I’ve always enjoyed learning new things, it’s the same with shooting an air rifle. This short video (under 2 minutes) is of yours truly shooting a target in my garden.
The distance between the shooter and the target is only around 16 meters or 17.5 yards.
My initial thoughts are, the rest is a bit makeshift and when looking through the scope the target jiggles about or seems to, I can only guess that this is my heartbeat!
The scope used is an MTC Viper Connect 3-12X24 AMD. It has a short eye relief. Due to its focal length, I don’t get too much blurring at different distances. This means I can set it up for 10 times magnification and leave it there for most distances I’m likely to shoot at.
My current thinking is to have a bash at HFT. I know I’m going to have a problem with the kneeling position because of a knee problem many years ago, but we shall see.
I’d encourage you to watch the 2-minute video, to see how this went for yours truly and perhaps give me some helpful tips by commenting below.
