    I always had a Benjamin pump as a kid and have shot one Gamo without being overly impressed. We are looking at buying an airgun for small farm varmint control and we’re looking at the Gamo whisper fusion and a Benjamin Titan or trail. Our main concern is accuracy over quietness and speed. Do y’all have any advice? We want to stay at or under $200

    I’m personally not a fan of the Benjamin break barrels, though there are many on this site who love them. If you can stretch just a bit my vote would be the RWS 34-it’s a proven quality gun with lots of parts available if you decide to modify later on. Here’s a good price from Amazon-all the online airgun stores pretty much will offer the RWS 34.

    34, 22 cal for pests. The small difference will be ” Money well spent”.

    I’d go with any Benjamin NP2 … easy to cock, plenty of power and their barrels are fairly decent. With the NP2 instead of spring you can leave it cocked all day which will often trump accuracy if you need to shoot “right now.”

No offense Dan, but leaving a springer cocked for a few hours on a hunt won’t damage the mainspring and cause a significant loss of velocity. There have been numerous experiments on this subject and the consensus is ‘don’t worry about it!’

    Hi All
    If your going to use open sights get a rifle with a durable steele front and rear sight.
    the Crossman sights are cheap plastic ,broke the front sight first time out !!!
    Fortunately I use a scope so it didn’t matter.
