I hear the .308 caliber ones are the best. Powerful enough to drop large game and still small enough of a diameter that you can get multiple shots without loosing a ton of pressure. All I have is a .22 cal pump pistol but its good for small critters.

Cool. I don't know if that company makes the .308 but if you google big bore air rifles I think you'll find it interesting. They make up to 50 cals. There's YouTube videos to watch also. I'm pretty new to the whole big bore air rifle deal. I went to a gun show for them a few months ago it was pretty cool they even had full auto suppressed guns. My buddy has a .26 cal (i think) that he says is basically silent and a .45 cal that's basically as loud as a real rifle and will shoot through concrete blocks.

Ha don't think the neighbors would appreciate me using an ar on pest
I know what you mean. My neighbors did not mind. But now that I live in an apartment they won't stop calling the cops who keep bringing the SWAT teem. I mean really like you have never seen a man in his underwear chasing and bump firing tracer rounds at the neighbors poodle for peeing on his tire. : confused :

Lewis and Clark carried an air rifle on their expedition to explore the Louisiana Purchase.

I have a Ruger Air Hawk. I bought it because I had too many squirrels in my back yard. I have an oak tree in my yard that always produces a lot of acorns. The squirrels were cute until they became destructive. One of them got under the hood of my daughters car and chewed the wiring to her headlights in two and chewed holes in the tubing for her windshield washers.

So far I have killed four of the little beggars with it.

That's right. If it weren't for an airgun they never would have survived.

Gamo hornet is an awesome air rifle. Mine has been through hell in the last few months iv had it. .177 is probably the best Cal to find ammo for.

No doubt .22 can be hard to find and anything bigger is so expensive you're better off molding it yourself.

I have a spring powered Tech Force 41 that is made in China . most accurate pellet rifle I have ever owned , the rifling in it is superb , decent trigger and best of all the barrel does not move in the receiver like most of the daisys , crossmans and a few other brands . I shoot it at 34 ft and shoot 1/2" sticker dots consistantly with it to keep up on practice of staying calm while on the trigger. Best part was I think I paid $29 for this on the Cat tool truck when it came thru town , nice solid beechwood stock and it weighs 7#

Must be highly accurate. Still insane price. You could get everything you need to shoot a .308 for a while for that price.
