Training the eye
After spending some much needed time at the range last week I realized that my eye hand coordination needed some work. So I bought a 34.00 Crossman pellet rifle with a red dot scope. I dialed it in and set up a few targets in my shop and have been spending some serious time in the evenings when I feed the dogs doing some practicing.
Not only fun but I have become very steady at breathing and pulling the trigger correctly. That little gun is pretty damn accurate. I filled a box with old rags and put sticker targets on the front. Works great. Anyone else practice like this for smooth trigger pulls? It is tons of fun also.

I sure used to and still break out one of my old pellet pistols now and again.
Breathing and trigger pull in particular are issues well worth working on.

I agree 100% on the air guns, I use my pellet pistol for low light / night practice. No sence waking up the little man or the neighborhood for that matter at 10 or 11P.M. for no good reason.
It's kind of like dry fire practice with showable results.

The nice thing about my pellet pistol is that I can set up a range in my basement in the winter. Never have to leave home to practice.
I also practice in the Barn in the winter when the rats come out looking for food. Moving targets and practice drawing from a holster.

I need to get another one, mine was handed down to my one of my grandsons after he was taught and tested numerous times about safety. Of course his parents approve and retain custody of the airsoft unless his father or I are present.
