The Crosman is just a way cool old gun.

I'll try to get a chance to fire it up and let you know exactly how it goes. I know to 10 yards or so, it'll put a pretty good shred on an aluminum pop can. It's cylinder bore and shoots a very small payload of shot. So past that, the pattern starts getting pretty sparse. But I wouldn't want it pointed at ME when it went off.

At carpenter bee distances it would have to be just flat wicked.

A very simple and effective method of getting the bees to leave is to get a large brown paper bag and fill it with those plastic bags from the store. Crinkle the bag and form into a round bag. Hang from a string near the nest and they will leave and never come back. They think it is a wasp nest. I put them in the garage and porches and haven't had a bee for years.

You must have to keep a paper bag out of the rain. Many of the nest holes at my log home are in the eaves where there is no cover from the rain????
