    4.5mm (.177) and some where around 450fps to 500fps (10 Meter air rifles are designed to toss a pellet through a 5mm target at 10 meters, not to hunt).

    I never put much thought into owning one but I am hooked. They have some that shoot 357/9mm and reach out 200 yards. They also have some awesome custom big bore options:

    Spring guns do not do well off of benches. Too many vibrations.

    The hunting class (Modified 10 Meter style guns) and 10 Meter Compressed Air guns are usually charged from a scuba tank. Saves the pumping for the bicycles.

    Kentucky windage works best with springers...

    You get to know what you and the rifle are capable of after awhile...

    I take headshots on squirrels and chipmunks all day long....and have even taken dove in the backyard.

    I still have a Crosman Shiloh CO2 revolver, but the seals are gone.

    I'm going to rebuild it if I can get the parts.

    I have a Crossman 3100 break barrel springer. Only tosses a .177 pellet downrange at 500-600 fps. With the stock sight I can put pellets inside a soda pull tab straw hole at 20 yrd.
    Also have 2 M&P BB guns that I started my wife out on.
    Pics are the same types. I guess I need to take some pics.

    I love the thumb hole stock. :cool:

    Bad news for me though. My Crosman has ratchet damage to the cylinder. I'll try to build it up with silver alloy. The cylinder is potmetal, so it's a tricky business.

    Every one of these guns eventually was damaged by the loading pin getting into a chamber, then when the action cycled this stripped the ratchet. New cylinders were impossible to find.

    It's funny. I've also owned both the CO2 Crossman Mark II and the Crossman Repeater springer.

    Went on vacation and was reunited with my Crosman Mark II Target pistol while at my parents house.
    Had this when I was in high school in the early/mid 80's. I'm pretty sure this pistol is a pre 1975 model.
    Gonna toss in a CO2 cartridge and a pellet and see if she still shoots.

    This started out as a .177 Cal Crosman pumper pistol. I swapped in a steel breech and 18" .22 Cal barrel, a rifle stock and a cheapo scope. Just recently added the paracord wrap on the stock.

    I have another in .177 with the steel breech mod. Not sure what other changes are in store for it. These things are the AR-15 of the air gun world. Lots of parts and mods available. They usually max out around 700 FPS depending on mods.

    I stopped at Cabela's last night and picked up another Daisy 880. It was my favorite gun when I was a kid. I didn't get a chance to open it and check it out, I hope it's still as good a gun as it remember it. It was an impulse buy.

    I was pretty happy to see 22lr at Cabela's as well and picked up 1200 rounds (their daily limit). I think a road trip every payday may be in order for a while. I also picked up a another 1k while traveling through Ohio for a fishing trip. How can Walmart claim they only get a box or two per delivery when Cabela's has a whole shelf of various brands?

    I work close to Walmart and it's like that you have to know when to go in in order to find certain ammunition.

    And then it's a grab-bag. I see different brands all the time. That's where I got 16 gauge shotshells and 22 Magnums. I've never seen them there recently.
