Default Pellet rifle....

More fun than a 54 yo man should be legal to have....picked up a .22 Gammo Whisper pellet rifle with 3x9 scope.

Squirrel riddance never been so fun, pellet rifle shot have come a long way! Deadly accurate out to 60 + yards with lethal force....my perch from the top window and the quietness of the gun keeps em in line of fire instead of scrambling

Anyone else into these pellet rifles?

The pellet rifle is pretty darn close to knockdown power, super quiet and crazy cheap to shoot....

Ive got a Gamo 440 .177 that came with the 4X32 scope. I've killed quite a few squirrels with it, but at much closer ranges than 60 yds. I don't think I could hit one @ 60 yds. I need to go sight it again, been missing some at close range.

Y'all leave them tree rats alone. They just earning a living at the food bank like a self respecting democrat. That bird feed is unfairly hoarded in large quantities and should be dispersed more evenly.

I picked up my son a Stoger X20s2. This thing is a beast. I have about taken it over, as my son called me out this weekend. Too much fun. Biggest thing I can say, buy the best pellets you can.

my first gun was a Crossman pellet gun. Killed several squirrels with it. Very accurate and powerful.

I picked one up a few months back and took it back the next day. I was very unimpressed with the accuracy after hearing all the hype.

I've been often tempted, but can't justify it since my savage mkii with outback iid suppressor loaded with cci subsonic segmented hollow points is way quieter and far more effective.

I have a Crossman Quest and a Remington Genesis both in .177 caliber. The Crossman is a solid, smooth shooting air gun...pretty accurate a ways out. It has a 4x32 scope on it.

The Remington is accurate and looks cool, but feels kinda cheap. It makes a "TANG" that's heard and felt when it shoots. It has a 3-9x40 scope. Squirrels are not safe in my yard. I can also take out rabbits and possums with either.

Have both a Gamo and a RWS that I inherited from my dad when he passed. ( I had a Benjamin that I love ) Took both out this weekend when I went walking my property to pick up ground blinds for the year.

Took a while to sight in the Gamo, the scope is cheap as can be with a blurry view and an MOA adjustment that just does not move well, but once I finally got it on the mark it was drilling the bull shot after shot. Am definitely going to upgrade that scope.

The RWS was easier to sight in and ended with same results hitting the bull once sighted.

Shot the door frame of an old abandoned camper that is on the property and both appeared to do the same damage to it. This kind of surprised me as the Gamo had "Tang" to it like GoldDot40 reported and feels less sturdily constructed.

Unfortunately no bushy tails seemed willing to test out the lethality of either. May go sit one of my lock-ons this weekend, weather allowing, and see what happens.
