I got it watching a program on the Outdoor Channel. It might have been American Rifleman Television. I believe they were in a museum somewhere and were showing what appears to be the actual gun Lewis and Clark used.

I have a couple of airsoft pistols. One shoots BB and pellets, the other just BB's. I just shoot them for fun in the backyard. I've also started my granddaughter on the BB guns.

The daisy model 25 is a great inexpensive option. It may be small for an adult but its tons of fun! Since march i have put close to 10k rounds through it without any issues. The 50 round magazine provides plenty of shooting time and it doesnt take long at all to reload. Its weak at only 350 fps but if you want to spend $35 on amazon and have a cheap, reliable plinker, it will provide you with great fun and practice. It was recently reintroduced and the pump action is great for quick follow up shots. Overall, a great option.

I just bought a Crossman 1322 pump pistol. Fun gun to shoot in my backyard beats shooting wax bullets from my black powder revolvers, This winter i am going to hop it up and probably make it in to a carbine.

I've had several over the years. Started off like everyone with a red ryder. Eventually got a Crosman 10 pump. I got a benjamin sheridan 10 pump in 177. By far my favorite for speed and accuracy. I've shot so many rats and squirrels in my uncle's barn with it. My cousin and I used to set up empty rifle and shotgun shells at varying ranges and shoot off hand at them. Then now and then set up bigger targets at 25-30 yards. All with iron sights of course. I bought a Chinese side lever from Sportsmans guide, was big, heavy and bulky. And completely inaccurate. I got out of shooting for a while and last year bought a Remington Vantage 1200. I'm way more accurate with this one than the last one. Eventually I want to step up to the 22 calibers with a nitro piston.

Dude you should check out EdgunUSA, he has the coolest within videos ever. Even though his air guns look like something out of a space movie they are wicked accurate and he takes arguning to a new level

Ive been shooting a Crosman Nitro Venom in .177 for quit a while. http://www.pyramydair.com/s/m/Crosman_Nitro_Venom_Air_Rifle/2401;jsessionid=043313D98CE56D987D18FA7FAD0E73D4.a pp02#sSpec

Once you've got the barrel broken in shot to shot accuracy is outstanding (artillery hold). Cocking is pretty stout until it breaks in. Buy your pellets on line to find the pellet that your rifle likes.

If I were to continue in air rifles I would move up into the co2 powered offerings

Good Karma

I've got a Daisy 747 spring piston pistol and a Daisy 853 spring piston rifle that I use for indoor target practice at home. They are both entry level bullseye competition air guns but entry level is still more accurate than I am!
