More P17 shots. 15 feet with JSb 8.4 gr pellets, standing off hand (two hands). < I hope that is how it is actually called???

No sighters, just straight to shooting since it was sighted for these pellets and distance last time (yesterday). That is a paintball in the middle just for a reference to size.



This is the same shooting at above except with the Daisy 953 at 20 yards, rested and shooting JSB 7.3 gr pellets. I feel this rifle will do better than this. I cleaned the barrel AFTER shooting this. I hope to do this again tomorrow with the cleaned barrel and see if there is any improvement. It has a Beeman Blue Ribbon 2-7x scope on it on 7x.

I just never heard of one like that. Are they known for good accura? For what it's worth I think it looks pretty awesome.

Yes, they are know for accuracy. More so on the 853 and 753 models. Those are supposed to have a LW barrel on them from what I understand. The 953, the one that I have, is the more entry level model and doesn't have the LW barrel on it. I recently bought this one used off of the classifieds on another airgun site so it's fairly new to me. It's low powered and designed to be an entry level youth 10m rifle. It's so fun and refreshing.

was open the word processor on my computer & open a blank page.

Then I typed a period & made the size large, so it was about the size of a 22 pellet.

I then tried different styles of font until I got one that was round (some fonts are squarish, or oval when enlarged).

Once you find the correct size, font, & color, create a page full of dots & save it.

You can instantly print up a whole page of target dots (I put from 16 to 25 on a page) using very little ink.

I also use the letter "O" the same way, adjusting between bold & regular, font style, color & size.

Nice shooting. That garden appears to be well protected.

I will try your target making procedure someday. I'm pretty "spur of the moment" so I may not even think about doing it until I am actually going to shoot! ha ha! As long as I have a Sharpie marker for backup, I should at least be able to survive. Making a target like you suggest, would be a good exercise in expanding my computer skills.

I like to shoot the dots... aim small, miss small, right?

But they can be a huge tool in getting form down, working on Offhand shots (pays off on the FT course) and just having fun.....Also if you have company and they want to shoot, this is the gun to teach them with.

I can shoot mine all day and not have it wear me out like the TX or the Diana does. Ive used it to practice FT in the garage, sniped flys at 10 yards, and use it to fine tune technique.....

I got mine from the Great Falls 4H 10m club after they upgraded to the CO2 versions......

Simplicity at its finest, take the open sights off, drop on a 12x-16x mildot and start making bug holes.....

I always try to aim at something small, to hit something small, but unfortunately I usually miss my small target by a small amount

So yes, I aim small & I miss small

They weren't cheap, but the optics were great/clear and they seemed to hold up very well.

Hey dB, guess what?

My 12 year old daughter made me 3 dot targets on the computer. Each has 20 dots and each paper of dots has a different size dot to shoot at. She made a small, medium and large dot targets 🎯. Now I can just print and shoot! Ha ha ha! Thanks for the tip.
