I havent shot a pellet gun since i lent my bro in law my crossman several yrs ago.I like those new gamo air rifles ya might want to take a look at those.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

miss deer shot ,it all depends on several factors.where are you hunting?do you like heights?are there safe trees? how many people?can you climb? I need a little more info.Both types have their advantages /disadvantages

Don't use an air rifle/ pellet gun on a fox. Largest game animal should be a rabbit, with a head shot only. Take it from a rancher........ Do they allow a .22 caliber firearms there?
