Pumpkin-on-Post Sight Picture ... Increasing Range ... Increase Compression Strokes

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

I also experimented with maintaining the "pumpkin-on-post" sight picture.
With 3-strokes of compression, the "pumpkin-on-post" POA worked well
at 21-feet, 25-feet and 10-yards (30-feet).

When I transitioned to 10-meters (33-feet) in-order to maintain the same POA
I added a stroke-of-compression ... 4-strokes total.

Even further down-range at at 15-yards (45-feet), I intuitively included another
stroke-of-compression for good-measure when engaging pecans at the greater distance
The additional compression kept the "pumpkin-on-post" POA feasible.

Like I said earlier, the ability to add more compression-per-shot as required per-shot
is another great advantage of a multi-stroke pneumatic.
Whether for more power or flatter trajectory ... a MSP can deliver on-demand.
