    Goodtogo, 
    Glad you got a good one, others have been posting similar good results. Even people like myself and Guod who wern’t so lucky are still recommending this rifle.
    $900 for a tank, really! I would check around, you can get a much better deal form other dealers. AOA is just under $600 and Airhog is just over $600.

    Air Arms 16 grain pellets for .22. I have a Marauder, Talon SS, and Hatsan Gladius and they all shoot best with these pellets.

    “NMshooter”Be aware that it is the sponsors that help make this forum work. There is a reason for that…… to promote their products.  If there is a great deal somewhere by all means post your findings but understand it could be pulled down if it is from a direct competitor of the sponsors. Some may have a problem with this but it IS business and we need to understand the sponsors have a monitary stake it this and we should be sensitive to  that. When you look on e-bay, you will find that Pyramid Air and Airgun Depot will still have the best prices for the Marauder. They also offer refurbished rifles at a discounted rate. Many of the top rifles brands are only sold new from specific dealers. So, you may not find a wide variation with price across the industry. Several months ago Cabelas offered a great deal for the Marauder.

    
Certainly respectful of who pays the bills, that’s exactly why I asked the question.  I’m new here but I’ve been around internet forums since before forums (usenet days).  The last thing I want to do is come in here and break a bunch of rules.  In that sense I havent done my homework.  I simply found the most active forum I could easily come across and joined.  As I age here I will become familiar with who’s who.  

    So with that said Pyramid is the retailer I’m looking at buying from and while am not always looking for the cheapest price.  I did find their  bundle to be attractive and with the added 75$ off the Marauder using a current promo code made it that much more digestable.  

    I do happen to have a Cabelas local to me as well.

    I really appreciate everyone’s comments and advice.  I’m on the fence again on what to do….  I’m the kind of person that can get a bad case of analysis paralysis and I thought I’d made a decision and was going to do this.  

    A blessing in disguise is that I realized that I am taking a week long vacation with the family and I will now postpone this decision for about 8 days.  I would hate to order something and have it sitting on the porch while I am gone and that alone would detract from my vacation.

    This will give me some time to digest some more material and possibly consider some other options.  I realize I have destroyed my own thread and drug it off track with my ramblings.  Another poor form on the internet. 

    Some of the Airforce offerings caught my eye as being non-conventional but very attractive looking rifles.  So I shall go soak my head in a bucket and continue reading.

    This sport has a way on sneaking up on your wallet. the air tank is an enabler. Like once you have the tank that larger air capacity gun with the higher fill now becomes an option. You run into sales or bargains and score on an extra scope. Taking a long trek in the woods with a gun with a 30 shot capacity (Seen the movie Birds) you never know? so guppy tank or a regulated gun giving you 60 to 70 shots. If your sole intentions is just plinking and your budget is limited look at the Disco or Maximus. There are many options available and 2000 psi is a breeze to hand pump and the scuba tank now is a viable option. Don’t look at money spent as squandering your grand kids inheritance it’s brought them closer to a couple of my friends. I’ve had better luck with refurbs and would not shy away from a used gun from an established member.

    rustysocket,
    I personally took over 4 months before I “pulled the trigger” on a pcp. There really is a lot to digest at first. I actually enjoyed the whole process. I literally was on every vendors site every night. I would watch U-tube reviews to wee hours of the night. You want to “make sure” you make the right decision. You will not make a bad decision and in the end you will have to just jump in. I still like to compare all the differences from rifle to rifle. Enjoy the process and take your time. I eventually bought 2 rifles (one for my son), a .22 Marauder and a .22 Cricket Carbine. I have been happy with both purchases and have added a few more PCP’s since I have started. 
    Best of Luck,

    Doc
