    If you want to stick with a spring gun a RWS 54 in .22 would be the ticket. Powerful, about 23 ft pounds from memory. The gun rides on rails to absorb reverse shock so gun is extremely accurate for a springer.

    The best tool would be a . 25 PCP more power and heaver pellets carry more power at distance plus you can’t kill them dead enough when they are eating your house up. With .25 less than perfect shots will still humanely take them out. But there is added cost and problems with PCP guns. 

    agreed^^^

    Nah no desire to shoot springers anymore,  that said I've never had a good one.

    So sad for you.

    Yes +1 😊

    That’s what happens when you purchase your spring powered airgun at Walmart

    I'm not saying there are NOT other quality air rifles…but I believe German and British are the best quality air guns available. I have a Beeman  and an RWS  I purchased in the late 1980's I still shoot regularly. each has been rebuilt only once thru the years.

    I wanted to know how to properly place my cheek on the stock for sight alignment.

    The short answer is "exactly the same way every time".  The placement of your eye behind the sight is critically important to maintaining the same point of impact every time.  During my service years my stock weld involved touching the tip of my nose to the charging handle on my M16.   A good optic will minimize this problem BUT no optic can eliminate it.  So you have to do the same thing with an optic.  Stock weld is crucially important to shooting small groups, even on a bench.

    0ld spook is correct…US Army taught me the same.

    a serial number of ANYTHING, a license plate number, your SSN, may be used to trace back to persons ID and location. contrary to law and popular belief, is not really PRIVATE.

    my original SS card had "Not to be used for ID" stamped on it…they no longer have that stamping.

    why do you think firearms are serialized?

    do you have serial numbers of your airguns and/or firearms recorded in case of loss or theft? how else would you be able to prove they're yours?

    start with a QUALITY name brand and work from there.

    most of my rifles show a preference for H&N, JSB or Crosman

    i currently own a 54 in 22 and the single biggest complaint I have about it is it IS very difficult to keep scopes on them.

    if you are able, and so inclined, a Williams rear peep does work very well on the 54.

    Komifornia being as it is, you have a valid question.  While powder burners are currently regulated with background check and waiting period plus no lead for hunting purposes), air guns are not a part of those regulations as they are NOT firearms.  That said, it will only be a matter of time before Sacramento figure it out and creates regulations for air guns.  Especially since other states allow big game hunting.  That will be the demise of air guns flying under the radar as it were.

    It's always good to ask the question, knowledge is a good thing.  Now go buy yourself an air gun and have a LOT of fun.

    I have a gen I marauder in 25 I purchased new. I have made a few 'mods' to it; it's very accurate and powerful as well as reliable…👍
