Aim with the compressed air rifle

When selecting a rifle make sure you have at least one fixed sight on the cannon. We recommend wearing protective glasses to avoid any injury when shooting.

To aim reload the rifle on your right shoulder, it is well known that most are made for right-handed users, if you are left-handed, do it with your left brazier.

Place your dominant hand on the handle and keep your finger off the trigger. Notice the distance from your shoulder to the handle. Your hand must be at the same distance from the top of the cannon to be balanced.

To follow the target with your rifle do not move your eyes, rotate with your body and the weapon so that your eyes stay aligned with the cannon. This allows you to see along the canyon only by slightly shaking your head, it is more comfortable.

Set your goal, in case you have a specialized sight even when you are a newbie, read the manufacturer’s instructions. Many have a small piece of metal at the tip closest to you and a vertical stick (sometimes inside a ring) at the end of the canyon. With this type of view, you have to align your rifle so that the target is right in the center of the vertical and then lift the barrel so that the stick fills the midpoint. In newer rifles you will have two red dots on the side closest to you and a green dot on the other side of the canyon. Repeat the last steps in the same way. Remember: Look back, look forward, aim.

Breathe deeply, the rifle should rise a little, keep the sights aligned. Exhale and inhale slowly. While the rifle sinks, the target will go down your target. When you reach the target, gently pull the trigger.

Look where the shot landed. No sight is perfect, so adjust. If you shot too high, aim a little down. If you went a lot to the right, point to the left.

Keep practicing Restart the procedure described here until you get used to and perfect your technique.

Tips and tricks.

  • Know your compressed air rifle, each rifle has its special stuff.
  • Start shooting from short range, and gradually move backwards while having better aim.

  • Have a little patience, practice makes perfect.
  • Check beyond your goal, because that will be when you fail.
