For absolutely new entrants ;-

Post by will_achiever » Tue Jun 23, 2020 3:05 pm

Sharing my views for newbie which I learned as newbie;-

# air rifle shooting requires absolute responsible attitude towards sport . Never ever target living things or use it for harassment .

# always start with Springer, that too Indian made ,we have now very good brands,

# I found CO2 - airguns ,most useless ,good only to hold ,not for target shooting, easily get damaged, nobody repairs in India .

# Scope ;- overhyped useless accessory ,
it's expensive , it will eat up shooting time in adusting mounts , because "scope shift " with each shot and requires alignment after every 10-20 shots.

# to sharpen the skill , it's always better to shoot on paper targets in groups . Here " group" means shoot at least 5 pellets on one target from 10 meters and measure distance between two extreme shot and learn .

# Maintain Log records mentioning date- name of air rifle and make,shape , count of pellets , I find it very important to learn shooting.

# All air rifles are pellet fussy ,means with one brand of pellet, it shoot tight groups but shoots different with another brand of pellets.it can be learn only by shooting on paper targets in groups, it differ from weapon to weapon and pellet to pellet.

If you want to learn how to drive a car always start with a rickshaw and never use power steering because it is expensive

Very good to see a newbs insights.
It seems youโ€™re not having an enjoyable experience with a. โ€˜Scope?
Once mounted it should not shift AT ALL.
I suggest you get your mounting technique, scope /ring/bases compatibility and other scope related issues checked by an experienced air gun user who can help you with the โ€˜Scope, or find a good gunsmith to mount It for you.
