This is very subjective. You can practice daily for 3 months and can be ready for qualifying many competitions. Getting a rank would need a lot more and will depend how much one can dedicate in terms of time and energy.

All depends on your practice and skill. If you are starting out with air rifles, I presume it is going to be with open sights. In general if you can keep 80 percent of the shots within the black ISSF air rifle target, you are ready for competing. If you are shooting with peep sights, then at least 80% of your shots have to be within the 8 ring and the rest must be greater than or equal to 8.
