Default 1 gun or 2??

okay finally brought back the broken beeman and got back a okay chunk of change. The delema is that im buying a powerline 880 like the one i already have. thats all fine and good but i also would like to buy a mossberg 22 plinkster but i cant shoot it in my neiborhood cuz we live by a group of cops and a-holes so i can still shoot the bb gun but should i use the money and buy another highpowered airgun and have the power of a 22 but still have the privlage to shoot in the neiborhood instead of buying the two seperate guns?? if anyone has any comments on the mossberg 702 plinkster they would be greatly appreciated.

I wouldn't buy a .22 unless you plan to hunt where it's legal with it. My dad's a cop, and I don't know about where you live, but discharging a firearm in city limits is a hefty fine. I'd go with a pellet rifle.

I don't know what budget you are working with. I would just get 1 .22 pellet rifle. No need in buying a rimfire if you can't use it. If the beeman returned quite a bit look into the new crosman pcp. There is not a more accurate pellet rifle with this power for the money.

I'd go with a good pellet rifle. You can shoot them just about anywhere, pellets are cheap, and squirrels don't know the difference.
