Coyote season ended, so I mounted the RIX L3 on the .177 Fusion 2 yesterday afternoon and sighted it in.

I'm used to lining up on bigger targets, so I'm a little shaky, but I got the job done.

This Mus didn't know what hit it.

Cool! I Mus get into this myself. I think I have a trespasser under my chicken coop that needs this treatment.  

Would you share about how much it would cost me to get outfitted for this. Can I get into this at some entry level without breaking the bank? 
 

Thanks.  

The cheapest useable, reliable and feature rich china made 384 resolution thermal scope and monocular combo that you won't need to upgrade after purchase will run you $3,300 new, with a 5 year warranty.

Buying anything cheaper is like throwing money down the drain.

My suggestion is to buy the monocular first and then the scope.

You can PM for the details so this thread won't wander off from Mus hunting.

When it rains it pours and it only took a couple of minutes after dropping the first Mus before this unfortunate Mus came into range.

I thought I missed it, but like the Mus I shot earlier, it moved a little and then moved no more.

You know a Mus is dead when it doesn't move.

Couldn't sleep after eating Mexican food for for Mothers day dinner, so I decide to stalk some Mus.

This one took six shots to drop, but it dropped none the less.

I've been looking to upgrade my converted Co2 to PCP rifle to a more tunable and accurate PCP rifle.

I was reminded of that needed upgrade after lining up on a mus and nothing happening after pulling the trigger.

Tank was empty after three days of no use.

Tank no leak, so the rifle has an internal leak.

For the price I paid for it, topped with a thermal scope, it didn't do so bad for shooting tiny animals at distance with a .177 pellet.

Time to divert some funds and get a real PCP rifle.

#3 for the night.

Offhand at 15 yards.

I keep going out of focus because I'm shooting through a fence and needed to see if the target wasn't blocked by a fence wire.

Splat !

Yes sir, it's great practice and keeps me in tune with using the back up thermal scope + monocular that don't get much use during the regular season.

I've been mulling it over and after digging out all of the Cabela gift cards I've had lying around, I pulled the trigger on a  PCP air rifle this afternoon.

I bought a Barra 1100Z .177 cal rifle and Buck Rail moderator.

Should be a deadly combo.
