Actually I have a .22 Marauder and fill it with a FX 4 stage pump. It takes a few minutes and ~100 pumps to top it up. No big deal really. I then get 30 consistent shots. Fyi, topping up is from ~1800 to 3000 psi.

Air rifles are very quiet, pellets are fairly cheap and can be extremely accurate. This makes them perfect for backyard plinking or pesting. They are also less likely to scare away other game when hunting.
