    Rainy Day Fun

    They make some pretty cool replica air guns these days. It's much cheaper to practice with pellets and BB's. I stuffed some cardboard boxes with old cloths and slapped some splatter targets on the front.I have a heavy blanket behind protecting the wall. As long as I miss the refrigerator I'm good. I just bought a used Benjamin Trail NP Pistol off Ebay. It should have more power and accuracy.

    When I was in college many moons ago, outside of my bedroom we had a huge elm tree. At about the same time as spring finals, the starlings used to flock to the tree to eat the new seeds. As you can imagine, studying for finals was pretty boring so I used to shoot the starlings out of my window. I would have to go to the other side of the house to cock the bb gun so the birds wouldn't hear me, then
    come back and take aim. Wouldn't hurt the birds but when I got lucky, they would do a bit of flapping their wings! Good times!

      I think these guns might "hurt" a bird.

    Don't need a reason to shoot starlings!

      Low left for a right handed shooter=yanking the trigger. Smooth the pull.👍

        Practice “dry firing” helps a lot. But, pellets are a lot cheaper than ammo🤪😁

        Dry fire with a quarter balanced on the front site and then a nickle and later a dime.
        I have some steel targets, 4" and 8" and shoot from about ten yards. I need a lighter
        background though so I can see the target better.
