Shooting For The First Time Using An Airgun To Train-widcomm

Business Hunting for land roaming creatures wasnt part of my childhood, although seeking swimming critters was. So my exposure to guns was quite limited. I dont recall ever shooting a gun until I was 30. I grew up in a small town, just 40 miles from a big city of 400,000 people. I fished with my dad and grandmother, camped, rode a bicycle, and mowed lawns. I knew my grandpa had a shotgun, but I had never touched it or saw it in action. My first real exposure to a gun was when I was 8 or 9, my dad and I ventured into the woods with my grandpa and a relative to shoot rabbits. All I remember was the unexpected blast terrifying me at that young age. After that, shooting and hunting wasnt something I was exposed to as a youth, but I continued to enjoy fishing. So, going to work for a fishing lure manufacturer after college was a natural progression. I loved to fish. I was decent at catching them, but not the greatest at locating them, but hey, thats why its good to know and work with great local guides and famous fishermen. I learned to catch a variety of species in various waters. But after almost 10 years and a family, it was time for an employment change, which led me to the shooting sports and my introduction to shooting. I learned quicklythat unlike fishing, shooting provides instant gratification. My first shot was with a replica BB gun, a Walther PPK/S that uses a CO2 capsule to shoot steel BBs. I thought it was cool because the slide cycles, imitating the real gun. My next one was a CP99 .pact BB pistolmuch the same as the PPK and another Walther replica. Then I shot an RWS break barrel rifle. Its amazing the amount of power an RWS Air Rifle has from just cocking the spring piston one time. After .fortable with daily handling, I had the opportunity to fire a couple of firearms. The first was a Walther P22. Nice pistol. I really enjoyed the friendly target .petitions and I wasnt half bad considering it was my first time with a firearm. I gave my friends a challenge when it came to hitting the smallest target. Since then Ive shot some larger caliber pistols, a couple of shotguns, done a little shooting with dad, joined the NRA and my local gun club and obtained a conceal carry license. I continue to pick up airguns, but I have yet to find an airgun that tops the Smith Wesson 586 revolver. I bought a pair.Theyre a big hit on date nights with my wife, who hadn’t shot a gun until she was 28. It’s never too late to develop a passion for shooting. 相关的主题文章:
