Response to 5-Shots, 5-Strokes Compression at 15-Yards with Daisy Zinc-Coated BBs

This morning, I was anxious to pick-up my 760.
I warmed-up at 21-ft, 25-ft, 10-yds and 10-meters.
Then, I took notice there were a few pecans still set-up at 15-yards that I didn't finish
knocking-down from the prior day.
Last even, the sun was setting and shadows were enveloping my targets.
The black-sights coupled with the shadowy background made accurate shooting nearly impossible.

So, I decided to try and pick-off the remaining pecans.
Five-shots later, I had smashed three-pecans.
This was from a standing, off-hand position.
I need-not say, I was quite satisfied with myself.
But more-so, with the performance of my 760 with OEM open-sights.

Proving to myself, the 760's accuracy potential with BBs at 15-yards is not a fluke. LOL

A friend of mine not to long ago asked WHY I would chose to spend my time shooting a BB-gun
when there are many BETTER pellet rifle alternatives.
In-my-mind, the performance of my 760 provides the answer to his question - succinctly.
There is not any less-expensive way to practice marksmanship skills ... other than with a BB-gun.
Trigger-time is trigger-time ... regardless of the means of propulsion.
