Tips for Getting More accuracy – Part 2

Now that I’ve got my new airgun and I’ve followed the manufacturer’s suggestion for a reasonable break in period, it’s time to see what it can really do. Before I start cramming things down the bore in the way of cleaning products, I need to get a baseline for its performance. I’ll shoot the RWS Hobby …

Tips for Getting More accuracy – Part 1

I did a short “head count” of the various airguns that I have, either hanging on the wall or on a shelf, here in the shop. The number hit over 80 pieces. That’s a lot of airguns for my little studio / office. One thing that I’ve learned over the years of reviewing airguns is how to get the most out …

What is accuracy? Part 2

In the last article I outlined 4 classes of accuracy: Combat Accuracy, Plinking Accuracy, Hunting Accuracy, and Target Accuracy. In part 2, I’ll add some meat to the bones and see if I can finish up this series. Combat Accuracy… Combat Accuracy is a vague term generally used to make someone feel …

Typical Mil-Dot Airgun Scope Reticle

What is accuracy? Part 1

I want to take some time to talk about getting the most accuracy out of your airgun. Regardless of what airgun, pellet gun, airsoft gun, or BB gun you may have (or want to acquire), there are usually things that you can do to get “more.” But, before I start a new series on a topic as broad as “accuracy,” …

Why do you always use a scope and shoot from a rest?

I have to say that I really debated whether or not to respond to this next Email Bag question. But, it comes up often enough that I think it requires a response. So here’s the comment, as it wasn’t really a question but more of an accusation: “Rick can only shoot with scopes from a rest. His reviews …

BSA GRT Lighting XL SE .22 - 10 yards shot from standing position with field hunting rest.

BSA GRT Lightning XL SE – Part 3

The weather let up for a few moments this morning; and I was able to get out and shoot some 20 yard shot cards with the BSA GRT Lighting XL SE .22 caliber. As I wrap up this series, I’m preparing a new set of articles on getting the most accuracy out of your airguns. This rifle has been a good example …

Beeman Dual Cal .22 Cal accuracy tests

Now that the .22 cal barrel is installed and the scope is basically on target, it’s time to find the right pellets. My previous tests during the scope sighting pretty much ruled out the Crosman Premier Hollow Points and the H&N Field target Trophies, so I picked out 4 pellets that I thought should …

Beeman Dual Cal - Barrel Change - Tighten down the barrel locking screw

Switching barrels in with the Beeman Dual Cal

The weather outside is hot and windy. When I say hot, I’m talking 108 to 110 degrees. If I could figure out a way to test and shoot airguns from my new swimming pool, I’d be golden. But since I can’t, I’m going to step away from Part 3 of the BSA GRT Lightning and get back to the Beeman Dual cal, this …

BSA GRT Lightning XL SE Air Rifle - Hardwood Stock

BSA GRT Lightning XL SE .22 – Part 1

Usually I start with the aesthetics and function of an airgun before getting into power and accuracy. But, since the BSA threw me a curve, I started with part 2 of the series. The point to take away from the last article is, never take things for granted. It’s easy to do. One of the critical points that …

BSA Lightning XL SE – Part 2

I’m still working through my series on the Beeman Dual Cal, but I want to take a short detour. I received a new rifle in the shop the other day. It was the long anticipated Benjamin Trail NP 2!
