    Default Target shooting at 10m using open sights

    Anyone else enjoy informal 10m target shooting and what do you use.

    I use my Weihrauch HW30s as its light and easy for standing shots

    I also have a DIY Bell Target which is also fun at 10m.

    I have been looking at the Daisy 853 single stroke pneumatic as with its
    Lothar Walther barrel and low recoil should make a good target rifle .
    It also has rather basic diopter sights

    I enjoy shooting my old springers at 10m, open sights.

    Had some real fun with a Feinwerkbau 300s shooting a scaled down bench rest target. Quite difficult and demanding, using the diopter sights!

    Maybe a postal fun competion at 10m should be resurrected?

    I regularly do Bell Target shooting to the original rules, albeit on paper targets. Lots of fun.

    I have an old Gecado model 76 I think, recoilles springer. Unfortunately I don't have diopter sights for it, so use a 4x scope.

    We use it to shoot a 8mm reset targt at 10m when my shooting friend come to play. GREAT fun.

    I'm looking for a nice set of sights at give away price if anybody knows of one laying around.
