Hey Guys! This is part 2 of my Review and Testing of the Nova Freedom PCP Rifle. This gun has a built in PCP pump. Find out how many pumps it takes to fill the tank from Zero, How many shots you get in the "Green Zone" , and How many Pumps it takes to Top Off the tank. This video is complete with Chronograph testing! Fun review! Thanks for Watching! -Nate

I gave you a chance on this one. So what exactly was your 5 shot, or 10 shot group size at 75 yards? The video would have been more useful if you had eliminated the "sucker" shots, and concentrated more on actual accuracy testing at a measured 75 yards, with real group sizes.

Doug, My next and final Freedom video will be pure paper punching @ 75 yards and possibly 100 yard groups....that's all there is left to do. ..and I smoked some Rats with the Freedom last night but I'm not sure if I going to show that. Thanks -Nate

Nate,

Thanks for your efforts.  I appreciated the time and expence involved just to get to your range.  This one was better.  My suggestion for you is to be precise.  If you say you are going to do 10 pumps, do ten pumps.  Being precise and consistent in your testing methods is the way to gain respect.  It is boring work but that is how testing is done.

My new airgun book includes a LONG chapter specifically about accuracy-testing claims, protocols and results. Titled 'This Little Baby’s a Reeeal Tack-Driver!', here are the opening paragraphs-

"When you hear such BS from the flappin’ jaws of some ‘salesman’ using such a sales approach, you should- 1) always consider the source, 2) usually be skeptical, 3) often discount what you’re hearing, 4) sometimes disbelieve the statement entirely, and 5) occasionally… just walk away! Matter of fact, even when not used as a sales technique but simply conversation, the same advice might sometimes still apply. For I’ve found most individuals prone to such a statement usually don’t know sh** from Shinola, much less a tack-driver from a tack-hammer. Such bullsh***ers seldom have shooting skills or knowledge enough to be selling anything shooting related to anyone who might  have persevered this long in this book. I’ve also found individuals prone to such BS prone to statements like, “Well she’s on paper, that ought’a be good enough for deer huntin.” and, “No bullsh**, I’ve seen Bigfoot!” Are you a-hearin’ what I’m a-sayin’?

For decades I’ve quantified my guns’ accuracy capabilities with hard specifics including the distance at which the groups were shot, the number of shots per group, the number of consecutive groups fired, and the average size of multiple groups as calculated from center-to-center measurements in hundredths of an inch. In other words, I prefer to discuss accuracy in specific terms, rather than purposely vague and ambiguous terms subject to loose interpretation and rife with wiggle-room (by design)."

Apparently my precise accuracy quantifications have spoiled at least a few folks. I have to disagree that it's boring work however, and that that's how it's done (because very few actually do it so scientifically). However it is comforting to know I'm not the only serious airgunner that discounts vague and ambiguous accuracy claims as exactly what they are. 

By the way, for any airgunners actually interested in hard specifics about air pistol accuracy, in an entertaining reading format (we old-timers call them 'books'), and an iron-clad guarantee of same, here's the link to a bargain seldom encountered in today's world of BS, bluster, sleight-of-hand, smoke and mirrors.-

Pistolero,

I was thinking "boring" to a young guy that get's to excited to count how many pumps he has made.

And I do realize my idea of fun may not agree with that of sane folks', David. You've known me long enough to simply consider the source, Bud.

I am on the spot now, so in my next video I'm going to do so good that even Steve from AEAC would be impressed. I  don't know if I can edit the picture-in-picture in, but I'm definitely going to stick to chronographing, and all the hard facts and statistics. If I did not have to drive so far to shoot, I could make a much better videos. Right now I'm just trying to get them out. Hopefully I will be moving soon. City life is not for me....
