This refreshing activity is lot of fun and gives a sense of achievement. When I decided to go for an air-soft gun almost a year ago, I was apprehensive about many things. First of all I was worried about whether it can really be a hobby for me. But it turned to be a better one.

Airsoft-Air Rifle Shooting can be a Nice Hobby

Sports shooting is lot of fun and gives a sense of achievement. It can be a hobby for people of all ages. When I decided to go for an air-soft gun almost a year ago, I was apprehensive about many things. First of all I was worried about whether it can really be a hobby for me. Nevertheless, I decided to give it a try for two reasons. First, I was interested in finding out a pass time for my husband and secondly, I was myself interested in exploring it. We spent around 3500 bucks INR to procure a spring piston air rifle. After one year, when I am trying to compile a page out of my experiences, I have to admit that it really lived up to our expectations. In this article, my primary purpose is not just to share my experiences, but to motivate others to go for it as a hobby for good reasons.

My Experience in Airsoft Shooting

When it comes to sharing of my experiences, I may share it in a single phrase that it was an excellent hobby and an engagement in some creative pursuits related to airgun shooting.

As mentioned earlier, my experiences in shooting had been rewarding. In an article on hubpages, I have discussed in detail how this had helped my husband reduce smoking significantly. But for me too, it gave a lot of sense of achievement.

When I pulled the trigger for the first time, I do not know where the pellet went. I mean I was so bad with it. But gradually It improved. I used to take print out of targets and fire at them. It usually takes time to get accustomed with the gun and the gun take time to get acclimatised with you. There are a few other things associated with shooting as a hobby and I shall be discussing those in different other articles. In the present article, I shall focus only on issues related to shooting, pellets and what to do with pellets after they are fired. One may freely download and get print out of the targets used in Olympic events associated with 10 mtr air gun shooting from the wikipedia page on shooting sports in Olympics.

It is a sincere request that you use a suitable target, either home made or purchased from the gun shop. Never use live animals in your backyard as targets. There is no need to kill or hurt anyone for fun. You shall get a lot of satisfaction when you notice your accuracy improving day by day. If you wish you may use animal pictures as targets, but I would suggest that you use paper targets used in sports events. Please consider this hobby as a sport activity that increases your concentration and at the same time gives you a sense of satisfaction. Do not become a sadist who enjoys hurting others.
