant caliber, that is a strong performer on deer sized game, while flat shooting enough to be a solid longer range predator gun as well.
My gun is not wearing a standard stock, but a DIY thumbhole model I purchased from Richards Microfit and finished myself.
The reason I think this gun a game changer, is availability and price. Now more people can buy a rifle without waiting and without the high costs associated with the fine custom guns, and more hunters in the field the quicker game laws will evolve!
