    Indoor shooting, any one set up one here’s mine.

    My temporary fix to keep the rust off my trigger finger.
    Three layers of canvas painters drop cloth free hanging and the pellets from the Walther just drop undamaged to the table.
    I do get bounce off the metal targets but they only wind up on the floor in front of the table.
    Distance 32feet.
    Walther CP88 Competition 17 caliber.

    I've been shooting air pistol in my basement office for a while now. Distance is a little under 20 feet- all I can get easily. Since the air pistols I use are so low powered- HW 75 and a Beeman P2- I'd be surprised if either was over 400fps, I use a cardboard box stuffed with old pants.

    I've never been into air pistols/rifles but in times like these its something I have been looking into. Was checking out some reviews on youtube last night and may include a few in future purchases.

    I enjoy the act of shooting greatly, so the more I get to shoot, the happier I am. I get more fun out of my air pistols than I do my firearms. The home range is nearly always open. I think over the past few months I've put a just under three thousand pellets into that setup shown above. More powerful airguns would require something different, but what I have works fine.

    These are what I shoot with most of the time. Have used the hw75 (target grips) the most, but lately the p2 is seeing more use. Both use the same single stroke pneumatic pump mechanism.

    I have a small collection of airguns that I shoot in the garage on work-at-home days when I need a break. Some of the guns I have are equipped with horrid double action only triggers, which helps keep my hands used to shooting my double action firearms. :D

    Just a few moments ago, I took the Polish spring piston wonder to my garage range. It's a wonder it can penetrate a card stock target as the velocity is so low. :D

    Still shoots pretty good for having a creepy and heavy trigger.

    I like the looks. It has an “Eastern Bloc”look about it.
