Re: best buy for the buck
As I mentioned via PM, I picked up a new Terminator 175 HP with the Hawke MAP scope for $415 shipped to my door. 340fps, lifetime warranty. I would suggest the Terminator at that price point.
However, like I also mentioned, I went to Cabelas and held each one, got a feel for the stock hold and liked what the Terminator felt like. Your preference might be different.
I was pleased to find it dramatically reduced when shopping online. Best deal out there currently for the Terminator is about $450 but you might find one cheaper if you keep shopping. It's a discontinued model so the deals won't last forever. (But the warranty will!)
