New Shooter

Last weekend I did something that I have been talking about and meaning to do for the last six months. While at Cabelas, I had my son pick out an air rifle. Yesterday we got a chance to take it out to the backyard and put some lead through it. He did surprisingly well, he listened and he took it serious. I could not have asked for a better experience.

I could however have picked out a better rifle.....I got the Gamo Shadow 1250, the trigger is quite possibly the worst trigger I have ever handled. I've got an aftermarket part on order that will supposedly fix that.

Silly me I wasn't thinking, I fired off my first few shots using the pellets that came with the rifle. It had no problem pushing them supersonic as advertised. I may as well have just pulled my 22 out of the safe and shot that off in the backyard. For me it was awkward, I am not used to shooting in the backyard, it's not something I've ever been able to do. My neighbors.....they don't care.

I spent most of my life living in Kommiefornia suburbia, it just wasn't ever a possibility to even think about. I had neighbors that complained about me shooting a paintball gun. Here we have about 3/4 acre backed up by a large lawn and a hill belonging to somebody else. I feel comfortable with the air rifle (especially since I see my neighbors do it) but anything bigger or more powerful just isn't feasible without being able to actually do it on the property behind us. Trust me I'd love nothing more than to be able to.
