Now, how do you hold this one?
« on: April 10, 2021, 11:06:13 AM »
When I haven't shot my springers for a while, I forget how they "like to be held" and I have to go through a little trial and error to find the proper hold.  This can be frustrating because some days I can't find the best hold for accuracy and I feel like I waste time, energy and pellets in shooting a good rifle inaccurately. 

So I set about to test each springer and write down the hold and which pellets the rifle shoots best and then hung the notes on the gun cabinet with a magnet.  I actually typed it up on the computer in a clear format.  More info can be added over time to round out your information on each gun. 

I find that when I choose a gun to shoot, I take a quick look at the paper, hold the gun in the right places, I have a more enjoyable time shooting that gun AND hitting the target. 
Sharing something I found to be helpful.  Enjoy shooting, cheers!
