I had two Chrony chronographs, and both were turds. The first one was free so I wasn't surprised when it wouldn't work at all. The other I purchased brand new. It opened up to wires sticking up above the top surface. That might have been an issue, but it wouldn't even pick up a projectile unless it was less than half an inch above the sensors. I'm sure you can guess how long it survived that. I clipped and repaired the wires a few times and actually hit the Chrony twice before it totally died. The company never responded to any request for help or guidance.
I replaced it with a ProChrono which works amazingly well with no issues.
I do almost all my small pest control work with my .25 Marauder PCP airgun. It easily kills small pests with body shots. After setting it to its current tune of 900-920 FPS with 25.4 grain domes (roughly 46 FPE) I once took a shot at a gopher about 68 yards away after guessing elevation. It poked its head up, and then laid down. I took the shot and thought I had missed when a geyser of dirt shot up behind him. When I walked over to check I found that the pellet had transversed almost the entire length of the body after entering through the head. The UK guys would face some serious consequences to be in possession of an airgun like that. I like the Marauder over a powder burner because it incredibly quiet without having to buy a tax stamp. My neighbors don't even know I've taken a shot unless they happen to be out on the canal bank and see me. I've taken pests at upto 94 yards with my .177 Marauder, but that was as much luck as skill and it does not make for clean kills at that range. I also hunt small game and collared dove with the .25 Marauder.
I have not hunted with a .22 powder burner since I could buy a box of Super X lead round nose for 89¢ and a box of hollow points was $1.59. I used to hunt certain types of burrowing vermin for the 50¢ bounty from the irrigation district.
Range shooting is one of the things my son and I still do together once in a while. Well, besides work on his car. He'll be 29 this year.
