I also dug out my 55 year old Sheridan 22 air rifle and it still works, Little dab of oil here and there and is still spot on!

Come on Spring - I want to take the kiddies on a hunt!

Air Arms TX 200 (short BBL). Has deep bluing and a walnut stock. Looker and a shooter!

My boy found a crosman g1 extreme, in a lean-to at my Moms, it was left by a horse trainer that used to work for her. The barrel was pretty rusty and the scope stripped, so a couple weeks back we got it cleaned up & sighted in, boy is it fun, accurate and cheap to shoot. My brother had one when we were kids that you had to pump 10 times, pellet guns have come along way since then. I agree it's a good, fun way to start out kids, i started my kids with a Red Ryder bb gun with the stock cut off to fit them. I'm sure his crosman .177 would humanely take out a big Gray Squirrel at close range.

IIRC, I believe it's Benjamin (or Beeman) has an .177 cal. break barrel that shoots up to 1600 fps. Sounds like a .22 rimfire. There are vid's on Youtube where large pigs are being hunted and killed cleanly w/headshots between the eyes from 30yards. DRT! Definitely isn't like it use to be. Fun? I'm sure!

While I do not own a modern air rifle, I do still have a Crosman 760 from about 1974 and a Crosman 766 from about 1976. Both rifles still shoot good and I occasionally shoot them just for fun. Both of these rifles have brought about the demise of many a Rabbit, Squirrel, Chimpmunk, Etc. Great memories from my formative years as a hunter.

I have a Crosman 760 pumpmaster that's worn out and due for a replacement. I have a Beeman Crow Magnum .25 with the Beeman 2-7 scope on it that is a beautiful gun. I've only shot it a little and plan on selling it to acquire a Beeman Marauder. Pellet guns are a fun way to remember your youth.

Also dug up my Crossman. Seim auto22 cal p
CO2 pistol,........that will be fun to shoot

I have a GAMO Hunter. Very accurate, and just the thing for squirrels raiding the bird feeder.

Thought so thanks

I'm still shooting my Sheridan Silver Streak 20 cal. (5mm). I bought it in the early 80's and it still shoots as hard as ever. Accuracy comes and goes and I believe it's because of the pellets not being as good as they were when they came in the little yellow boxes. The design of the pellet has changed from what they used to be.

DannoBoone 07-19-2015 08:04 PM

I have the Benjamin Trail NP XL in .25 cal. It was a huge disappointment at first. Accuracy
was just not there with about 10 different kinds of pellets. Got some of the oil needed
for the piston and everything tightened up. Beginning to get confident enough with it to
do a little rabbit and squirrel hunting with it. It does hit very hard!

I recently purchased Mossberg Patriot Bolt-Action Rifle and a Sam Yang Recluse Air Rifle. Going to hunt for squirrels in the nearby forest.

DirtyGator 07-27-2015 06:31 PM

that recluse is a beast of a air rifle. happy hunting.

Why is there lack of ammo for the 22? I been to several stores, dicks, cabelas, and they all have ammo.

Glad they didn't have the gamo when I was a kid, those bb gun fights would have really hurt:wink:

What a GREAT name - LOL !!!

....................... and still kicking. :happy0001:


Every "Kid" should start with either a BB gun or a pellet gun........................Not a 6X6 bull elk IMHO.

Now that you have had your gammo for a while, what are your thoughts? I bought a gammo big cat 1250 a couple years ago and never really liked it. I don't know a lot about air guns but I could not get it it shoot a good group at all. I read up on the different rests/hold styles but still no luck. I tried several different pellets and have put about 200 through it. Even at 10-15 yards it will shoot only about a 3 inch group and then it will throw one 5-6 inches high, then it might throw one 3-4 inches low. I was hoping to shoot some birds with it but that is out of the question, been collecting dust for a year or two.

I had to fire quite a few before it settled in. If yours has never improved you might clean the barrel out.

Good luck!

MaineRida 10-20-2015 06:46 PM

PDoesn't sound very good, I am close to purchasing one but with that type of accuracy the squirrels would have to laugh themselves to death:eek2:

skiftcky 10-31-2015 07:22 PM

I have quite a few, Gamo Silent cat .177, Swiss Air .177, Benjamin 392 .177, Benjamin Trail NP2 .22, Benjamin Marauder .25 it is my pride and joy... rounding out a little cheap huadong .177
