I’m in my 70’s and about to have cardiac bypass surgery.
Break-barrels, etc. are out for me, at least for a long while, so I’ve decided to go with a couple of CO2 rifles: an Umarex Fusion .177 and a Hammerli 850 AirMagnum .22. I’ll be using the Fusion for target shooting in my back yard and the AirMagnum for target shooting at the range and hunting small game. I’m using the 4 x 32 scope that came with the Fusion; I found that it’s adequate for my needs. Initially I’ll be using the factory metal sights on the AirMagnum, but I’m planning to add a 4 x 32 MilDot scope in the near future. I’ll also be adding a (taped) compensator if I decide to shoot it it at home.
I found that the 88 gm CO2 cylinders aren’t stocked by any of the local stores so I also ordered the 12 gm adapter so I will never be without propellant.
I’m looking forward to shooting these rifles a lot before my surgery and after the recovery period.
