Lol, I only shoot 2 trees, Mr. Ken!

You know, at this distance you need to watch out for canting. If you cant it a bit to the right the POI goes that way too and vice versa.

It does not like to be held tight too! Like all scoped rifles, I shoot with my left palm on the turrets to make the rifle steadier but majority of them do not like it--this one does not!

Cant? You mean 'tilt'?

I have a little bit OCD, so I mounted my scope straight and horizontal well, and do so while shooting :)

And I noticed myself don't like to grab the gun tight while shooting... Especially after I got my HW45, I more like to let the gun shoots by his own no matter a springer or others... Anyway, still looking for a better way to shoot and keep learning too! Just too less time for shooting ~ :D

Yes, Mr. Ken, I meant tilt.

My long distance AA S5 pc rifle does have a cant level, which was very useful when I did long shots.

Yes, most guns like to be held lightly, even airguns. I was just trying to test it if it was not hold sensitive at all.

The husband of my sis in-law taught me some techniques a long time ago but I have yet to master it.

He was German (now deceased, so bless his soul!) and was a rimfire champion in his club for 6 straight years in Germany. He was always short of achieving a perfect score though, coming short of 2 points all the time.

I asked him once why he did not join the Olympics and he told me, " Richard, I am not good enough. Those countrymen of mine who are in the Olympics are triple A shooters and have been sifted, so they are the best of the best".

Murphy's law again for missing 2 points to the full mark all the time? I know at that very last shot there would be so much pressure and It's SOOOOO hard to become perfect!

But the gentleman just very very good at shooting! He's a born shooter no doubt, but always Ace just only one and he might just lack of some luck...
