So much so that some of the guys who compete in target competitions will shoot ONLY the rifle they plan to use in said competition for at least a month or so beforehand. They say that there's some re-learning of any rifle after you've been shooting something else, and it's a luxury/detriment they can't afford if they want a good score.
It's not that hard to understand. Each rifle you shoot tends to have its own shooting characteristics and preferences--weight, hold, balance, and trigger break to name just some of the essentials. There are more.
So, while it's nice to own more than one air rifle, there's a price to pay when you 'change partners'--no two dance exactly the same.
My above comments were merely an adjunct to yours. The things you mentioned could also help explain the need-for and benefits-of a warm-up period.
