Got home too late to shoot much, it’s that time of the year for what I do. 2 shots out the back door with my Parrus .22. Steel plate (3”x4”) at 30 meters and a tin can on a post at the same distance. Standing unsupported with JSB 15.89 gr. 5.52mm. Both hit dead center.  8)

P.S. ...open sights.

Great shooting John. And yes the Parrus' factory sights are nice.

I shot my Sears Roebuck model 126.19300 (Crosman model 1400) before work today.  This gun has two trigger adjustment screws and the trigger can be adjusted very fine.  Right now I have the trigger set up so light that the safety will not engage.  Not a problem since the 1400 safety is notoriously “unsafe” to start with.  I use the safety as a “loaded chamber” indicator.  I just flick it on when I chamber a pellet.  I certainly don’t trust it. 
Anyhoo. . .  The thing is plenty accurate with just CPHP’s and I was blasting 1/2” diameter smiley face emoji stickers off my spinners at 25 yards. 8)

It is a lot harder then it seems.
I had to shoot the re-sset three times before it would release.

I'm sure I would have had better results if I just used my finger and pushed the targets

Yep, I switched back the last of my JSBs and they’re MOS- Minute Of Squirrel at 30 meters. I’m hoping to try the B-18s in my Octane Elite this weekend. If they don’t work out, I need a new rifle that’ll like them. I really want to like these pellets.  ;D

Took both the .22 and .25 DARlings out to play and got 5 mags through the .22 and 2 out of the .25. No starlings in sight due to the winds, HOSPs were all hunkered down so I just shot steel at 75 yards with a 6" holdover.

MAN! Those .25's SMACK! when they hit steel!

Great evening...  ;D

Haven't shot an airrifle in about 2 weeks now, so I  Brought out the gamo .177 to double check zero at 30 yards. Then took aim at this bird house i setup
50 yards away that nobody ever used.

Did some small shooting in the backyard to test out some pellets.  Decided to use the FX mounts to center the scope, and then mark the elevation turret with the different ranges for the different power levels.  Will have to get some more stickers, but so far so good.
