I like my simple daisy pump up rifle for small pests. I use pointed pellets.

I really want to get a Drozd fully auto bb machine pistol though.

I prefer the higher quality airguns. I currently have a Finewerkbau 124 Deluxe, Beeman R9 in .177 and a RWS 52 in .22.

RWS .177 at roughly 1,000'/sec.....it's really hard on the local pests.

For you guys quoting velocity, if you haven't chronographed your rifles, you're in for a shock. The vast majority won't get anywhere near the factory quoated velocities. Airgun companies tend to find the lightest pellet they can get for velocity testing. Of course some companies just tend to "estimate" high!

I've chrono'ed my rifles along with some friends' with hunting weight pellets and don't get anywhere near the factory quoated velocities.
