Fort Lauderdale, Fla., November 28, 2011 – Gamo Outdoor USA (www.gamooutdoorusa.com), announces The Bone Collector Bull Whisper™ will be unveiled at the upcoming 2012 SHOT Show. This exclusive design is one of the components of a promotional partnership between Gamo and Michael Waddell’s Bone Collector television series, which airs on The Outdoor Channel.
The Bone Collector Bull Whisper™ available in .177 and .22 calibers, integrates the latest noise dampening technology (Bull Whisper™) with the IGT™ (Inert Gas Technology™): a pneumatic cylinder that is replacing the spring, enabling the shooter to have more terminal velocity (1300 fps with Platinum in .177) and less vibration. Both technologies combined enable this air rifle to have high velocity and noise reduction. In addition, it features a green (Bone Collector) all-weather synthetic stock with rubber inserts, a new recoil pad with up to 74% recoil absorption pad (SWA™: Shock Wave Absorber™), and a Gamo® 4x32 scope. The Bone Collector Bull Whisper™ comes with the PBA® Platinum pellets included.

Also new for 2012 are the new Bone Collector Hunting Pellets, available in both .177 and .22. The new Gamo-designed lead pellets enhance the hunting experience and feature a rounded tip and a grooved skirt making it more aerodynamic and good for hunting at long distances. The Bone Collector pellet has high ballistic coefficients: it has more terminal penetration than standard lead pellets and a stable flight trajectory due to the 7.56 gr (.177) and 15.43gr (.22) weights. MSRP is $8.95 for 150 pellets in .177 or 100 pellets in .22.
