Everyone should print/save this post, darn fine thoughts!
Everyone should also get to a match, BR if you must , 10m of Field Target ( ya field target fun fun) . I was taught as a child to shoot with a .22rf with no sight as those were for “fine tuning” , when you could get 5 shot groups inside a 6″ target at 100 yards you were ready to think about fine tuning your aim, EVERYTHING else came first. Scopes were just for snipers & LONG range shooting.
Another reason I say ( in so many posts for so many reasons) get to a match – while folks did indeed post excellent info here ! – is after getting into FT and meeting so many excellent shooters that were such helpful towards bothers and learning a great deal I ran into “Mick” he had a FWB 127 with hack saw marks, bondo, fill in blank, .. and a nice BSA Ultra heading the same way, “it has to fit the shooter”, gosh, all these years and I over looked hacksaw’s & bondo, . Mick was right. You never know who you’ll run into and just how much they will help. What I could find of Mick The Fuzzy Limeys site:
Though reading is good also, Harry’s posts back near 2000 (?) inspired me to try 100 yard airgun shooting of course back then I thought you would need a airgun with power but it turn’s out a 12fpe .177 is even more fun.
edit for refreshed memory. We shot 50 yards, the 100 yards I had in mind was the distance3 we “dashed” to replace targets.
