Positional changes can be difficult with the boingers, it's what most call "Hold sensitivity", that's why it's helpful to practice a very relaxed hold, try the gun on card with the standers and kneelers to see if by varying where the leading hand contacts the gun effects the POI. If a certain hand position on the stock matches the same POI as when shooting prone, always adopt that hold. What you might notice is when standing is that your POI will be higher but your stance will be good and you can shoot pretty accurately, just aim lower.
Getting the same sort of accuracy from a spring gun to what you're used to with a PCP can be like learning to shoot all over again. But, don't be fooled, it is possible.
