    Now... that is one heck of an airgun! So... I've been thinking of getting a kickA$$ airgun. School me on the baddest ones out there, and why you chose this one particular model? Thanks!

    I had a Sheridan Silver Streak when I was a kid. And this thread makes me want one again.

    I had Crossman 760 in my youth that was stolen when someone broke into my parents’ cabin in NH. I bought one as an adult to deal with a squirrel problem but it wasn’t as well made and didn’t last. A friend in college had a Beeman pistol, single break .177 caliber that was lots of fun. I could see getting back into it.

    We still had a 1930’s Buck Jones pump action that was my Dad’s when I was a kid. Complete with the compass and a toothpick sundial. I wish I knew where it went.

    Lots to choose from these days. I chose this one because of the quality of build, traditional looks, lighter weight, and accuracy. They have been producing variations of this model since the late 80's. Pretty much all the precharged guns today stem from its lineage in some way. The other brand I was looking at is FX airguns. Very nice as well, very tunable and they make modular ones now where you can change things like the barrel liner to shoot slugs and arrows. The one I got is pretty much ready to go out of the box, that was a plus as well. Tuning them can be fun, but you need to have plenty of air on hand. The benjamin marauder is a decent entry level rifle as well.

    Thanks!!! You've got me onto my next research project! Can you repressurize the bottles yourself via a footpump or? I'm thinking of being out in the field etc. and running out of air. How does one avoid that?

    They do make hand pumps that fill up to 3000 psi, some small capacity guns you can get away with them but its not ideal. Its a workout for one and it has the potential to introduce moisture into the gun. Its a viable option for some. This gun has a higher working pressure so the option is a special compressor or air tank. I have an scba type tank that holds 4500 psi. Its expensive to get into.

    Being the man my mom, aunts and grandmothers wanted me to be, not sure what is micro-agressive about air rifles, weapons, varmit killing, or Ralphie? And, I'll be glad to fix you a soy latte as you clean my freshly caught catfish.

    I own a Weihrauch HW30S in .177 cal.
    It lives at my nephew's ranch, about twenty miles from my apt.
    I have no place to shoot at my apartments.
    We have great fun shooting, both the HW30S and my 58 year old Ruger 10/22 I got for my birthday when I turned twelve.

    I don't know about that model but most air rifles do not kick toward the shooter, but away from them.

    The new ones are about $25 at Walmart. Much crappier build quality than the originals, but I don’t doubt that they hold 1000 shots. I loaded mine about 4 years ago when I got it and it’s had infinite ammo ever since...

    You can’t possibly have more fun for $25- and I don’t care what her name is.
