I live in town so target practicing with my real guns is out of the question. What does the group think on using similar type BB guns to practice when I can't go to the range? Also as far as using a BB rifle to target practice will 30 feet be long enough (the widest part of my yard)?
I do BB guns in my basement for close range moving while shooting scenarios. I love it! I think it makes me a better rounded shooter (at least close range) It's also real cheap and I can shoot anytime.
Want some real cool air rifles look here
10 yards with a bb gun is standard. Although it may take some time to make a nice group.
I also shoot in my back yard . from the back steps to the fence its 50 feet 9 1/2 inches . i have a 4x4 piece of plywood nailed to the fence with a picture of someone we all love . the guy nextdoor has called the police on me a couple of times . the police tells him to go back in his house and to mind his own damn business. i had one officer take a few shots himself . we are now good friends and go shooting together . LMAO
I had a 3 hour drive to practice with shotgun, rifle, and pistol, until the family sold off the property. Couldn't/can't afford to buy it or another. Scraped by to join 2 clubs for a bit, one pistol, the other anything, but quite a drive. Down to the pistol club where we have 2 groups for kids to learn safety & firearms shooting. Don't get to shoot much, still $$$ issues (4 kids of my own - one in 2nd year in college, one going next fall & one after that, plus a grandson) But we can shoot air rifles and .22s at the pistol club so I practice with them as I can. Can't shoot in any yard, neighbors too close. But I find that when I can get to the bigger rifles, one or two practice shots is all I need. So there is a benefit to practicing CORRECTLY with the the light stuff.
