Well, this may not apply to most of you but still. Since I live in a country where firearms are very restricted I only have three rifles ,one shotgun and a handgun and a long drive to the range to get some practice, so I bought me a pellet "carbine" type shooter a few years ago. It's really nice to be able to shoot out in the yard I must say, and it's great to take out rabbits and the blackbirds who are spreading the trash from the bin out on the yard. My kid's got a break barrel variant for x-mas about the same time and it's fun shooting up cans with him also. The shooter I got wasn't the cheapest, but it felt alot like my main rifle I thought when I got it and Im very happy with it. Pros if you ask me: legal anywhere, accurate up to say 50 yards, powerful enough to put some food on the table, quiet, fun and practically free ammo (500 pellet for $10 roughly in Sweden and I pump with a hand pump) A Benjamin Marauder PCP-pistol in .22 with shoulder stock What's your experiences with pellet rifles?
