    Took the 3 remaining air pistols to the range today:
    - Weihrauch HW 70 .177 cal, springer
    - Weihrauch HW 45 .22 cal, springer
    - Air Ventura V10 .177 cal, pneumatic

    30' on 3.75" circles just for fun today.
    I couldn't see where the pellets were hitting at that distance, but pulled target up after 5 rounds for some KY windage/elevation, haha!
    10 rds per circle.
    Range 05.09.2023 at 3.75 in circles at 30'.jpg

    The usual 21' on 1.75" circles for non-optics.
    1st row: HW 70 did well for me today at 100%.
    2nd row: HW 45 I couldn't believe after a perfect 1st circle, & great 2nd circle,
    I ended up with 3 flyers on circles 3 & 4. This is my favorite air gun. :scratch:
    3rd row: The Air Ventura V10 usually gets 100%,
    but had a wild high flyer on my 1st shot.. :wallbash:

    Realized I hadn't taken the air pistols to the range in months.
    - Weihrauch HW 70 break barrel .177 cal, springer
    - Weihrauch HW 45 break barrel .22 cal, springer
    - Air Ventura V10 break barrel .177 cal, pneumatic

    My favorite to shoot is the HW 45 with its fiber optic front and rear sights.
    I have the HW 70 for sale in the Classifieds under "Airguns."
    Air Ventura V10 pneumatic continues to be the most consistent shooter.

    21" at 1.75" circles.
    5 rounds each circle.
