I probably put about a $1000 into it. Nice 4 x 8, 2 1/4" thick plywood back board with shroud on a stand with 2 new picnic table set at about 20 yards. Even have a umbrella at my table! Lol. Have another picnic table under the backboard with various spinning targets, reset target and a pellet trap. It's fun for me and the kids although I've spent far too much on gun stuff this year. Just bought the last 3 daisy 953's from princess auto this weekend. Cool little guns but gutless. I'm going to dress one up for my collection though just for fun. The 5 shot clips are kind of cool. Pretty accurate too.

For those who might be interested, I want to say that I found a grip/hold that works for me when shooting this gun so that I get consistent results :

This hold started to give me some nice results but I am still working on the consistency. It is no joke, the 9.5 rate by Stephen Archer is spot on - shooting great with this gun needs practice, practice and... practice.

Hey, thanks for the reference, Voldar :D . Could be useful before buying an air rifle, compared to the guns you already have!

You are very welcome, airmec. I knew about the "rate gun calculator" before buying mine and I can say it is challenging indeed to shoot the NP2. But it is more fun too than shooting my 22LR. K
And if we are here, I'd say the Strelock application (I am using it on my Windows Phone) is a great one ! Here are some screenshots of it:

Setup the gun caracteristics (zeroed at 15 yards, balistics and scope type)
Image

Setup for the distance and Wind speed/Direction
Image

Where to aim in the given conditions at a 10x scope magnification (mine is a CenterPoint 4-16x 40 AO)
Image

Different configurations for different ranges (it does have the energy power too)
Image

I find this application an excellent one and for Windows Phone owners it costs less than the one for iOS.

Wow, I sure need to have a serious look at that Strelock app. Would be nice to have it on my laptop. Thanks again for sharing, Voldar :supz:.
