    I think they are overly optimistic as to what you can kill with it.

    Also, to load it to 3000 PSI, you'd need a SCUBA tank, and most places won't fill one umless you have a Diver's Certificate

    I managed to get a SCUBA tank filled back in the bleeding-edge days of PCP (pre-compressed pneumatic) guns, in the early 90s. Just took a little sweet talk to the sports store manager. You can also get little pumps that will pump up the required pressure. And in its favor, it's still half the cost of a halfway decent competition gun [​IMG]

    That being said, the other day I experimented with taking a .22 CB Long and clipping off the part of the lead bullet that projects beyond the case, the end result is, "P-too!!" Super Pellet! They're not gonna feed worth a darn though.

    I would love to see this in a .22 application. Would be lethal to most farm yard pests including coyotes.
