Yes Mr Blerky.....very wise to learn the basics of your craft before deciding if high spec, all singing all dancing kit would be a benefit to your shooting performance and pleasure.


A golfer can have a million every expensive clubs in his bag, but that doesn't mean he gonna stick that lil' ball into the hole any easier or better, does it!?!?

This all smacks of the well known saying.......'All the gear, and no idea'. ;D

I'm sure we all love our more expensive kit,i know I do sometimes, but...  there's nothing to touch shooting a breakbarrel with a basic scope /ironsights.
I plink , therefore I am.

I'm the same; back in the day, I started out with a break-barrel springer and a pretty basic scope.

And I'm still using it and enjoying it after all this time  (four weeks).

For me it's the  'feedback' the gun gives me that makes it worthwhile. I'm starting to feel which shots are good/bad as the gun recoils.

Does that sound like a clinically mental issue?
..........so I packed up and went to the pub.

I'm back at the range tomorrow evening so I may have to fiddle with my front optic setting.

Before I do that, however, can anyone recommend a technique to get one's eye to focus on the target rather than the recticle?

I hope you don't mean your Jap Eye!!! :o :o :o

Getting the ret in sharp focus for your eyesight by viewing a blank sky/wall/piece of paper and adjusting the rear eyebell should then allow the target and ret to be in perfect harmonious focus.
