    I think this will be interesting. I only have the Bobcat in .22 with a Sidewinder 30 6x24x56 so I don’t have a lot to go by but I love it. It shoot good, good shot count. I’m also getting the Wildcat in .25 so we will see if I like this gun too. I think I will. Putting a Air max 30 6x24x50 on it.

    hhmmm, it is tough to say which “one” – because there are many, that would fit in different categories, that I like ‘most’ 😉

    This one would be a contender – was my first .30 build, and it was a shooter, for sure! Just really liked the way the whole thing turned out, and enjoyed every single shot I took with it!

    Edit: Because there are other guns that really deserve mention – I love, let me say that again, LOVE the FX Cyclone/Super Swift action(s) – have sold a few that I regret parting with. There was a sweet R7 that I tuned and put a full sized target stock on that I would enjoy having back. A few R9’s in various states of tune, and stock configurations that I would have no trouble spending years with – especially one in .20 that I put a Venom tune kit in. What an awesome shooting gun that was. An Omictin FWB P70 is out there somewhere just waiting for me to give it a home, forever… I am sure that I could go on. Oh, and I have the new FX Impact on my birthday wish list!

    Daystate Huntsman Classic .22 fac, because it looks like a traditional rifle, the handling characteristics are awesome and the gun just fits me like a glove.

    My first high end AG was a FX400 purchased almost 4 years ago. It is the last AG I would sell. Since then I have also purchased an Airwolf,  Cricket, and Marauder in 25, another Cricket in 22 and a Steyr LG110 in 177. For all around use the repeatable three position power adjuster on the FX400 makes it an all around gun. I purchased my FX400 before the introduction of the Bobcat which has the same 3 stage power adjuster.

    I really like my cheap Crosman Titan nitro piston in.22. I have quite a few airguns but none are as simple and easy to shoot as that break barrel. It has plenty of power for critters and pests and is plenty accurate to boot. It is not my most accurate, not my most powerful, not the lightest, but my favorite overall. Nice balance of features and ease of use.

    I would have to say the gun that I truly fell in love with would be my Crosman 760. I would love to see a bullet proof 760 made again. I would pay the asking price. A robust 760 with wood and that simple feed and cock. Pump 6-10 times. It would sell. Think about it Crosman…in .22  .Pre-order with a deposit

    Hard decision , but I’ll have to say my .25 Cricket Rifle. Why?….Because it is the most accurate of my collection so far 😉
    FX 400 and AA S500 tied for second 😉

    The gun I like the most is the Daisy 840 plus.  Bought from Shopko in 1982.  I begged and begged, but did not see it under the tree on Christmas morning.  It was hidden behind the piano, so my mom would not see it (I know this by the look on her face when it was revealed).  I shot more starlings and house sparrows (and grasshoppers) with that 340 fps bb-gun than I will ever shoot with any gun ever again.  I went through a carton of bbs every week and had a bicep on my left arm that was 1-inch larger than my right.  When the metal linkage on the pump arm broke, I spent 6 months pumping the gun with a pair of pliers.  It wasn’t until a fall from the hay loft shattered the stock and bent the barrel I conceded defeat.

    Every airgun I have purchased since that gun has been an attempt to get that feeling back.  Some have gotten me very close.  But, none have fully succeeded, and I doubt any ever will.

    edit:  But, if that seems like a cop-out.  I will tell you that the gun I like most is always the one I am obsessing over the most.  And, right now, that gun is an FX Royale 400 – rigged for off-hand and speed silhouette competition.

    I love the stories of the gun of our childhood that got most of us in the shooting sports. For me it was the 760 10 pump Crossman.  I learn how to hunt with one. Started at 8 years old. Move on to a 410 bolt action shotgun then I was 10 hunting rabbits with dogs here in Maine. Just got back into air guns 2 years ago.

    I have owned many airguns over the years: Air Arms, BSA, Benjamins, Walthers, 2 USFTs, etc.  Always have loved my Rapids in .20, .22 and .25. All 3 have always kept their POI even if not used for months. Drop dead reliable in the field. Although I have to say I really enjoy my .25 Cricket bullpup and .25 FX Verminator! Starting to really warm up to the bull pup concept.

    ” I went through a carton of bbs every week and had a bicep on my left arm that was 1-inch larger than my right”!

    HA! I had a Sheridan .20 pump when I was kid… I can relate to a much bigger arm from all that pumping!! Lol

    .25 Swift Rapid by Ernie Olson. Full custom… aint nothing “stock” on this beauty. Quiet, reliable, tunable, and I never get tired of admiring its uniqueness.
