When the misses goes out of town I set up a little 25’ range in the living room.  I like to shoot my Umarex 357 and my Crosman 357 indoors.  Pumpers on low power too!

I have an 8-yard basement range and use the QB-78 (in .22) almost daily in winter.  It's a bit loud, but it groups quite well.  ;)  I need to see just how loud it is, though. 

I also shoot the Blue Streak and a couple of 760s quite a bit.  A box filled with rags backed by a piece of plywood makes an excellent pellet trap.

Be safe,

J~

I shoot my pumpers indoors here and there, on 2-3 pumps none are loud or anything.

I have no problem shooting indoors of co, but most of my shooting is done outside and if I do shoot inside it's just rarely going to be a co2 gun.

I shoot co2 outside over summer and inside year round. I have a CR600w and QB78 on co2, occasionally put a 12oz on my 850 or 79 for plinking in summer.

Fortunate to have a 20m range in my barn, 25m on a fine day if I open the door.

Most of my shooting is indoors into a trap. I live in apartment building, so watch for people to be out, and at the same time majority of my airguns have moderators of some sort.  My 2240/1740 rifle is very quiet. Also on my pumpers, I'm only using 2-3 pumps.

What pellet/pumpgun combinations have worked for you in the 2 to 3 pump range?

My dragonfly 1 pumps the sans plumb Daisy's surprisingly well.


Wow, never noticed this, so my response is a bit late. My apologies! 
 Mostly Crosman Pellets, like CPHP in any of them, fill my needs. Sometimes Daisy.
 Whatever I find at Wally world.   And come across at a yard sale, or donated by a buddy.

I have a hate/love relationship with Co2 guns...

So currently I don't have one, though I am sure another one will come again and I'll shoot it indoors because Co2 guns are loud !

(open for suggestions on non ldc quiet ones  ;) )

That's about perfect blowgun sanctioned range 🤗

Well, it's actually 10 meters or 33' with a 5'3" bullseye height.

It's great for my C02 bb pistols.
I can crank up the AC and tunes.

Not legal to shoot outside around here, so indoors is the only choice. But they are fun to punch paper with. especially the SA M1 Carbine. Semi auto BB fun!

  Shooting 1 mag of Hornady Black Diamond BB's;

  Still need to do a test video of my new Springfield Armory Colt 1911 mil-spec.

  Swapped the grips from the SA 1911 onto my Stinger P311 cougar cave bug buster. Now that's fun!

  I just ordered a tan kaki Army-style belt on amazon this morning to match the sling on my M1 Carbine. After loosing 44lbs with diet and twice a day workout, I'm down 10 pants sizes to 42 and that's getting loose.

I shoot my 2300s in the garage, 5 meter range setup. AC for the summer and I don't disturb anyone, so she doesn't complain.

If you are shooting indoors, you don't need much power, and CO2 can be tuned down to be very quiet and use only tiny sips of CO2, giving huge shot count.... My only two CO2 powered guns are exclusively used indoors.... Both are .177 cal, one based on a 2240 pistol with a 10" barrel and red dot, and the other based on a 2250 carbine with 18" barrel, 2289-style stock and scope.... The 1740 pistol gets 85 shots per cartridge at 485-495 fps with 7.8 gr. pellets, and the 1750 carbine gets 130 shots at 500-520.... Note that at the same power, shot count per cartridge is greatly affected by barrel length....  8)

Here, only 5 months out of the year is warm enough for Co2 out doors, only 3 months is prime. June, July, Aug.
The rest of the year is indoors... 10M.

Can be very simple….if practicing the human on the end of the rifle, nearly anything can work at short range.  If trying to blow the “X” out of an official 10 meter target, need a good rifle (and a good shooter)….if just trying to stay in a ½” or 2/3” black circle, nearly any type of good air gun  can do it at short hallway (like 7 yeads or so) distances.

So  a smooth bore BB gun, a “match” co2, and a “starter match” co2.

DSCN2317 by Robert Dean, on Flickr

Don’t get me wrong, it’s just as hard to shoot that smooth-bore into larger groups (testing the person rather than the rifle)….so the practice is just as good for me as it is with the “bug hole” shooters.
