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.

Oh I know. My point was almost every town has a fire station. No so with dive or paintball shops.

My daughters red ryder and my daisy. Fun guns since no one has 22lr in stock. I took the scope off of mine. Could never get it sighted in.

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 have a Gamo 440 Hunter .177cal. It's an excellent pellet rifle and great for back yard practice and plinking.

Heads Up! Woot.com has some refurbished Gamo air rifles on sale today http://sport.woot.com/plus/gamo-refurbished-air-rifles . Compare the prices for yourself; woot is good but not as good as pre-amazon acquisition woot was.

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.

I do know the break barrel spring or air piston rifles are absolutly consistant. I'm looking for a repeater and/or semi-auto air rifle.
