I have a Daisy 1000 with a 3x9 scope on it and really good fiberoptic iron sights and this little puppy is a squirrel slayer of the highest order. I have also killed one cat and a raccoon with it as well. Head shots on squirrel inside 25yrds is easy. BTW only one shot to the head was needed to kill the raccoon. Best hundred bucks I ever spent on a air rifle.

My wife and older brother each have scoped .177s. I have a .22 We do a lot of back yard shooting at spinning targets and paper. It's a cheap fun way to get the whole family involved in bettering their marksmanship.

Because people like me saw the 2nd most liberal voting senator running for election and winning, and then hearing his cabinet saying things like "Don't ever let a crisis go to waste". So when Sandy Hook happened, they used that crisis to try and shove all these recent gun and mag capacity issues down our throats.

I bought a .22 cal Benjamin nitro piston air rifle to play with rather than shoot up my meager supply of .22 lr.
This thing will shoot 950 fps and is a hoot to play with. We set up on old dishwasher frame with a shoot n see target on a wooden frame at 25 yds and dialed the scope in. The .22 would shoot through the back of the dishwasher cabinet. It was thin stainless steel and the pellets I used would either dent it severely or penetrate it . The scope is junk but the break barrel rifle is a great little air gun. keeps me shooting at least.
