Another Factor: Switching from Rifle to Rifle is One Known Cause of What You Describe

Response to I find it takes several shots to start shooting well

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.

Happy Shooting!
