I own a Gamo Phox Silenci in .22. Limited to 12 ft/lbs for the UK. That being said, I currently love the Hatsan Blitz that the peeps in the US have – what a demon of a weapon.

After you try a 22, you will never go back to an air gun.

My suppressed 22 is stupid quiet! All you hear is the hammer and the impact!

Feinwerkbau 300.
An anniversary present from my wife about 30 years ago. Nothing special velocity or pellet wise. But if I do my part, 5 shots can go into a raggedy hole a little larger than a pellet at 10m. 4 ounce trigger is sure sweet.

All the Best,
Jeff

I don’t have any airguns. Many decades ago I had a Daisy. Now only the Anschutz and a customized 10/22 as well as 1 flintlock and 2 caplock black powder long guns.

But do you think I am?

...

Seriously, though, when I was a kid in the 1980's, I had a Daisy pump BB gun, and it was a ton of fun.

I didn't have to buy CO2 cartridges, either.

I was not mature enough to have a BB gun, though.

I shot my sister in the eye, and tried to shoot some other kids across a busy street.

(I was a stupid kid.)

After you try .50 you ain’t going back, but wait there is some stupid gun laws still in some places of world so air guns are pretty much only guns you can easily get without any permits. And yeah they are fun, subsonic and modern variants really pack a punch.
Guns equal freedom. It ain’t government business to tell us how to live, that is just oppression. Thumbs Up

Rossi Dione. No matter the caliber or model, the Dione is a real hole puncher even when you shoot freehanded. Won’t get any prizes for power, it pales compared to any “magnum” air rifle, but you don’t get a break-barrel for power, do you?

I had a Red Ryder too…when I was a young kid, I shot the neighbour right on her bum when she got out of her car wearing tight jeans from my bedroom window. She jumped around and carried on a treat. Funny but stupid, I was about 10y/o.

My first and this far only air rifle was Diana 25, maybe. Made somewhere around 50’s-70’s and oh boy was that fun back in the days. Shooting things at summer holidays was pretty neat. Would love to get some pcp full auto rifle like Hatsan Blitz, but price is something like 1100€. Kinda expensive and not really feeling like spending that much for a hobby I wouldn’t even do that much.

So far, my Benjamin Armada.
My state limits me to .177cal though.
I have been playing with “slugs” instead of pellets. It hits hard for 177, I give it that.
Trying to get better consistency out of it at 100yds. 50yds its on, 75 is not bad, but at 100 it opens up a lot. It has the reach no problem, just not the accuracy.
Got more different slugs to test when I get time.

Hand pumping one of these is a serious cardio event. Not to mention you need to weigh a fair amount to push the pump down towards the end. My wife could practically do a handstand on it w/o it moving.

I live in a big city. It’s illegal to shoot airguns, but I do anyway.
No way I can shoot 22 without problems.

I have an Annie 2013 in a bench rest stock with a Lilja tube. Lots of fun.
It even likes some of the cheaper Eley – Well most of the time. It’s so frelling windy here, it’s hard to test.
One of these years I’m going to take it to Winters TX and find the magic lot.
All the Best,
Jeff

Webley Hurricane .177 is the only air pistol or rifle I’ve ever had.

I’ll have to actually check to see if it still works okay, as I’ve not even looked at it for several years. Where I’m living, it might scare off the crows, but the raccoons, coyotes, and bears would just get mad at me.

I have some good news.

I thought I shot my sister in the eye, but she says I shot her in her posterior.

She should know--she was the one that got shot.  ;)
