Airgun / shotgun / rifle ?? 

DOH!!! This is the airgun section 🤔

 

It all depends on how hard it's raining and the distance you are shooting. I've shot in steady quite heavy rain but only up to about 30yds, and just aimed at the normal aim points.

This was after pigeons and squirrels. Light rain, just crack on 😉

Normal aim points. Getting the range and wind right should be the main concerns. If your good enough to be worrying about rain droplets you don't need to be worrying.

Don't see how you could hold for the rain, depending on how big the rain drops are and how heavy it's raining.  

How many raindrops will you hit.

Take some practice shots at likely ranges and see.

Yeah whatever.... 

 

As above,,,, if out in the rain take some practice shots. Airgun ranges aren't affected by the rain, if they are you might as well stay at home 😉

Haha ive never had an issue eithee just as the rain was so hard today id see what you guys thoughts were. Ok so today i took the bantam snipe Hr out. Shooting golf balls on the range at 70m in heavy rain and switching left to right 10 to 15 to 0 mph winds very tricky. Never thoght qbout rain effecting it so just thought id ask... and after shooting an Fx Impact Mk2 today i really want one.

I know in very heavy rain I've seen the shotgun pattern go through it. Not noticed a difference in range or where it hits.
