Hi everyone
This is my first post to these forums, and I am in need of some advice. I need to thin out a flock of American Coots by about 500 head in as few sessions as possible. We have been using one pump rifles and are getting ready to buy something more efficient. I am leaning toward the FX Monsoon, but am a little wary given its newness to the market. Other guns being considered are the Rapid 12, HW100, and FX Cyclone. The appeal of the semi-auto is very strong, so I would love to hear good things about the Monsoon, but also welcome other feedback. We will be shooting birds inside 75 yds. most of the time. We are budgeting about $2,000.00 max. for gun scope and components. Bipod might be considered as well. Thanks for your help.

If you like semi auto, don't you like full auto....like the Revo Smile
i would go for something with big air tank and the Rapid or the gladiator would appeal to me and they are both semi auto.

By the way welcome, i am new here my self.

I thought the Monsoon and the Revolution were the only true Semi-autos available.

Unfortunately where i am it is not allowed to have fully auto, so i cannot speak for the revolution, but SP here has one and i am nearly sure that it can shoot as a semi auto, but it is the first fully auto airgun, and for that i am sure, as i want one, but cannot have one Evil or Very Mad

The moonsoon is just semi auto.....i am sure i am right

Let's get some clarification on some definitions. First the Rapid and Gladiators are Repeaters-they use a magazine (not single shot), manual cocking.
The Revolution and Monsoon are Semi_automatics!!(one shot per trigger pull). Auto loading !!

Not many full -automatics airguns out there. Mostly custom jobs !!

If you are shooting at those find of distances I would opt for the MK II .20 caliber as it shoots flatter, and I would get the 500cc bottle on it, tuned by AZ and you would get close to 100 shots before having to refill, that would mean only 5 fills and the job would be done Laughing Laughing

Simple as that.

Thanks for the advice. I had not considered the .20 caliber option, but will look into it.

Well, the temptation of the semi-auto was too great. I ordered a Monsoon from AZ. Keep your fingers crossed for me that this will do the job without any malfunctions.

Thanks
