OK, so assuming I want to keep it simple and go with a spring (but still thinking about PCP though…still need to verify where I could fill a tank)

1) Knowing I'm planning to shoot at an outdoor range – mainly 25 yards but also 50 yards – what caliber is best: .177 or .22?

2) Remember, no hunting

3) I have some rifles in mind: Benjamin Trail XL 1500 or 1100 (more expensive but come with a scope – I like the look), Gamo Swarm Maxxim (less expensive), Hatsan 95 (even cheaper), Diana/RWS 34 (different options in terms of price – but only .177 apparently)

What would be a good pick for what I want to do? Any other great options I may have missed?

 

Thanks
