    I have an Indian made Air Rifle.

    No licence required.

    My Air Rifle is not an expensive one.

    The problem with most Indian air rifle that I saw before buying, is that there is no zeroing facility.

    I think because scopes for air guns need to withstand "reverse recoil" they are made differently from other types.

    You are aiming wrong. Always keep your sight up. You are keeping it on target and undershooting. A good fighter pilot always keeps it on top is very old saying. Next time keep your sight aiming at the top of the bulls eye and you will hit it bang in center.

    If you have membership of your local rifle association and have taken part in a few competitions, then you can import 0.22 calibre rifles. Look up indiansforguns.com

    You would be best of buying 2nd hand imported air gun, ofb makes a few gas powered ones but they arent great.

    Accessories depend on the make.

    Is it from 10m? Nice grouping!

    I used to score 76-80 in 10 shots from 10m with an OFB .117 break barrel.

    How much did it cost?

    The ones in the outer circle are from the pistol.

    I took up the rifle after many years.

    The hell is a palm rest ?

    @Kunal Biswas,

    How does it feel switching over from INSAS to Air-Rifle?
