I need to get a rifle to go with it.

    He also gave me a 60ís Crossman BB gun and a 1917 Winchester pump/tube 22 that he got from his dad (grandpa) who got it from his brother (my Great Uncle) who passed in 1930 I think from TB. No idea if heís the original owner but Iím at least the 4th in the faimily to own it now.
    Those old pellet pistols are very nice! A gallery gun!? Love little slide .22ís, never had the joy of shooting one, but held many. One day! Enjoy that!

    If I held the dang thing any lighter, I'd drop it! Long kill is 80ft for the munks... have missed closer.... Was unhappy with irons, but that was before changing hold. Has the furnished 3x9 currently. Don't like the wobble at 3x. Don't notice it as much on munks but do on my spinner. Have heard air rifles destroy regular scopes with reversed recoil impulse. Is this still true with springers? I just realized I have an old Burris 2(.5?)x. No great loss if, but think it would last on this gun?

    The pcp from FX looks very interesting for a 22 caliber air puffer

    I wore out more airguns than I can remember as a kid. I currently have a pump Sheridan with a Williams peep and a scoped Remington springer, both in .22 cal. I’ve been thinking I should get myself a nice PCP as a retirement gift when the time comes. Maybe a Marauder, though the Hatsan BullBoss is kinda intriguing?
    What if this whole crusade's a charade?

    We had a squirrel in the attic that would run up and down between the walls. My Dad was afraid it would chew some wiring and burn the house down.
    So we set a Trap after dinner in the basement with some old dry corn cobs. My Dad had a few before and during dinner, so I got to do the shooting, I was like 10.
    We waited until we heard rustling and my Dad hit the light and I popped that Squirrel right between the eyes. The Squirrel proceeded to lay on his side and do 360 pin wheels at like Mach II.
    The Squirrel recovered and ran up the basements steps for the Kitchen. My Mom screamed and our two black labs chased the Squirrel in a race track like circut through our little house three times.
    Finally the screen door slammed open and then closed and it was quiet as we could hear the barking Dogs out in the yard.
    My Mom called for my Dad, but he decided to finish his Beer before coming upstairs.

    Big old German pump action .22 caliber rifle. Heavy as a Tiger Tank.

    That's a big day for a Ten year old in 1971, lemme tell ya.

    I grew up wit airguns. It's what got me hooked into shooting real guns. Daisy then Crossman. As a kid I could knock a time off a fence post across a field.

    Tread lightly here. You can spend more on a good air gun than you can on an AR15. I made the mistake of discovering PCPs after dipping my toe in to the pool as an adult. I tried springers and just wasn't impressed. Then I bought the HW100 in .22.. This is an ENTRY LEVEL PCP, and I can make hits on a 7" paper plate at 100 yards with it. It's as quiet as a suppressed .22 shooting CB caps. Not kidding.



    I have an entry level air compressor to charge it up.

    I may have to upgrade to an FX or Leshiy at some point.

    How is that entry level when there are many less expensive ones for sale. Do you mean they are all a waste of money?
