    Hi,
    I posted a bit ago but I see I put it under personal  so I will just give the facts and try again.
    New to this sport I am a rimfire person but find I am interested in the air rifles also.  Just wondering what would be a good start for a air rifle.

    I would like to target shoot along with shooting for the enjoyment it gives and not blood.
    I think something in the 177 steel spring rifle and money wise up to maybe $450.00 w/ or w/o a scope.

    Thank You,
    SilverHawkII

    Check out the HW30, type it in the search box and hit go. 

    Here is a review on the Urban model, just a bit more than what you are aiming for, but probably worth it. Or look for used one.

    I came back to airguns as an adult and after learning small bore, shot gun, archery, center fire and muzzleloader.  Airguns do not share much skill set with the other disciplines.  Be ready to accept that airguns will require a different approach.

    Have fun.

    May want to look at the Diana/RWS model 34. Been around for a long time and will continue to be an accurate well made bargain with a Great trigger. Hope this helps You.

    Personally if I were going to opt for a springer it would be the fixed barrel HW 97 pr the equivalent Walther model. It is a rifle you will not have to upgrade in the future.

    Diana 34 is a very good starter.  Accurate and effective for a good price.  HW30 is a primo target Springer.  And if you are further on budget the XS25 from flying dragon w a full tune from mike many consider to rival the 34.

    happy hunting brother

    I know the OP was for a break barrel, but for your price range you could get into a PCP. Crosman/Benjamin have a few great options The Discovery or Fortatude,and Gamo has the Urban. Oh and the Diana Stormrider, Beamen QB Chief,and I think I might be forgetting few. You can find a hand pump on the low end 80-130 or so so a 300ish riffle and a 100ish pump still puts you in that 450 range.

    If just wanting to target shoot and plink around at reasonably close range, the Air Arms T200 or Champions Choice T200 are excellent.  Not up there with the high end guns, but pretty good trigger and accuracy.  We use them for our 10-meter air rifle matches at the club, a lot of guys still use the Daisy 853.  Either are great for the starting out.  Just don’t expect much power.  Good for targets though.

    I would suggest a HW from Krale in the Netherlands.
