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 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.
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.
I bet you've read articles that talk about the poor accuracy of airguns. These are often written by people who don't know the basics of holding/shooting a spring-piston gun or they don't understand that pellet shape and weight can impact accuracy. Let me show you what you can expect. Spoiler alert: You can get GREAT accuracy from airguns...if you know the basics.
