Default Air gunners!

How many of you are air gunners or back yard plinkers? What do you use? Well to start I own: Crosman Nitro Venom Dusk .177, Crosman M4 177, and Cybergun Sig Saur P226. Just saying Crosman M4 is probably one of my favorite Rifles I've shot!

I do enjoy using some Daisy break-action .177 to keep the treerats at bay. Got it from a buddy; thing has a 3-9x40 scope on it for my aging eyes. In the spring, when there are small treerats running wild, i use the flat-tip practice pellets to harass the rats without actually causing much damage, very motivational.

Got into the airgun thing a while back as well.

I have a Stoeger X20 and Crosman 1377, both in .177.

I've been looking at the Crosman Nitro Venom in .22 lately, might have to go ahead and pull the trigger on that one.....so to speak.

I shoot a .177 crossmen XT storm, I put a cheap wal mart scope on it works pretty good out to about 30 yards. I shoot everything from from birds to rabbits. I've had it for a while and I redid the stock took off the iron sights and painted it. Almost picked up one of the bone collectors pellet rifles but I didn't like how much of it was plastic.

Honestly one of my favorite rifle to shoot was a red rider bb gun I know it sounds crazy but it's just always fun from teaching cub scouts to just plinking in the back yard with my brother in law just shootin empty beer cans just goes right up there plinking with 22's.

I had a G&G mp5 clone that was fun. I used a SIG 2022 from Kwc that was fun too. That cyber gun p226 is very nice. They make a P229 clone as well but...I don't know, $140 for an Airsoft gun? After all the real steel I've purchased since plinking with those air guns I find it hard to rationalize the purchase.

Old school- Sheridan Blue Streak- 5mm (yeah, .20 caliber). Will drop a squirrel like a bad habit at 40 yards. At 10 yards can put one pellet after another into the same hole.

The .22 is nice my friend got that one but he likes mine better because of the wide variety of pellets, but then he got some of the destroyers and we hunt all day

Beman RS2. It has 2 barrels for 177 and 22. I prefer the 22. 2-7x40 AO scope. I mostly shoot in the garage at 10 to 15 yards.
