How Spring Guns Work & How to Maximize Their Effectiveness

Most folks whose primary shooting experience is with powder burners have trouble shooting spring air guns.  With either a .22 or a .30-.06’, folks tend to have a firm shoulder weld and a death grip on the fore end.  Both of these techniques are a recipe for inaccuracy with a spring air gun.
