These in .22 are good for rabbit hunt and have cheap ammo.
In the netherlands these guns are free to own without energy restrictions.
In germany and england energy restrictions apply and you need a firearms license for the interesting guns.
2 examples of base tech:
Simple break barrel with gas ram or metal spring 25+ Joules
Precharged Pneumatic 50+ Joules Scuba pump/handpump
Slingshot is an alternative (if legal):
At least I think so - but what do I know? This is my first collapse!
I bought a Benjamin 392 air rifle in .22 caliber. I'm not an airgun expert, but did some reading before layin down the fiat. Its not a break barrel, its an old-fashioned pump style rifle that needs to be pumped several times before you shoot. From what I read, the break barrel guns are more powerful, but can need more maintenance and require a change in technique from a firearm (read that, haven't shot one).
My thought is that for the suburban dweller this will be a quiet way to add squirrels, rabbits and doves to the dinner menu.
I have a couple air rifles. One is a Winchester .177 that is pretty accurate, shoots 1100 fps and is a break barrel. The other is an Air Force Talon SS .22 that charges off a scuba tank. The Talon is an awesome gun. Quiet, Accurate and powerful. Costly at ~$800, but worth it for a gun that is stupid accurate and a blast to shoot. Well worth the $$.
IMO the Gamo Whisper is a POS, bought one when it first came out and was very disappointed. Sold it at a loss.
Nice stuff leadbrasssilver, I don't have a PCP myself, theres semi auto available nowadays from Swedish FX airguns.
They are innovative, and solid, but they are quite expensive. https://www.fxairguns.com/
Weihrauch is a good brand too, probably the most sold airgun in germany, and some in the UK, the ones in my pictures above were weihrauchs. (Hw-90 and Hw-100) They are a bit on the heavy side (weightwise), but good buildquality and accuracy.
The UK has many good brands but most models are low powered versions. Due to regulation.
I really like american sporter stocks, because it looks classic.
Heres some airgun porno.
