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 be.ing .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:
