Air Rifles

Any one into air rifles?

I have been looking at getting an air rifle for light target and rabbit use.

I'd like to stay under $200, maybe a little more.

From what I've seen so far the .22 looks like the best bet.

Most of the rifles I've seen that get good reviews, get bad reviews for the included scopes.

Any thoughts?

I don't hunt, but I do own this:

Less than $200 when my wife bought it for me. I just plink with it, but it seems to have quite a bit of power. I can't comment on accuracy, because we all know a gun is only as accurate as the firer, and I don't get enough practice shooting.

There is some beautiful stuff on the market but why in the world are the putting silencers on them, that's absurd.

I'll mostly target shoot. Those older style Crossman are classics.

Some of the spring rifles can be loud. That Can be a big deal in the suburbs.
