Once you try a PCP (pre-charged pneumatic) there will be no turning back. LOL!
-This is a Kalibrgun Cricket .25 Cal.
Over the years I picked up a few PCP rifles in the following calibers: .177, .22, and .25 caliber. Yes, I was the guy that said he would never buy an expensive pellet rifle. Well, my line of thinking changed the moment I fired my first shot.
If you are looking to try a PCP rifle, a good starting point is a Benjamin Discovery Single shot rifle. They come in .177 and .22 calibers. Being that PCP's need to be pumped up to fill the air reservoir, a high pressure hand pump will also be needed. Once the air chamber is pumped up, the rifle is good for many shots. Another good choice in a repeating rifle is the Benjamin Marauder. These are a magazine feed bolt actions, in calibers .177, .22, and .25 caliber.
If folks are interested in seeing photos of the above rifles let me know and I'll get some taken. If I can answer a few questions any one might have, ask away. These are not the BB guns and pellet rifles we grew up with as kids. The more you shoot them, the sooner you will learn that pellet rifles are typically ammo fussy. So try several different brands of pellets in varying weights. My experience has tended to show that most of my rifles seem to prefer heavier pellet weights. The high velocity, light weight alloy pellets have been marginal at best. So don't be afraid to try several brands and weights.
