When I was young, I spent a lot of trigger time with my pellet gun. It engrained a lot of basic habits (mostly good).
I know exactly what you mean about the pellets being affected by wind. I spent so much time with that rifle that I could visualize the path of the pellet.
The best shot I ever took (and probably ever will take) was not long, about 20 yards off hand through a 90 degree cross wind that was howling. I was shooting at a red winged black bird. I confidently aimed at absolutely nothing 6 inches to the right of the bird and hit it square.

Shooting pellet guns is still great fun.
