Will mount my Bushnell Legend 5-15X 40mm AO Riflescope tomorrow.  (It was formerly on my English Webley Patriot .22)

That's all.....

HEY ROBERT:

My new Air Rifle is equipped with the T0-6 trigger.

It's adjustable for length of pull, weight of letoff, local atmospheric pressure, temperature, humidity, and phases of the Moon.

I'll try it out tomorrow in my 11-yard garage range while sighting in the scope, although my intended usage is 50 to 100-yard plinking out in the boonies. (Or at Craig's 110-yard home range.)

Cheers...
HAL

HEY MARNO,

Unlike most airgunners, I'm not that interested in tight groupings.

My joy with an airgun is to wander through wilderness areas such as in my High Desert, and shoot at things, not targets, and not living things either!

I prefer shooting at a cactus leaf 50 or 100 yards away, or a beer can or a rock.  These don't require groupings, they just satisfy me to see and hear them being hit!

Plinking is my joy!

That goes for me too... Why..!!

Grouping... I couldn't hit the side of a barn from the inside of it if I tried. Mostly because of blood pressure which plagues me at moments of any type of stress. That goes for trying to control my breath, while shooting. I once was a reasonably good shot but not anymore...

Live targets... Not for me. I had my crisis medical brush with death a handful of years ago and now my time is spent mostly knowing how sweet life is, to all things, and NO, this has nothing to do with religion either,, just life itself. That does NOT mean however, that I pass judgement over people who do shoot live creatures as that would make me one big hypocrite, as I used to shoot anything that had breath in it and appeared in my airgun sights, as a youngster and even into mature adult age...

I too, just love the aspect of shooting the airgun(s), not necessarily how well it's done. It's - how do they say it? - "In the blood"...

OK MARNO...

Here are my groupings, from both of my new .22 cal. airguns.  I don't remember which group is which.

They were shot from 11 yards away in my garage, on a solid bench rest.

Hal, don't sell yourself short.  It'll hook you, and soon you'll gripe if they all ain't in 1/2" groups, at that distance...while answering the XYL!  ;)   Give it a month. It'll get ya!
