Yep, I have a German-made Beeman R9 in .20 cal. with a 5-15x40 Bushnell 3200 Elite Mil-Dot scope. I took it to show to a shooting buddy,who's experience with BB/pellet guns is limited to his old Daisy Red Rider, and he couldn't believe how accurate and powerful these things are. Right off the bat, I shot ( from a sand-bag rest) at a juice can lying on the ground, and put six-out-of-six shots THROUGH the 5" steel lid.......from 85 yards !!
That same day, I put a pellet straight through an oyster shell from 25 yards ( I never expected that).
A couple years ago, my brother and I put a hole in the base of a stainless steel dog bowl, and hung it from a thin cord, upside down like a bell, and used that as a target. We were shooting from about 75 yards, and to our surprise, the bowl was soon rendered a mangled,perforated piece of junk.
A couple of our stray shots hit an old,junked 70's Chevy pickup truck in a neighbors yard, and we had to pry one pellet out of the body with a pocket knife......and that was from about 120 yards !!!
I would have no qualms about humanely taking small game/vermin with my rifle, and wouldn't be surprised if a head-shot with these spring cockers could be lethal even to humans, within 25 yards.

I'm a big fan....

Couple of RWS Diana's


Don't think they'll really service you well in the self-defense category, but they're excellent for small game hunting - rabbits, squirrels, birds and frogs. Many of the arguments people make on the rimfires vs centerfire threads can also be made for pellets vs rimfires, ie:

- cost of ammunition is a fraction
- given same carry weight/volume, number of rounds is in multiples
- quieter, stealthier
- easier to clean
- "enough" power for the purpose - small game hunting
- great trainer for new shooters, general practice

In a survival situation, it might be a hard decision if I had to choose between my .22 air and rimfire rifles/pistols. Why waist good .22 rimfire rounds when a .22 pellet will put food on the table just as well?

Also, I currently live in a suburban area, and previously in apartments in major cities. I've always had air rifles and pistols and enjoyed shooting them in backyards, basements and even down long hallways. Any "real" bullet requires a trip to a formal range.

There will always be a place in my arsenal reserved for air guns .

The quiet of air guns has always attracted me over any firearm. An air gun won't "ghost" you giving away your position in stressful times.

I'm seriously thinking about buying a new air gun since I swore I'd never handle another firearm when I returned home from S.E.Asia 40+ years ago. That part of my life is over but I need something that will put food on the table or keep an intruder at bay up close. I know an air gun will do that.

So any help , or suggestions, to help me get reacquainted with air guns ,as they are today, will be most welcome.

AIR GUNS ONLY PLEASE!! I DON'T DO FIREARMS ANYMORE SO DON'T SUGGEST THEM PLEASE!!!

Had a nice .22 Benji many years ago, had just got the idea to pick one up the other day and ended up on Crosman's site looking at this: http://www.crosman.com/airguns/pistols/BP2220
Now that's an airgun!

A friend of mine bought a Remington with a 3x9 scope (can't remember brand)

Shoots 1100/1200 FPS or so

It's in the Bass Pro catalog/website for around $150 IIRC. Cabelas also has them

That is one first rate rifle! I was impressed, I might even buy on.

I have an old Benjamin that I use when the need arises, which isn't often anymore.

This Remington is impressive!! To bad it's a break barrel cocking.

From what I've learned thus far a side lever or under lever cocking method is better since the barrel never moves.

Impressive but the prospect of hauling an air pump along is very off putting in a survival situation.

That's good to know! I guess I've never thought about that but makes sense....

I was most impressed with the finish of the rifle. High gloss and the scope wasn't half bad but it wasn't a high dollar one. He lives on a bayou and shoots cotton mouths in the head with it. His shoots off his back porch and average range was 25-30 yards.

Here's an airgun I'd like to get my hands on. Even if it is a reproduction.

Are you thinking of the Crosman 1377 with shoulder stock? Great plinker, kid starter, and small game annoyer. I'm very happy with mine, and there's a whole industry built around modding them. Lots of options. The only problem I've ever had was with stock the rear sight, but that was replaced with an upgrade from my junk (oh, sorry; "parts") drawer from a broken B3.

Just purchased a Benjamin NPXL yesterday. Ain't had a chance to wring it out yet. Rated at 1500 fps with alloy pellets. It is considerably louder than I had expected.

I owed a HW-77, Underlever .22 Cal with an '' Ox-in-a-Box '' spring. German made, great build quality. It was very light and a dream to shoot. It was right on the UK legal limit.
Nice air-weapon not a toy. Unfortunatly I'm not much of a shot even with lot's of practice. I didn't want to wound something with my poor-marksmanship so I sold the gun and gave up shooting.
