    If you type in pellet guns in the search box you will be suprised at the results.I believe Coyote is the resident guru!!:lol: Those are some sweet ones ya got.You have your own chrono or they do it at the local range?

    Thats a nice lineup there I recently started shooting pellet rifles again,Especially with the new adult size and more powerfull models availible now. I have a Daisy 1000 S and am going to buy a Gamo in the future.

    I bought a RWS 17 caliber years ago to pop squirrels robbing my bird feeder. It does 1000 feet per second if I remeber correctly. It stops a squirrel in its tracks and is very accurate. I scoped it and its about the same as shooting a good 22 rifle only silent and cheap ammo.

    I have a older crossman 766 and a pistol like yours too. I shoot the crows that wake me up in the morning. I live in town and these are greta and silent when shooting out the bathroom window..

    I bought my son one for Christmas it is a Gamo I love shooting it as much as he does. At 15 yards it can put 3 holes touching.

    very nice looking guns!!! love that talon.i have a few cheap ones like a crossman 766 and an old break action. but i am thinking about getting a bam x-50 pcp powerd gun in .22 for rabbit and squirrel hunting. i would love to have a theoben rapid s-type in .22 caliber but i dont think thats going to happen anytime soon.lol. happy hunting and be safe.

    btw-i was down in the back yesterday with my 766 and saw a very sick looking cottentail rabbit about 20yrds out,so i aimed for the neck and THWAP!!! he droped like a rock.first rabbit i ever took down with that gun.i think i did him a favor.

    got a gamo 1000 last year. happy with the gun, got it to kill snakes while fishin. kills snakes ok, but havent found the right pellet yet for killin squirrels. Those lil 177 pellets disentergrate and dont do much damage to em. I noticed the other night that my front sight is gone. I think its interchangeable, so hopefully I can find one to put on it, as I like open sights n dont use a scope. nothing compares to the benjamin 22 caliber I had as a kid! used ta pump it up 45 times n kill rabbits n armadillos.

    had a 1377 pistol when i was a kid, it was my 'killin gun', haha. got a daisy 1000s and was pretty impressed with its power.
    for squirrels try those premier round nosed hollowpoint pellets. they do pretty good on them.

    Got started back on airguns a year ago and now have at least 20 or better.
    Got three grandkids and they all love to shoot. Have a very large fenced yard so can step outside and shoot away. I use 22 cal for the tree rats, either pump like the Benj or co2 guns. Have springers, co2 and pump type airguns and enjoy them all. Anybody really interested in them can go to yellowforum.com and find out anything they want.

    I got a beeman 1000fps for christmas from my dad this year. I'm 37 and remember getting my first bb gun from DAD!

    I love it. Me and Ersel get together and shoot and both of ours will make clover leafs at 10 yards.
