    Daisys are ok but word of advice they are hard to cock and the scope mounts will mess up. But they are powerful guns

    Brother Richard;
    I have a scoped RWS 48 that I use for the very same thing! :cool2:
    Being a "Magnum" AG, I also use it for Squirrel Hunting when season comes in too.
    When I do my part, this AG/Air Gun will do a 1/4" or better at 25 yds!:smile2:
    While not as powerful as a .22LR if I put the shot where it is supposed to go, it gets the job done in fine fashion and without that "crack!" that comes with the .22LR:smile2:
    And, it's a One Stroke Side Cock so it maintains the accuracy over a "Barrel Cocker" and is much easier to "pump" that those that require up to eight pumps for full power!!
    Good Luck and if you can, please keep me informed as to how it works out for ya?
    Finally, Raven and I wish YOU and Yours a "Happy and a SAFE Holiday Season however you all choose to celebrate the season. :smile2:
    Fraternally and Sincerely,
    Coyote1 & Raven

    I'm seriously considering getting a bb/pellet gun for my 7 year old twin boys for Christmas. Of course daddy will be playing with it too. :tounge_out: and for that reason I want something with some power, but since it's for my boys I don't want the hottest thing out there. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Eric

    Just about all of the powerful guns are big and heavy. Over 40 inches long and 6+lbs. May be be to heavy for them? Maybe not? good luck

    a little update on the daisy guys after 250 pellets and a cleaning it is shooting a consistant 7/8 to 1 1/4 groups with about as many shots as i care to shoot at the moment im out of ammo but i have a target with a 1x1 1/2 inch hole that is about 1inch low and 3/4 inch right of the bull so i am giong to re zero and when i can get em all home I'll give you another update and maybe a pic

    i had a daisy 1000s and the only thing bad with it is the scope mounts. i was shooting the crosman round nosed hollowpoint pellets.
    that was the only break barrel air rifle i ever shot at the time, and i was seriously impressed. i killed several jackrabbits and cottontails with it, and a lot of pigeons and grackles. you get a little sore on one side after cocking it so many times, but hell it's worth it!
