Nice range

Hi Alejandro, That looks like a great place to spend time shooting, all that practice will pay off and sharpen the skills. Do you mostly shoot offhand? Offhand is pretty hard for me. We used to spend hours with our daisy BB guns shooting a hanging shotgun shell, and trying to keep it moving. All the practice made us pretty good shots. Thanks for sharing your range, wish I had a pecan tree!

Shooting Off-Hand for Qualification Training Practice

March 19 2017, 8:35 PM 

I'm primarily shooting off-hand to practice for an upcoming qualification requirement.
A few months ago, I was selected to be the Armory Officer for the small prison unit I work at.
In due time, I must become Munitions Qualified.
One of the qualifying tasks for certification is firing 10-shots, off-hand, within the 8-ring
of a B-27 target at 100-yards.

So, my 1-inch pecan target at 10-yards effectively simulates a 10-inch pie plate at 100-yards.
And, with my Daisy 953 modded with AR-15/16 GI peep-sights ... I'm getting some effective practice
in staying within the 8-ring.

Looks like fun

I guess that the only thing that I might suggest is replacing the BB gun brick with a foam block, to eliminate the possibility of a bounce back/ricochet.

Back yard range

One of the best things about shooting air rifles is that
it is hard to run out of targets.

That sure is a target rich environment. Nice going!
With that many pecans you must have quite a few squirrels?

No Tree Squirrels .. Just Hungry Birds

March 19 2017, 9:01 PM 

Naw, no tree squirrels ... I live on the fringe of the Chihuahuan Desert.
And, few ground squirrels - too many hungry feral cats. LOL
But, when my pellet strikes break-up some pecans ... here come the birds - ready to eat.

Pressure Treated 2X4

Awwww, I've been considering using some pressure treated 2-inch X 4-inch lumber
to replace the bricks.
