Air Rifle Suggestions

I have had a blast the last couple of days shooting my old BB gun off the my new back porch. My BB gun leaks though and won't hold pressure longer than a couple of minutes (it's 20 years old or better). What are your recommendations for a new rifle? I want one that is reasonably accurate and powerful.

Re: Air Rifles

I have a scoped Gamo Big Cat. Bought it from Sportsman’s Guide, I think, with which I wage war on local varmints of one kind or another. It’s very satisfactory and really snaps the pellet down range...a much sharper crack than you’d expect.

It’s my opinion that the secret (big secret!!) to successful air gun usage are the pellets you use. Stay away from the garden variety lead .177 pellets and look toward Gamo PBA Raptor or Armor .177 cal. Pellets. Gamo says 1200fps with those PBA’s.

As an aside, I have a pair of CO2 pellet pistols that I use in the shop in lieu of dry fire practice. It’s more fun that way.
