    That is a far cry from the .177 caliber Benjamin pump of my youth.
    That stock is amazing!
    What is that? FPS? Co2 cartridge or what is the compressed air reservoir?

    And not that I care, but why does an air rifle need a recoil pad?

    I know right, stock is minelli. I also spent much of my youth with a benji/crosman pump. The rifle itself is a daystate huntsman revere. Shoots a 16 gr. .22 caliber pellet at around 875 fps. The tube under the barrel holds 3600 psi of compressed air.

    How do you go about charging the air reservoir to that pressure? An oxygen tank from a torch set?

    Very nice
    I’ve got a Gamo .177 and a Benjamin.22. Both are single break nitrogen and a lot of fun to shoot.

    Cheapest way to get in some trigger time. Get a metal swinging target and I bet you smile every time you hear it ding.

    Nice, always wanted a nicer air rifle, and that one looks exactly like what I'd want. I had a feral cat issue a few years ago, got out my Crosman 73, somewhat obscure .177 CO2. Barely scared them, and did not discourage them from coming back, near daily. For those not familiar with air power, here's a .50 caliber air rifle, 1130 fps. Shoots slugs, shot, or bolts:

    Suitable for almost all game on the North American continent, in the hands of an expert.

    That .50 cal puts out over 400 ft/lbs of energy at the muzzle. Thats impressive. For perspective, the rifle i posted is .22 cal and puts out 30 ft/lbs and will humanely dispatch small game out past 50 yds.

    Growing up in eastern Iowa in the 60's & 70's, everyone with a vegetable garden in our neighborhood kept a pellet gun next to the back door. They were strong enough to permanently shoo rabbits & scavengers away from the garden, and quiet enough to not attract police for discharging a weapon within city limits.
