Learning to Shoot with Air Rifles and Rimfires

Our British cousins have proved on occasions that a green man can learn rifle shooting faster with an empty gun than when at once started in with a full charge military rifle. By way of proving to the student the value of his aiming and pulling they have invented a sub-target practice rod, a steel rod the length of the barrel, actuated by a coil spring which is released by the pull of the trigger. A target is hung up a few inches in front of the muzzle, and on pulling the point of the rod is driven into it, thus demonstrating the accuracy of the aim.

Whatever utility the sub-target rod may have, our Briton seems generally to prefer an air rifle. In air rifles there is little doubt that England leads this country or any other. Air rifle barrels are attached to the army gun, thus giving the novice the same weight, sights, and trigger pull as though he were using the service rifle. The air rifle missiles are very accurate; ten shots have been placed in a half inch circle at twenty-five yards, with power enough to drive the bullet through three-fourths inches of pine. Beyond question good practice can be had with an air gun at distances of from seven to twenty-five yards and ammunition is cheap, fifteen cents a thousand rounds.

In this country the .22 short takes the place of the sub-target rod and the air rifle. The ammunition is more accurate, and while it costs more, yet the man who can find time to practice will rarely consider the small cost of cartridges a matter of moment. The student with military tendencies can procure a .22 musket an army gun in all but caliber, in this way becoming perfectly familiar with the service arm. However, for general purposes the .22 single-shot or pump-action rifle will be found all sufficient.

Indoors or out, whichever may be most convenient, at distances from ten yards up the beginner should now practice at every opportunity. If his work is to be of practical benefit his off-hand firing should be with extended arm only. No desire to put up finer scores must be allowed to tempt him into trying the use of any form of hip or body rest.
