I do find myself shooting my springers a lot less since I got into PCPs. I use 3300 psi scuba tanks to fill (I’m too ‘value conscious’ to cough up the bucks for a CF tank) and my guns are tuned for lower fill pressure and don’t make that much power as a result. If I remember correctly my .25 Marauder is doing around 35 ft. lbs. and my .22 is doing just over 20 ft. lbs. The gun that has put my springer in the drawer is a nifty little CZ s200, it’s super accurate and very light and short which makes carrying it a breeze! Having said all that, shooting a springer will teach you a lot about follow through and will definitely make you a better shooter IMO.
