Welcome! Lots to learn here, and lots of insentives on how to spend your money. 

For the money, I don’t think there is a better type of gun than a Springer to hone in your shooting skills (imo) Any springer, but, I, like many before me have learned the hard way, might as well get a good quality one. 

As for PCPs. There are many other expenses involved, other than just the gun. So, do your homework. How are you going to fill it? Compressor? Tanks? Etc. 

Are there dealers near you? Can you fix the gun yourself? Maybe a used Edgun will suit you. I hear they are easy to work on and should be great hunting rigs. Crowns and Impacts are great guns, but are not for everyone. They tend to have lots of points of potential failure from what I have read. Be ready to be shipping them for service if you don’t know what you are doing. 

Sorry for rambling on. Hope some of this helps. Use the search function, This has been asked many other times, including myself.
