Reply To: Air gunner "Newb" saga of my affliction/addiction
I wish they made a “stock class” for field target.
1) Choose an affordable 8.4 gr. pellet, in tins of however many are needed for a match
2) Choose a low cost springer, scope, side wheel and rings
3) no support gear allowed (rigid jackets, harnesses, robot-like appendages on the gun)
everyone competes on equal footing, with equipment costing under $500 total.
By the way, welcome to airgunning. Set yourself a budget, like any hobby here, it’s easy to spend too much.
nothing wrong with half dollar-sized groups at 40 yards from a budget springer, IMO. Careful not to get snobby as your gear gets nicer. Remember this time; we all start somewhere.
