Airpistol for additional precision practice?

Does anybody else sometimes feel that he has to practice more often? In my effort to be faster I have neglected precision a little bit and am working on it with airpistols since about three months. I have a pellet trap and do not have to pack the range bag, check into and out of the range, and the cost is minimal. At ten meters, I can again put all shots into the bullseye without the 10% flyers that I had before.

I excused my worsening precision with age related vision deterioration, I know better now but still have some way to go.

I noticed a big improvement in my shooting after using my Daisy CO2 pistol over the last two weeks. I went to the range today for the first time this year and started out better than I ended last year with my Kimber 22 conversion.

Thanks Oldfortyfiveauto,

the biggest improvement was noticed by my oldest son. He was always very fast and practiced speed in order to shine at the range. His accuracy was just okay until I got him to practice with the airpistol.

I convinced him to practice one-handed for just one week, I reminded him to analyze how he did and call his shot after each single shot. One handed shooting is a little less forgiving, so is shooting an airpistol.
When I took him to the range, he did much better with a .22 Colt Officers Match than usually, all shots but one were clearly in the bullseye at 25m and the average was over 8. To make it clear, he had a better result repeatedly with the .22 than with the airgun.

I am working on a 9 average with the airpistol....but to be consistently there, I will have to work a little bit harder. At the cost of $4 per tin of 500 pellets and without driving time, there are little excuses that I can use to just sit on the couch with a beer instead of trying to improve my shooting.
