"Shooting the wings off of gnats"; that's just cruel Ed. The poor gnat can't fly and will starve to death slowly and in pain.
Why don't you do like I do, and shoot the gnat off it's wings. It's a little harder, but the gnat doesn't suffer, and you get a pair of wings.

Yeah it works for me.

There maybe more to be got out of the gun but that is more than accurate enough for fox or muntjac at any range I'm going to attempt a shot at so I stopped there.

Evening gents

Just finished cutting parts of the front and back yards. Been to wet, and really it still is, but it was starting to get out of control.

Evening gents

Got up to about 82 today.

Trying to beat the grass back into submission. I'm not doing well right now.

I gave it up and it stinks. Compost on the other hand, grass is good.
