Reply To: Same old newbie question: What to buy?
Keeping small folks in mind, maybe consider the Crosman 1720T w/shoulder stock. LW barrel, decent trigger, outstanding support, EASY to pump , power can be adjusted up to 12fpe which will hunt/target shoot out to 50 yards no problem.
“best value, accuracy, and robust build, and suppressed?” would be a matter of opinion but rapid air weapons fit’s the description though maybe over you budget.
Can you het to a match and test a few rifles out?
