If you had the childhood I had, you would understand why owning an air gun is essential. It goes beyond the mean kid who kills pigeons and rabbits for entertainment. I grew up on a farm, and I would spend most of my days hunting for pesky pests like squirrels, pigeons, starlings, bats, and rabbits for the meat.

What people should know about hunting is that the skills are honed over many years. Just like everything you do, the more practice you have, the better you become at it. I began hunting when I was quite young, and I had to experience both full rifles and air guns. Today I love using air guns for small game hunting. They are useful, easy to handle, and readily available.

For a gunman like me, there are a lot of quality air guns in the market today. If you are a novice hunter or want to embrace your hunting side, consider owning an air gun first. 

Why You Should Own the FX Boss Air Rifle

The FX Boss air rifle is among the first big-bore caliber rifles that comes in traditional stock. And nothing is more convenient than this gorgeous ambidextrous FX Boss air rifle stock. It is not a cheap air rifle, and you will not need to replace it anytime soon as it is hardy compared to some other air guns. It is of actual high-grade materials to ensure that you can take care of it well and pass it on years from now to the next generation of air gun hunters. 

.30 Caliber

The larger.30 caliber pellets that the Boss fires allows air gun hunters the luxury to target larger game. Never one to be content, the FX air gun manufacturers have shown their ability to listen to all of their customer’s demands, and they have delivered. The FX Boss.30 Cal big bore air rifle is among the first sporter air rifles to feature a larger Caliber. 

FX Boss Smooth Twist Barrel

And since the Boss features the FX Smooth Twist barrel, the accuracy, muzzle energy, and range is up to the challenge to deliver excellent shots consistently. The idea of having a big bore barrel that shoots.30 caliber at a suppressed sound level is modern, and it is because the barrel is both shrouded and moderated.

The FX Boss features a.30 caliber Smooth Twist barrel, FX’s patented barrel design that has proven itself time and time again to be a consistent and accurate barrel. It is also a shrouded and moderated barrel.  The consistency of an air rifle is what you will want, and in this instance, it is delivered by the internally regulated action. The action ensures the same airflow goes through the valve regardless of how much air or the lack of it is in the onboard air cylinder.

Internal Air Regulator

The FX Boss rifles deliver shot after shot consistently because of the internal air regulator. The regulator will hand out the same measured amount of air for each shot. It does not matter how much air there is left in the onboard air cylinder. When the cylinder has a full fill, you can expect to get at least 40 shots. It is because of the regulator that you will be able to get the same velocities on your first shot as you will get on your last shot.

My recommendation to all new hunters is to try using the JSB .30 caliber pellets as the Smooth Twist barrel was designed with those pellets in mind. They will be highly effective and will travel long ranges but maintain their high impact upon contact. The onboard air cylinder can be filled to a maximum 250 bar which is 3600 psi. With this air-fill, you can get approximately 40 full power shots. Also included is one removable nine-shot rotary magazine.

One thing I realized was that I was able to obtain around 870 fps resulting in 80+ ft. /lbs of muzzle energy. As an accuracy expert, it was nice to achieve an excellent long flat trajectory and the ability to have sub-1-inch groupings even at 100 yards.

Trigger Adjustments

Firing your FX Boss is my favorite part of the hunt. The reason is that it has an excellent trigger. All FX Boss air rifles are known for having incredible triggers, but the FX Boss is an exception and is a cut above the rest. It features the new generation of FX triggers that have made what was an already perfect trigger even better. 

Out of the box, the FX Boss air rifle has a trigger set at 12oz only, and this is a good thing. It means it is incredibly light and crisp, and it will be love at first pull the moment you take your first shot. But if you’re more of a firearm person and you are used to a heavy trigger typical of most hunting rifles, this is also not a problem. The trigger of the FX Boss Air gun is fully adjustable.
