Alex,

Thank you for the tip about 'just hitting something'.  When I was initially sighting in my silent cat, I let the boys come out and take some shots.  At 25 yds. away, there was pretty much no way they were going to hit the target.  And they didn't.  Their excitement immediately vanished.."wanna take some more shots?"  "No thanks, dad."

The other day I broke out the BB gun and brought the target to about 8-10 yds and they put the scope on and were hitting it every shot.  My older boy (8) was actually getting a really nice pattern.  They both enjoyed it so much more. It was fun.

In hindsight, the tip seems obvious - but I guess if we all thought of everything all of the time we wouldn't have much info to share. :)

Thanks again.   And I'm hoping to make it out to the range this Saturday morning - family obligations permitting.

Thanks for the info Alex.
Life this year has been nuts, but I look forward to making the drive out from Madtown sometime in the next couple months!

Great. You should toss the website in your signature here. Either way, I'll be there soon!

I guess I will try reviving this thread rather that starting a new one; see what happens. I live in Madison and go visit my family in Sheboygan fairly often. It would only be a little out of my way to come visit on a Saturday and fling some lead with you folks. Hopefully you won't mind the clap... clap... clap... of my multi pump 1322. I could certainly use some advice on shooting technique.

Does anyone ever bring a chrony to the range? It would be fun to find out what kind of FPS I am getting with this thing, see if it is living up to it's potential, or if it needs some tuning.

I am busy this weekend, and next weekend is a competition, it looks like, but I will likely be going out that way the weekend after that.

it is what it is.

Guys,

Come on down and visit with us, you won't regret it. There are shooters that come from much further than Madison or Fon du Lac and on a regular basis. We have two matches this month, one this Saturday 15th and another on the 29th. And yes, we have a chrony at the range for use.....we also have an air tank with lots of adapters....not to mention lots of guys that like to share and discuss all kinds of airgun stuff...

Pretty much booked for this month with RFBR and F-class
But I'll look your dates up for Sept. & Oct.
A lot of vacation coming up and I'm jumping out of CF and into Air.
Just not the dark side yet ::)
