Purdy air rifle. good shooting.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

Thanks guys this gun is as good as they come i can't be happier with it for my needs . Its smaller than the ERB i traded it for and easier to pump up to full capacity with the benjamin pump .Speaking of mine just crapped out after 11 months so i ordered a hill pump $279 for a 10 yr warrenty on the hill compared to 90 days for the benji pump.at $200 easy choice . It's knot bad on shot count either 30 high power shots , but i cant undestand the power adjuster from high to low the 18 grain drops 6 inches at 60 ft . So this stays locked on full power like my other one it has a little less power and distance range but overall i spot and stalk anyway even pidgeons i try to get 150 ft in before shooting and it amazing from this distance i hit cigarrete lighters every time from 50 yds. Even hit a cherry bomb from 110 ft but it didn't blow i guess 8 months of weather killed it laying in the mud but the carbine smacked it dead center. Belive me i'am knot that good a shot its all the guns i have to be honest. Giving thought to selling my disco and putting the money toward a BSA lighting xl in .25 cal
