To make up for this I have made an air rifle range in my back yard. Air rifles have come a long way in the past few years. I have two high performance air guns. The one I am currently using is the Benjamin Sheridan Trail Np in 22 caliber. It is an amazing rifle.

In Virginia it is legal to shoot an air gun on your property as long as you make a reasonable effort to keep the pellet from crossing property lines. I made a silent pellet trap that works great.

The only challenge is finding time to do it. My wife works nights. I keep the girls (a 2yo and 8mo) from 5 till bed time. Then there is the house to clean and the dishes to wash, plus other household duties. Everyone has this problem. Priorities and life get in the way of what we want to do. I was planning to shoot some tonight, but a thunderstorm rolled in. Oh well, some practice is better than no practice.
