This is probably the most important article I've written. It shows you how to hold an airgun to get the most accuracy from it. This hold works on all guns...airguns, firearms and airsoft guns. Get smaller groups when you use the artillery hold!
This is a very long, comprehensive article about PCPs (precharged pneumatics). Just about everything you need to know to get started with pneumatic guns is in one place. Read this before you buy your first PCP. I also suggest that you read a subsequent article I wrote: Helpful info for working with precharged pneumatics.
This article was not written by me. Two young men won first place in the Physics and Astronomy division at the 2008 California Science and Engineering Fair. They wrote this up, and I asked Pyramyd Air to publish their findings. These boys have done an outstanding job of showing the effects of air pressure on velocity.
This is the introduction to a special video I’ve prepared on scope mounting. I made the video all-inclusive, so no matter what kind of gun on which you’re mounting your scope, you’ll find the instructions here.
I shoot at home because I work from home. I couldn't do this type of work if I had to drive to a range. Many airguns can safely be shot in your home, but you have to set up a range that works properly. I show you what I use and how I make sure that I don't cause a dangerous situation.
Airgun silencers that are removable and can be successfully used just one time on a firearm are considered to be firearms by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE). Yes, you read that correctly. The silencer that meets those specs is actually a FIREARM! Know the ins and outs of silencers, what you can use, what you can't use and how to stay legal.
While this shows the use of the Shooting Chrony, the basics of using a chronograph are the same across the board. Airgunners use chronographs a lot more than firearms shooters. Even if I weren't a writer, I would get a chronograph so I could pick the right fill level for my precharged pneumatic guns, select the best pellets for any gun and to make sure my gun is in top operating order. Read to find out all the things you've been misssing without a chronograph!
