I have been watching a few videos and I have to say I am interested. Has anyone jumped in? What did you think?

I did, got a this from Pyramid Air, you definitely get what you pay for. I started with a Nitro Piston Crossman (Jim Shockey) model. It was nice but this Beeman's trigger is AWESOME and its VERY accurate out to 50 yards. Great turtle killer.

I really want one of the pre-charged pneumatic rifles in either .22 or 25 caliber. Something like the cometa lynz v10. Up to 50 shots in a single charge and a average of 850fps with a 21 grain pellet. 1k is a lot for a air rifle but they are sure bad [censored].

Yep, their 350 magnum is first rate. Look at Pyramid Air. I bought their combo which they mounted the scope and sighted it in. They are First Class service company and have a huge inventory.

My Nitro Piston was a .22 cal, my Beeman is .177. No real reasoning. If you want to shoot small game, the .22 hits harder.

Don't fall for the "steel" raptor type pellets going 2000fps, not good on a fine air rifle's lands. Also buy a "sampler" box of pellets and read the reviews. They are like .22 rimfire rifles, usually liking a couple brands, weights, better than others.

THEY ARE CHEAP PRACTICE and FUN!!! rifle

I'm guessing you are talking about big bore air rifles for large game. A friend was talking about them recently and he plans to get one. They can be pricey at around $1200 for a good one and price goes up from there. I think New York just started allowing them for deer hunting.

I am working on an indoor airgun range here, getting a few enthusiasts organized to see if the club will put the bucks together for it.

The city has a building that is used for gem and mineral shows, gun shows etc.. It may be that we can use that from time to time.

I would gladly invest in a quality air match rifle if there was a good place to shoot it.

Mean-while, I have a lot of fun with a Gamo .177 air rifle that I fixed up with a Williams Guide rear sight.

I have a Gamo Big Cat and while its no RWS or a high-end air gun, its certainly no toy. I like shoot coins with it because it will mangle some pennies

I have fairly expensive RWS and Beeman airrifles. Both are absolute tack drivers, and a blast to shoot.

I wouldn't call my air rifle high end, but it's a nice one. I shoot a .25 cal chinese breakbarrel called an XS28M, came from a shop in Iowa tuned by a man named Mike Melick. It is very accurate, and for an air rifle, very very powerful. It will punch right through the armor of an armadillo, and kill it with a shot through the body.

Those PCP guns like the Marauder are a lot more powerful and accurate than mine.

They are not "just pellet guns". They are rifles, and you have to treat them with the same respect as the powder burning variety.

I have one, and it's great. I tried a Gamo and ended up giving it away. Doesn't compare to the RWS.

Yep, you get what you pay for on these.

I started with the Crossman Nitro piston from Academy. Like the Gammo a great starter rifle, get one, then you can see if you like shooting air rifles. If the bug bites, then scratch it with a higher dollar one. rock_on

.

I have a couple of the gamo hunter models and they are ok. The pneumatic ones look really cool and quiet. My gamo is loud enough that my .22 shooting subs suppressed is quieter than it is.
