Every now and then, when I’m not testing guns, I record videos while shooting. These videos should simply entertain you and make you want to enjoy our common hobby. I try to give you ideas which targets you can shoot in the various disciplines. Of course it’s not always about competitive shooting. Mostly it’s just about having fun shooting.
Today I shoot at everything that is fun. From empty shotgun shells to metal pendulum targets. The great thing about those targets is that you get a feedback whenever you hit something. The shotgun shells sometimes fly several meters away and make a loud noise.
I have to admit that it is almost too easy to shoot the targets with this setup at 18m. Ok, I missed once, but I think next time I’ll put the targets 5-10 yards further away.
It’s extremely fun to shoot with HW50 S. The handling is great, and the rifle is also pretty light for long shooting sessions.
Well, I really had fun today.
There were times when I was so skilled with my HW30 that I could offhand hit a match at 32 yards (30 meters). However, that was at a time when I only had this air rifle and a lot of time. Unfortunately, those days are over. I’m not necessarily a bad shooter now, but I’m still a long way from my best form back then.
Today I will show you one of my favorite rifles again.
In my review of Diana 54 AirKing Pro, I have already given this rifle a lot of praise. I showed you the air rifle in more detail and did a shooting test at 10.9 yards (10 meters). As expected, the result was pretty good. When I achieved the excellent shooting result, it was immediately clear to me that I had to test the rifle at longer distances.
After I adjusted the air rifle to the new conditions like the wind, I was ready. I was excited to see the shot grouping at 27 yards (25 m). The conditions weren’t the best. I don’t just mean the wind, but also the table I use for shooting. The great thing is that it’s light and portable. The downside that comes with it is that it obviously doesn’t provide a 100% stable base for my rifle. Anyway, we don’t have laboratory conditions, but I still tried to make the best of it.
I filmed the review of Weihrauch HW 44 many weeks ago and took a closer look at it. The post and video were very well received by readers and viewers. I promised back then that if you were interested, I would make a second video. Today is the day!
Ok, I admit the setup is more than unusual! My point today was not to recreate realistic 10-meter precision shooting, since I’m not really good in that. I wanted to get the maximum precision out of the pistol with the equipment I had available.
Crosman 1322 makes the heart of every plinker beat faster. There are many arguments in favor of the inexpensive pistol. That’s what I’m trying to show you today.
I really enjoyed going to the shooting range today. Normally, when I go to the range, my car is packed with shooting equipment. Shooting table, shooting rests, compressed air tank, pellets, safety glasses, various targets, and a lot of other equipment. Crosman 1322, however, is absolutely undemanding. I only packed the pistol, pellets, and a few targets. It doesn’t take much more to have some fun plinking.
