So if you are looking for a way to shoot ground squirrels in the non-lead areas of California here you go. Get yourself an adult air rifle and have some fun.
Are pellet rifles included in the non-lead ammunition ban?Pellet rifles are not considered a firearm. Consequently, neither pellet rifles nor theirprojectiles would be included in the ban.

SJ, won't a Beeman R9 go 70 to 100 yards accurately? You have one right?Is the disco better than the R9? in accuracy and power and distance?
Buy a Benjamin Discovery with the pump. Excellent airgun lots of power and accurate as anything made. Buy it from Mac1 airguns as the owner will tune it and see that it shoots well. It's an amazing airgun for the money and under $500.

I see... So if it hits something, it will hit it harder then right, and therefore it will travel farther then right?... Right now I don't know what I should get, either the R9 or the Discovery... my idea right is to get the R9 (well, not right now now...) and then save up some money to get the Disco... For some reason I don't like the idea of carrying a pump with me... at least not yet... but if that means that i'll get more power, then maybe it will be worth it... and I also think the PCP is a little more expensive too...This last few times that I have shot the gamo I have really enjoyed it, so i think it will be worth it to invest into this hobby... the only thing that frustrates me is the fact that i have to travel to the mountains to shoot...I got into contact with "ratassasin" and he told me that he'll go shoot with me after the holidays have passed which I think is pretty cool... most likely i'll learn a thing or two... plus i am learning a lot from reading what others have posted...Good thing i registered with this Forum... thanks guys..
It's a PCP or precharged pneumatic and has more power behind the pellet. It is not powered by a spring it has an air tank that holds compressed air.

right now california is turmoil with gun/hunting legislation.
yes, brown did veto some of the most insidious bills...but...check with local authorities BEFORE hunting anywhere in california with ANY kind of ammo...tracers and armor piercing are illegal...as an example. IIRC, there was some hullabaloo about the pellets that have the steel inserts being "Armor piercing"...

I think from what I read, the bill will ban only centerfire lead ammunition. Rimfire and airguns are not affected (yet).
My Disco is minute of squirrel out to 90 yards, anything beyond that falls below my lowest mildot in my scope.

I heard all the talk about banning lead. Please wash hands after shooting. I owned a gun shop and also using different Dillon re-loaders all setup I did a lot of reloading. Now I reloaded a lot of lead wad-cutters for the registry police and other organization with no failures. I worked in a ventilated area and made thousands of rounds. I did this for ten years with no ill effect; yet another dealer made them in his shop and got lead poisoning and had to quit. Just and I repeat ; wash your hands if you handle enough lead. I re-loaded everything. i had to trim a 30-30 cartridge down and made a 30 Herret bullet for my Thomson Contender.

If you have the money, go with a Marauder - you will end up there anyway.
