Reader Peter has an interesting question about rifle practice that I can’t answer.
Anyone else want to take a stab at a response?
Here’s my question: I could use some help selecting a good air rifle for Appleseed practice, and I suspect others might also be interested in that sort of information. Whenever I go to the range I drag along my CZ452s and burn a couple hundred rounds in 25 and 50 yd 3-position (one has peep sights, the other a 6X scope). What I need is something I can pick up every day or two at home and work with for 20 minutes. My handgun skills are good – I’ve shot IPSC for 30 years, IDPA for 15, and ICORE for several, and have been teaching NRA Basic Pistol and FIRST Steps pistol and rifle (actually, lately FIRST Steps rifle has become mostly an AR-15 carbine class….) for 20+ years, shot 3-gun, and tackled an occasional High Power match. But, I really need to work on my 3-position rifle to get much better at it, not just for Appleseed, but to correct the years of “rifle neglect.”
What might you suggest as a suitable air rifle for frequent practice?
