Not more than a rifle, and $5 gets you 250 pellets, that are actually in stock. I'm considering a .177 one.
I've heard fire stations have compressors that can refill tanks to 3000 psi. Know any firemen?
Dive shops can fill the tanks to that pressure. Paint ball shops could probably do fills too. Get a dive tank to do field refills. There are also hand pumps available for around $200. The fire stations refill their air tanks so they should have compressors.

I was taught to respect my elders but they are getting harder to find.
I have several pellet guns, rifle and pistol, that I shoot all the time. They are great practice guns, accurate and at the proper range, very deadly. A good airgun should be part of your survival gear. I think I'll go outside and shoot some...see ya.
I looked at the pcp's and decided that the price was too spendy for what i'd use it for. Settled on a titan GP break barrel and after installing an aftermarket trigger i'm satisfied.
Shown is a 25 yd target, top group is 10 shots, bottom is 5.
I do find the break barrel extremely sensitive to hold and point of impact changes with changes in shooting position and style, though some good groups are possible with attention to consistancy.
