    Hey everyone! 

          I've been using airguns for a little over a year now and I want some input for a decision. I want to buy a .25 gun. Are there any break barrels in .25 that can really keep up with the power of PCP without sacrifing accuracy? I want a gun that can kill small pigs, and large rodents more easily than my proweler . I   will want the gun I buy to be a gun I keep for quite a while, so are there any  break barrels in .25 that hold up better than others? I'll take all the suggestions I can get! Thanks!

    I don't think there are any .25 break barrels that have the power or the accuracy as a .25 pcp to ethically kill a pig but I could be wrong. Keith Warren has a video shooting a small pig with a break barrel but I would take everything that guy says with a grain of salt. He's clearly pushing a product and owned by the company.

    Nope; time to reassess priorities/requisites.

    Check this out.  It's very powerful at air gun ranges, and might have enough of what you need to avoid going to pcp and all it's associated equipment.  This is a comprehensive write-up by a professional airgunner.

    Here's another good article about high power spring air guns:

    Not a break barrel but I like to suggest the fx impact. One or my most powerful and most accurate airgun I own. Yeah it's $2000 but it's worth it. It will take down a pig and up to a deer. Even taken down an elephant with a head shot if you wanted to. Well maybe not a elephant but pigs and deer no problem.
