Trying to get used to everything - springers have funny recoil. They kick before they fire, rather than what happens with a powder-burner, where they kick during and after the shot.
I found my groups opening up quite a bit at the end of the day - hefting 10 pounds worth of springer around gets quite tiring on the arms.
Other signs of volume of my firing include my first pellet tin looking depressingly empty - maybe 20-25% left, and the huge crater the pellets have cut half way into the 1.5" thick backstop I've been using.
Still... great fun. I'm just going to need to find a cheaper supplier of lead.
Oooh, there's a website that does 10% off if you buy more than 10 tins - that might do.
"You should just convert those VHS tapes to DVD, or store them on your HDD." and "Get a VCR/DVD combo, they are cheaper than plain VCRs these days."
I wonder how that translates back...
"You should just convert those airguns to powder burners, or use a crossbow."
"Get a Airgun/firearm combo, they are cheaper than plain airguns these days."
Hmm, I think the metaphor breaks down at this point.
