Default Which Airgun to Buy????????

I cant decide. Ive decided on a .177 breakbarrel design, but there are so many choices.Ive narrowed it to 2 brands. Crosman and Gamo. I either want a Crosman Storm XT, Crosman Phantom, Gamo Varmint Hunter, or a Crosman Sierra Pro. Anyone have any of these? If you do whats the pros and cons. If nobody knows ill probably get the Storm, and go on the Crosman Name. I want it for pest control, and tree rat hunting.

hey my friend has the Gamo varmint hunter. ive shot it a few times- good gun. bright flashlight aswell as a good lazer. i am a big fan of gamo. if i were you id get the varmint hunter. i have the same basic gun just doesnt have the scope w/ light/ laser. i can easy get rabbits birds and tree rats form 40 yards- no joke- with one shot. so go w/ a gamo its a lot nicer airgun

My dad bought one,cool to shoot and cool accessories.Only problem is his trigger is about 12 pound pull! The blackbirds around his house know the sound of the barrel being broke over.

why don't you just buy a .22 or .17? Something rim fire or small center fire?

Buy either German RWS/Weirauch or USA Beeman if you can afford them.The Spanish guns arn't even close in quality.RWS 34 is only $200 and available in .177 or better for hunting .22 and a lifetime warranty.You'll hand them down to your kids some day...............Harold
