  5. Use the artillery hold
  6. Read the article, watch the video and be amazed at your tight groups:

  7. Right gun for the right purpose
  8. One size does not fit all. You can't buy a single airgun for every need. Golfers use many different clubs. Airgunners need more than one gun.

  9. Shoot!
  10. Get off the internet, get on the range!

  11. Stop it!
  12. Get a good pellet trap. Good traps cost money, but they never go away.

  13. Oil your gas guns
  14. Pellgunoil keeps them running.

  15. Right targets
  16. Good ones make it easier to size groups and easier to aim. When properly sized, they help you improve your accuracy. On 10-meter rifle targets, the bull is sized for the aperture front sight inserts...bigger bulls are too large for those apertures. On 10-meter pistol targets, the bull is sized to the width of the front sight post on a target pistol.

  17. Stand right
  18. Proper stance adds points to your score. Below is a blog post about the proper 10-meter pistol stance.

  19. Shoot field target & shoot better
  20. At my old field target club, a local SWAT team sniper came out to "show us how it's done." Mr. SWAT just knew that he was a better shot than all the old duffers with their huge scopes. He scored in the middle of the pack and left with his tail between his legs. Others who have tried a similar approach have gone through progressively better springers until they finally settled on an accurate PCP. By that time, they were considerably better shots. Below are some blogs you can read about field target.
