The short 14-minute film explains the basics of setting up your air rifle for whatever type of hunting you want to do. What is also good about this video is the use of instructional materials to illustrate the lesson and make it easy to understand.

The video starts with shooting from different distances and explaining that as you go farther away, you need to compensate for drop offs and wind. The video also shows comparison of the drop-offs between pellet sizes.

The video also teaches you how important it is to zero your air rifle at the right distance to improve accuracy. Once done with the accuracy test and target practicing at different distances, the group heads out into the field to hunt for rabbits, pigeons, and crows.
