January - Indoor Bench Rest

Precision Airguns hosted their first Indoor Bench Rest Event of 2013 on Thursday, January 31st.  Michigan's cold and snowy weather bought in eight dedicated airgun enthusiasts.  These are non sanctioned events with benches set at 50 feet giving individual shooters a chance to proof out various rifle, scope, pellet and rest combinations.  Thank you to everyone that came out.

With all the Great Choices in High End Air Rifles these days, I try to shoot a different rifle at every bench rest event we host. Steyr, FX, Theoben, an older ZM2002 Anschutz have all proved themselves to be Bench Rest Match Winners in previous events.  This month I chose a RAW TM1000 12fpe .177 laminate stock. What a wonderful rifle to shoot, stable, quiet, accurate.  Topped with a Leupold 6.5x20 EFR and using 7.9 JSB's  I was able to shoot a 750 35X.
