Making the Argument, The EDgun Leshiy is the greatest airgun of all time

That's quite the statement, so let me layout my argument as part of an interview with Ed himself on the inspiration behind the EDgun Leshiy. Here's my suggestion for North American readers... as of the date of this article, a shipment just arrived of the EDgun Leshiy... go throw it in your cart, and then return to cement a great decision you're about to make...

Full Setup Details - EDgun Leshiy, Leyla and Matador R5M with the ATN X Sight 4K Pro

I get asked for details on my EDgun setups a lot within the comments of the videos on the EDgun Leshiy YouTube Channel . I've been cheating a bit, and just pointing folks to the Leshiy build I called "Silent Overkill". I've passed that EDgun Leshiy along to a new owner for fun down south. I'm currently building out my new ...

The EDgun Leshiy Dirty 30

The Dirty 30 is a devastating backyard pest control weapon. I was certainly skeptical if even the 350mm EDgun Leshiy could produce enough power to accurately push the 44gr JSB or Polymag down range. I thought there was zero chance it could do so quietly… boy was I wrong! As I was tuning the gun I was able to achieve 800fps and get about 8 shots....

Best of EDgun Leshiy: Table for One, Backyard Bullies, and More! A Pest Control Highlight Reel

I rarely go back and watch the videos I drop on the channel, but the other day I was going back through it to see how things have evolved. If I'm being honest, so of the early stuff really makes me cringe. Oh well, we all improve as time goes along. For me I think it was more just being lazy lol. I really had no intention of starting a channel. I ...

EDgun Wick - Backyard Bullies 2

Backyard Bullies is without a doubt the most popular video on the channel. As of this date of this article, it's approaching 1 million views with over 3.5 million watch minutes. It's something like 5-8 thousand views a day! It's crazy. Naturally a follow-up video made sense. Over the winter I kept tabs on the yard looking for any bullies. I've had th...

Snowflake Squirrel Hunt with the EDgun Leshiy, Leyla, and ATN X Sight 4K Pro

The squirrels got a little break from the EDgun Leshiy and her siblings while we had some pretty nasty weather blanket us. Once that weather broke though, they came back out in bunches! In this video I continue to use the Glow in the dark tracer pellets in both the EDgun Leshiy and EDgun Leyla 2.0. I made up a fresh batch of .25 cal 25gr and 34gr JSB...

Squirrel Hunt - The Pest Control Game Nintendo will never make

For my regular viewers/readers, you've come to appreciate I have some pretty crazy dreams. Well guess what... I had another doozy! We recently got one of those new old Nintendo systems with a bunch of old school games on them. Although Duck Hunt isn't on it, a bunch of other classics are. It got me thinking about how awesome that game was, and how much ti...

Table For One MK2 - Squirrel Pest Control with the EDgun Leshiy and EDgun Leyla

The internet is a funny place. So much great content from some super talented people that just goes largely unwatched, but then some dumb thing like a cat licking a window has 100million views. In the context and scale of my own little channel, the table for one was that dumb cat licking the window. I mean listen, it doesn't fall short on me that I'm ta...

Glow in the dark pellet pest control with the EDgun Leshiy and ATN X Sight 4K Pro

At the end of the day, my number one goal is gaining the upper hand in this pest control war raging in my yard. However, I'm a technology guy, who enjoys telling a good story. For giggles I decided to document it all given the sweet camera that's in the ATN X Sight 4K Pro. By the growth in the YouTube channel, it appears the content resonates with you all ...

Pest Control: Best of 2018 Squirrel Kills with the EDgun Leshiy, Leyla, R5M and ATN X Sight 4K Pro

2018 was a monster year within my ongoing Pest Control war! However, the EDgun Leshiy and her siblings... The Veles, R5M, and Leyla were up to the challenge. ATN makes a quick release mount that holds zero perfectly... this allows me to just simply swap the ATN X Sight 4K Pro 3-14x from gun to gun as needed. It takes less than 60 seconds, inc...

Exploring the EDgun Leshiy Super Tune by Airborne Arms

As I teased awhile back on a Instagram and the EDgun Leshiy Owners Facebook group, I got my hands on a prototype of the parts needed for Phil's famous "Leshiy Super Tune" mod from Brian over at EDgun West. The gist of it is to maximize the barrel length, but keep things nice and short within the 250mm OEM setup (i.e stock EDgun Leshiy). You ca...

A Table For One - Winter Pest Control Vol 5 with the EDgun Leyla and ATN X Sight 4K Pro

I accidentally misplaced a pretty important part of the EDgun Leshiy... the hammer spring lol... so the EDgun Leyla 2.0 did all the heavy lifting in this episode of the Winter Pest Control series! Vol 5, like most of my videos have a story behind it... I hope you enjoy this one... and apologies in advance if that song gets in your head. A lonely table for ...

Winter Pest Control - Vol 4 - EDgun Leshiy, Leyla, R5M and ATN X Sight 4K Pro

In Volume 4 of the Winter Pest Control series I'm going to introduce something I'm gonna call "Pellet Vision". I was messing around with some editing, and was able to track the pellet like you were riding behind it. It was kind of crazy. Definitely something I'll use sparingly, but still cool in my opinion. Let me know what you think. In Volume...

Winter Pest Control - Vol 3: EDgun Leshiy, Leyla, R5M and ATN X Sight 4K Pro

Volume 3 came quickly on the heels of Volume 2 as we had an early season popup storm that caught everyone (humans and critters) off guard a bit. The Squirrels were out in full force scrambling for food. A few of these guys looked like they haven't missed a meal. There was even a chipmunk!! Crazy to see them in the snow... and at night! I figured it out t...

Winter Pest Control - Vol 2 - EDgun Leshiy, Leyla, R5M and ATN X Sight 4K Pro

Volume 2 of the Winter Pest Control series starts off right where we left off in Volume 1... Squirrels! The abundance of these tree rats requires some population control efforts. The winter season will mostly keep these guys up high, but on nice days they will come down for some food. The feeder is an obvious hotspot as other food sources are scarce. All...

Winter Pest Control - Vol 1 with the EDgun Leshiy, Leyla, and R5M

The winter pest control series is full gas... the past couple of days has been busy with some serious pest wacking squeezed into a tight work schedule pre Thanksgiving break! The EDgun Leshiy and all her siblings got in on the action in Vol 1. Per the usual, the ATN X Sight 4K Pro doesn't disappoint. The camera in this scope is really great. I'll call ...

EDgun Leshiy Winter Pest Control Series Introduction

The weather is has shifted, and we've had our first, second, and now third snow storms here in the midwest. While many of the critters hunker down for the winter, there are still a few who use the winter to establish a stronghold in the backyard. This winter, I'll be there to keep that in check. I'll have a new Leshiy project (details soon), but here's a sn...

The Backyard Pest Control Grand Slam with the EDgun Leshiy and R5M

If there was a pest zoo, my neighbors backyard would the thumbnail in the brochure! It's crazy how many little destructive critters there are. I was totally obvious to them until I got that first $2,000 bill to fix my patio. My attention to these little critters came with OCD level focus. I went full rambo on these things... setting up camera's and I...

Backyard Bullies! Pest Control with the EDgun Leshiy and Matador R5M

We've been having an ongoing battle between some Raccoons, Skunks, and a Giant Possum and our dog Piper. Things really came to a head the other night when my wife had to breakup a fight between a Possum and Piper. She was the Queen of the yard, but she's getting a little old and needs some help! The video documents those efforts... some backyard pest co...

Tips for Filming the Perfect Shot

I've really been enjoying the ATN X Sight 4K Pro on top of my EDgun Leshiy (R5M, and soon Leyla). I know it's been a bumpy start with the firmware, but the latest firmware is really solid. In talking with ATN, I'm crazy excited about what's coming as they look to really embrace the airgun space. Anyways, I've dialed the thing in, and decided to docume...
