Purchase a spring discharge or compressed air discharge gun. Any local sporting goods store that carries guns can help you choose.
Buy a supply of paper targets. They can be found in most sporting goods stores and many discount stores. Steel targets are also used in many competitions. You'd be surprised at how forcefully a compressed air discharge gun can knock down a steel man!
Mount the air rifle just as you would any rifle, with your head down and face against the stock. Air rifles are a great tool for working with eye-to-hand coordination.
Relax and keep your eye on the center of your target. A firm squeeze of the trigger and concentration will bring success.
Tips & Warnings
- Whether you practice in your own backyard or go to your local shooting range, you can build your skills. Do it just for fun, or get ready to compete. With an air rifle, the sky's the limit.
- Keep your paper targets to look back on over time. They can help you see and track your progress. You can even frame the best ones!
