Winning On The Rifle Range
Second, with the amount of people handling the guns and the general knocking about they get, the sights tend not to be zeroed in. A military sniper wouldn’t pick up a rifle and just start firing it expecting to hit something, they spend time zeroing the sights for a given range. Unfortunately as you are tending to have to pay to use a gun on the fairground you don’t really have the luxury of firing dozens of rounds to do this (well you could but it would probably be expensive).
There is however a simple technique you can use called aiming off. What you do is take your first shot aimed at the bullseye (Picture 1). Then look at where the pellet actually hits. Lets imagine it hits about an inch high and an inch to the right (Picture 2). To fire on target you need to aim the same distance “off”. So for the next shot you would aim an inch low and an inch to the left (Picture 3)
This should enable you to use the rifle with a reasonable amount of accuracy
