I have had a gamo that was about $200 bucks and shot about 1000 fps with a .177 .........itwas stout and accurate!! I have shot doves as far as 50 yards just to see if I could and it killed the crap out of them...........I shot a rabbit at about 30 yards and heard the bullet bounce off into the woods after passing through it !! And squirrel are an easy one shot kill !!

But it is not much different than a .22 except quieter........I would treat it like it was a .22 in a neighborhood.........they're pretty dang powerful !!!

I would recommend a .22 cal pellet rifle over a .177 as the .22s (even well under 1000+ fps) deliver a real whallop.
I agree. I have owned lots of pellet rifles over the years, lately its been the high end single cock rifles. The .22 caliber air rifles kill much better than the .177's. My last 2 rifles were in .177 both RWS's shootin around a 1000 fps. When I would shoot a bird with it, the bird would fly off like it wasnt even hit only to die in mid air a 100 yds away. the .22 calibers might shoot 800fps but it drops birds immediately. The .22 calibers do pack more of whallup.

ok i have a gamo delta and i kill alot of squerals with it and my friend just bought one aswell we have the same guns and we see who can get the shot off first i live in a residential erea and yeah one shot kills everytime quiet and potent i shot a squeral at 25 yards head shot with it on tuesday there good pellet guns i was thinking about buying anither gun from gamo abd that would br the recon its sweet and yeah i would expect the samr thing from it as my delta i kill rabbits and grouse with it and cats are sometimes a two shot job definately go gamo if your going to buy a pellet gun and pellet guns that are 1000fps still sound like a 22 my gams costed whan i baught it 7 years ago is was 150 and i think there still the same price the only thing that has changed is they make the stock out of different materials now the recon is going to be my next pellet gun if i ever buy a new one but there is no need to my delta is like brand new still and is deadly oh did i mention it kills crows nicely too

yeah buy a gamo if you wana t pelet gun go go for the recon or the delta. the highpower pellet guns still sound like a 22. you dont need a hughpower pelletgun i have the delta with a 3-9x32 on it ant i kill every squeral one shot i pais 160 or there abouts for my gun i want the new recon it looks pretty neat. you can buy cb longs for your 22 ant theyre reallt quiet loke your neighbours won't know mine diddent. gamos are made in spain and are built verry high quality i have had mine for 10 years and it still shoots like the day i baught it. did i mention it works good on rabbits and cats but you need to shoot head shots. my best friend baught tha same gun as me LAST YEAR AND WE GO SQUERLING ALL OF THE TIME. one shot kills and great accuracy. we have to shoot head shots on the squerals because if we diddent we wouldent be useing the guns to their maximum potential like there is no problem with head shote at 20 yeards the furthest shot i have pulled off was like 45 ydson a squeral. get a gamo i cant speak for the reconbut the delta is tried and true.

i started off with a gamo silver shadow......MOST ACURATE GUN I EVER SHOT....must of been a luckky one of the production line i can make pellets touch at 40 yards...that is im using match pellets and a 4-16x56 scope but yea the best gun i ever shot in my life...i actually like it more then most of my rifles b.c it s SOOOOO cheap to shoot...the thing is with the break barrel you have to mke shure its at the smae spot every time if u want exact accuracy, WORD OF ADVICE the new genisis look nice but gamo shadows are the most acurate and the silver is nickle plated ill try to get pics in a bit
