you might check out some of those subsonic bullets that only fire off the primer...

i'll look them up and post a link


and you can't go wrong with a crosman pumpmaster. far too many small animals to count have met their demise to my trusty ol' 10 pump i've had since i was a kid.

You didn't specify what kind of money you're looking to spend. The Gamos are o.k. for plinking rifles, but aren't even close in quality to the German made guns. Take a look at the RWS or Beeman German (not the cheap Spanish made guns being imported by Beeman) made guns. For not much more money than a Gamo, you'll get a lot better made rifle that you can pass down to your children.

ORIGINAL: cma3366a

Since you've got a .22, look op CB caps, and Aguilia super-colibris.
CBs don't feed in a 10/22. I have used them but have to insert each one individually with a pair of needle-nose pliers. But they do fire. I havedispatched some racoons in attics with the CB's.

I would recommend a .22 cal pellet rifle over a .177 as the .22s (even well under 1000+ fps) deliver a real whallop.

I have an old Chinese Pleasure KS-1 .22 cal air rifle (single-break cocking). I doubt it hits more than 500 fps, but not only drops squirrels easily within backyard range it also adds some hofferfesin to the veggies in the garden with easy head shots.

Paid $5 for it. Will post a pic of it maybe later tonight or tomorrow night.

I have a German made RWS and it really shoots well though it was around $300. You can get them for less but I was making more money at the time than I knew what to do with and it is fun to shoot.

The subsonic 22's are quieter than my .177 pellet gun.
