Winter blues what to do !!!
« on: February 15, 2011, 01:51:14 PM »
Tell us what you do in the winter to keep your airgun shooting from the same old thing.I can use some new ideas.What do you shoot at, how far away, do you shoot along.

Might be boring but I just do target shooting.  Practice, practice, practice and then practice some more.  Probably go through about 700 pellets a week when I shoot every night.  Thank goodness that the Crosman Premier Domed and Hollow Points shoot okay in my guns and that Wally World always has them in their local store.

I do a lot of that as well....it doesn't get boring to me...when I can put every pellet in the same hole, THEN perhaps it will lose it's appeal, but so far  that hasn't happened ;D .Stick empty 12g cartidges in a flat piece of styrofoam and shoot at them from 62 yards--nice reactive target for those that need "instant gratification". Put sticks of chalkboard chalk in that same piece of styofoam, another reactive targte...and really CHEAP fron the "Dollar Stoer"..I just enjoy shooting :-* :-* :-*

I've had my gun since the week before Xmas; so far I've been sighting in my Red Dot Sight (allong with my buddy's) and punching a lot of paper, breaking in the gun and getting a real feel for it. I'm in Northern Cali and it is raining all this week. Moan! I get in some rare indoot target practice when my SO is out shopping. Other than that I surf the web a lot, learing as much as I can about Crosman airguns and potential mods. I finally have my 1377C in its sweet spot at 33 feet, so more serious target practice is in order. Who knows, I may even enter the February target shooting contest if I get comfortable and confident enough to make a good showing this month. Don't wanna get laughed at too much, tough crowd here with lots of high-end specialized guns to go up against. Sigh!

That's a good un' alright but I seem to end up in the sand traps a lot when I try and shoot one handed.  Sigh...

     Forgot to add, since the V-Day is now over, pick up a bunch of those heart shaped candies for 50-80% off, stick them to cardboard, and watch them shatter!
