Reply To: Needing suggestions on new rifle.
Deciding on an air rifle can be a slippery slope. If you are going to spend three hundred dollars why not get a PCP? Because you then need a means of filling the thing, add another one hundred fifty plus. You can get a good gun for less money. I just got a Crosman Phantom .22 for $75. The rear sight is a piece of crap but I fixed it and now it is a tack driver. Cheap but accurate. I would not recommend the gun as a first gun, especially to someone with a nice three bill budget. My advise; take some time to think about it then buy a Hatsan 95 Vortex QE in .25. Why do I recommend that gun? Because that is what I want. That and I hear the thud the .25 makes is unparalleled! Good luck.
