I love my new(to me) Gold Hunter. I've been using it for duck hunting and so far so good. Question is: How far should I expect it to send the empties flying? I am amazed in that it seems to be kicking the shells out about 15-20 feet :shock: . Is this normal, it seems like a long way to me. These are 3.5in. steel BB loads at 1330fps. No wind to effect this either. My buddy's 1187 doesn't throw empties 1/2 this far. I am afraid of hurting someone else in the blind so I always take the far right end. Is there a possible problem with the gun? Thanks for your input.
