Shot the new PP700S -A as well as my Gauntlet on CO2 tonight.
Here are the results. The handgun targets all shot with the handgun.
The target top right has the first 3 groups from the handgun, while
roughing in the red dot sight. top row was shot with the Crossman
14.43gr. HP - nice. The middle target is a 10 shot group with a flyer, at 8PM.
The bottom group is 5 shots aiming 6 o'clock.
The bottom three targets are with the H&H Barracuada (Pointy)RN Match 21.30gr.
The left 2 targets are 5 shots each with what looks like a flyer at 2 o'
clock, but that is a 5 shot group in about 1/10" c to c.
The right hand target has 15 shots in it.
The bottom rifle targets are all 10 & 5 shot groups with the Gauntlet on CO2.
Seems to be a VERY accurate pistol.

Wow! Says something about the shooter as well!! Even benched with a vice it'd be tough to get some of those groups!

Tks Wes, but it was only at 10 meters & I was using a red dot sight. The first group of 3, 3shot groups were fired with the bottoms of my hands on the table top. I then went out to the truck and got a sand bad and rested the bottom of the reservoir on the bag. This felt much more secure, but the groups got worse, although more fun shooting - less strain/stress I guess. The sight picture appeared more stable, but the groups were larger. This might have been technique- will have to check that out. Shooting again Sunday afternoon from 50 or 60feet. That will be fun shooting the steel silhouettes.
Actually, when you think about it, shooting these small groups, even at this very close range, is difficult to match with a powder burning handgun.

Excellent shooting!!!

I'm assuming that was a two handed hold or the Canadian Olympic Team will want to talk to you.

Yes - 2 hands - that's way I was taught to shoot & taught my team as well. I find standing one hand does not give me the accuracy
I want or demand. It, of course, is a discipline of it's own, one I am not currently, interested in. One of the guys does have some loaner
Olympic FWB's for loan, usually at the Wed. night shoot. He had big hands and so they fit me perfectly.
As I noted, I also cheated with a red dot sight.

....That's impressive, for sure......I always use Gamo 6yd targets set at close to 10 meters....I find the white 'bullseye' helps and my goal is to fill that white spot ....Without anyone to 'compete' with, I find myself competing one airgun against another for a challenge....With a small collection of different pistol types, it's never boring....and even though .177 is more proper for precision shooting, sometimes an afternoon shoot with a pair of old .22 38Ts really scratches the itch .....

The large targets are the Official 10 Metre Air Pistol Target for the SFC - Shooting Federation of Canada.

The smaller ones are the SFC Air Rifle 10 Metre Official targets. Stamped right on them.

Sunday afternoon is another indoor air gun day - rifle and pistol, but from 50 or 60 feet. That day, we'll shoot silhouette animals from that range, rifle and handgun as well as plink on paper (use same targets) - or is it the other way around?

chickens, turkeys, pigs and rams :drinkers:
