I'm going to give away my experience level here........ And spill it all out in hopes for any of you guys comments or words of wisdom, I need all I can get.
Can I get an explanation of the felt. seen, or heard effects of your shrouds and breaks? In particularly Paul's.
As for my spring gunning experience level;
I am not a paper addict. I am a distance target addict. I check for accuracy on paper. The only time I take a critter life is when they are eating holes in my house.
I fabricated and placed several steel spinners placed at various distances and heights around my wooded lot to keep me in shape. They are not obvious enough to hurt curb appeal.
I have been looking at clubs and events in my area and have the fever. I also have access to 4000 acres to roam.
I had a Gamo 220 Hunter for years finally stolen. Back then I though it was really something.
I shot a B26 before and after a full tune and experienced felt contrast.
I was given the opportunity to shoot a stock R9 and that's where I got the real fever.
I really made a real spectacle of myself trying to hold and shoot the R9 off bags like my 30.06 and .300WM. Heh! I am getting the hang of how to hold now. My buddy was rolling in the isles at my dismay and facial expressions.
I am really trying to stalk up on a Paul Watts R9. I most likely cannot afford a super custom eye candy show piece. Its what's under the hood that most concerns me - Hint Hint.
I never shot a .22 pellet and being I like the fringe distances I may want to stick with .177?
