Ok, so this past weekend while the weather was nice I took the opportunity to haul out the air rifle. I won’t be posting a picture of my target, lets just say it was pretty bad, and not because I was a good shot. Part of the problem was the puppy who was NOT happy about being stuck inside while I was out was barking at odd moments making me twitch (not yet 5 months old and he sounds like a german shepherd, can’t wait to hear him as an adult!), but my hands weren’t happy either (g*d d*$%ed weather) which was making the loading process interesting, and I’m pretty sure I was shakier than usual: something has to explain the issues I was having….. I took 5 shots with the built in fiberoptic sights, first one was less than an inch from the bullseye, not a bad start right? Yah, except every shot from there on out went further and further away…..sigh.
So I gave up on the fiberoptics and attached the scope to play around with for a bit. Please note this is NOT a high end scope by any means. It came with the air rifle and the whole kit cost us just over a $100. Took another 5 shots before I gave up reloading (gonna have to spend some time doing this when the husband’s home so he can reload for me). I’m clearly lost when it comes to scopes. Pretty sure I’m not getting the right angle to look through the thing at first of all because I keep getting the visible circle at odd angles instead of straight ahead, and the instructions that come with it on how to adjust it aren’t the most helpful.
So….anyone reading this have suggestions as to what I might be doing wrong??
