For many of us, an air rifle was our first introduction to shooting.

But an air rifle isn’t just a toy. It can be a great survival weapon for self defense or for hunting. The video below from the Fieldsports Channel explains how you can become a master hunter using an air gun.

This film clearly explains the fundamentals of setting up your air rifle for the type of hunting you want to do. We compare drop-off between pellet sizes, look at holdover, and show how important it is to zero your rifle at the right distance to improve accuracy. High speed video is used to help us understand how the pellet flies through the air and the compensation needed to make a clean kill. Once happy with the rifle on targets we then head out into the field for rabbits, pigeons and crows. This film was first shown in Fieldsports Britain, episode 134.
