My friend got me into this mess when he took me to the shooting gallery… in his side yard! He had spinners and drop targets as well as paper bullseyes. Since then I’ve spent more on air rifles than I have on my powder burners. The most expensive single rifle is a pcp rifle. More than I spent on a 300 win mag with scope! Since then I have spent more time with my pcp’s than my regular rifles. I would load my own rounds for the utmost accuracy. For the pcp, I wash & lube pellets. My local ranges only go to 200 yards max. To get the most out of that 300 win mag I have to travel 4 hours. I can spend hours at my friends shooting gallery and have, and it’s five minutes from my house. Behind his house is a field full of ground squirrels. There is another level. Hunting or pesting requires no tags, no travel, and is so much fun for very little hassle. All the while I’m practicing good marksmanship for the few times I get to a gun range. But all I need right now is air & pellets. It’s fun like real rifle shooting minus a lot of the hassles.
