Back to the range this morning.  Things are looking up.  Do have more to learn, like how to hold the gun.  Working on several different ways to hold it, but nothing feels comfortable yet.  

Group size, 2 inch groups at 50 yards.  Doesn’t seem like very good, but 20 mph winds today, just about blew the targets out of the county, and they were 30 shot groups.  I was extremely happy.  I won’t stretch out to 75 or 100 yards for a while, but will continue to work on the basics at 50 yards.

Wind gusts were enough that I could see the cross hairs shift when I’d get hit with a gust.  

Overall, really happy, 

Oh, and on the cheapskate side, my day of shooting cost a total of about $20, and that included $5 for my son to shoot with me.  He shot a 45-70, 40 rounds, shoulder hurts, and spent around $50 for ammunition.    I like airguns!
