Good grief! It's Friday already and I haven't posted a progress update after last week's trip out.

So, here goes.

Last week's trip to the range was all about parallax; trying to see it, understand it and deal with it.

Firstly I shot a couple of targets straight out of the blocks just to see where I was.

Then a bit of plinking followed by another round at targets.

This time I was taking special note of spotting the parallax and trying to take it into account (mobile phone to hand, planetairgun.com on screen, occasionally referring to previous posts from this thread). The results weren't bad but they weren't a vast improvement on the previous week.

Back to plinking away for a while, then a couple more targets.

This time I played with the magnification on my scope. Up to this point it's always been set at 6x so I tried turning it up to 9x.

I THINK I was more comfortable at 6x but it could just be what I'm used to. Anyway, the long and the short is that the last two targets were no better than the previous pair. At least the experimentation didn't make things any worse (which is more than can be said for other experiments in my time!).

I definitely do NOT feel that I have got to grips with parallax so it will be a focal point (geddit) for this evening's trip to the range.

Additional: I've put nearly 500 pellets down the barrel now so I am confident that it is "leaded in" (or whatever the term is) but I am also in the market to buy some more! I think I'll try a different brand/type because, as you lot have probably already guessed, I believe in experimenting.
..........so I packed up and went to the pub.
