That's right. If it weren't for an airgun they never would have survived.

Gamo hornet is an awesome air rifle. Mine has been through hell in the last few months iv had it. .177 is probably the best Cal to find ammo for.

No doubt .22 can be hard to find and anything bigger is so expensive you're better off molding it yourself.

This thing looks sick. But why does a 177 that only shoots 560fps cost 3,750 bucks?

I have a spring powered Tech Force 41 that is made in China . most accurate pellet rifle I have ever owned , the rifling in it is superb , decent trigger and best of all the barrel does not move in the receiver like most of the daisys , crossmans and a few other brands . I shoot it at 34 ft and shoot 1/2" sticker dots consistantly with it to keep up on practice of staying calm while on the trigger. Best part was I think I paid $29 for this on the Cat tool truck when it came thru town , nice solid beechwood stock and it weighs 7#

TF87
Tech Force TF 41 .177 Caliber (4,5 mm) Combo Scope

Specifications TF41 .177

Velocity 1100fps more like 800-850 fps

Overall Length 47"

Barrel Length 19"

Weight 7.25 lbs

Cocking Effort 43 lbs Every bit of this for sure

Capacity 1 round

Action Underlever

Power Plant Spring Piston


Warranty One (1) Year Limited Warranty

Must be highly accurate. Still insane price. You could get everything you need to shoot a .308 for a while for that price.
