Thanks KALAIVANAN and essdee1972 for your tips. I'll keep them in mind. I'll not be re-using pellets.

Target practice with my IHP35 - a tree leaf at 10m

Postby Peace Lover » Thu Nov 01, 2012 10:11 am

Guys I had been out for a while now. First it was viral fever and then I had to go out of station, so couldn't target practice. Post the fever, I was weak even to cock my IHP35. Now I'm fine and want to share my experiences today with target practice.

I fired 17 Mastershot flathead pellets (0.177) at a tree leaf around 10m away from my balcony from a standing position. Three pellets missed, the rest you can see for yourself in the photograph below. Sorry for the picture quality, I had to zoom a lot and digital zoom is not sharp.

What are your comments about the grouping?

What are your suggestions on keeping the rifle barrel steady from a standing position?

Well I found a few tips for keeping the barrel steady at Yahoo answers.

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index ... 834AAtnFBu

One answer which I liked was:

"We all wobble a little.What you need is good trigger control. As you are on the target gently squeeze the trigger. As you move off the target maintain the pressure,no more no less. As you come back on target start squeezing again. If you move off stop squeezing but maintain the pressure. Sooner or later when you are lined up with the target BANG. Try it. I wobble more than many but with a practiced trigger I can out shoot many people."

In a nutshell, to steady your shot:

Breathe
Relax
Aim
Sight
Squeeze

My 3~7x20 rifle scope

Postby Peace Lover » Thu Nov 29, 2012 10:58 pm

My rifle scope finally arrives. Its a 3~7x 20 zoomable scope for 22mm rails. Clarity is great and the crosshairs appear sharp.

I'm now thinking of ways to fit it to my IHP 35 that has neither rails nor grooves to fit rails.

where you got it from Dealextrem or ebay. same scope costs around Rs1600/- locally. not very good but does well to begin with at low cost.
http://target-tune.in/international/products/IHP-scope-mount.html this will be helpful , I had same scope and used this rail on my IHP35.

Haven't mounted it. Still looking for ways...I'll probably have to buy a 22mm rail for it.

you should have gone for 20mm rail as well from DX as well http://dx.com/p/gun-rail-mount-13mm-5847?rt=1&p=2&m=2&r=3&k=1&t=1&s=8183&u=5847 and you can use the following procedure
http://targettune.wordpress.com/2012/04/27/fixing-scope-rail/ , I have used same procedure when I brought 11mm rail from TTI.

Nope it won't fit on 22mm, as I thought earlier. I have already ordered an 11mm from DX.

yes, customer feed back says 11mm rail , but no details are given by seller. similar thing happened with me when I ordered laser gun mount it was 22mm I was expecting 11mm and seller had not given such details.

Pellets Dispenser for your hand

Postby Peace Lover » Sat Dec 15, 2012 11:32 am

I was browsing the internet the other day and came across a pellets dispenser for hand in the GSmith web site: http://www.gsmithco.com/accessories1.htm

I thought, why not we make this at home using some sort of used plastic container. The best bet was the container of Tic Tac Candy Lozenges. Available for Rs.10/- the lozenges are good too. You can make the opening smaller with a little modification. Holds about 200 0.177 pellets. It is easier to use than a round pellet container with a screw type lid.

Peace Lover wrote:Hello Everybody,

This is my first post to the forum. I have been very passionate about guns & target shooting from my childhood but have never owned a gun as such, except plastic or toy guns. I want to own a gun now that I'm self-sufficient and can set aside a little time to pursue my hobby.

I'm currently residing in Delhi and after reading thru the various posts in this forum I zeroed in on a few dealers in Chandni Chowk and and Kashmere Gate areas. Yesterday, being a Sunday I found all the dealers in Kashmere Gate closed (I knew this arlier,but wanted to take a chance). Coming to Chandni Chowk, I was easily able to locate a shop called Pt. Narsingh Dass & Sons near the Gurudwara. The owner, a very soft-spoken gentle old man, showed me the following brands which he had amongst air guns:

1. ISW Air Gun - 0.22 cal / Max Range 60m / Accurate Range 24m - Prices Rs 3500/-, 3800/-

2. DAW Air Gun - 0.22 cal / Max Range 70m - 80m - Prices Rs 3200/-, 3500/-, 4500, 4700, 5000 (0.177 cal)

3. Hunter Air Gun - 0.22 cal / Max Range 60 - 70m - Price Rs. 3500

4. Diana (Indian make) - 0.22 / Max range 80m / Price 6000/-

All the above brands are from Kolkata, he said. According to him, the best one for target practice would be the ISW, of which he as around 6 pcs in stock and I'd be able to choose one to my liking.

I asked him about IHP 35 and he said it is out of production. My question is what are your opinions on the above brands? Are these trustworthy OR have you even heard of these? Only ISW is providing a 6 months warranty on a card that also mentions its specs. DAW is heavier but the trigger is not smooth. ISW has a really smooth trigger. I believe elsewhere in this forum, someone recommends 0.177 as the choice for target shooting. But in this shop I found the 0.177 guns to be comparatively expensive - Rs 5000 and above. Can you also recommend that for a first gun, should I go for one of the above brands or buy an IHP?


Thank you in advance.


Sir,
I am willing to buy ISW .22 cal mod 35. Previousy i owned both
Mod 35 and 50. Online this brand is not available.I searched a lot. Can you please help me?
I am a big lover of this brand.. pls help..
