Whatever you get, I will bet it won’t be the last! You are on your way to getting hooked. Before long, you’ll be shooting that next gun every day and itching for something else!
For the Gamo, get a GRT4G trigger, and invest in a scope that is made for the forward and reverse recoil of the piston. You should do pretty good for about $50. UTG has a few uptions under $100 that will be better than adequate for the Gamo and come with decent rings with a recoil pin. Loctite the scope screws, and regulsrly check the screws in the stock on the Big Cat. If they loosen a little, accuracy goes away.
It might be a cheap beater, but the Big Cat is pretty decent for what it is. Great gun for a pre-teen or teenager, too. Nice and light, not gonna miss it if it gets damaged.
