Got a good deal on a Beemon RS2. Nothing fancy Just need a air rifle for this one place . too small a spot for the 204 and the fuzzy rats won't let me get close with my bow any more. Is this a half way decent air gun?. I think peekers a RS2 and its a real shooter. Just needed something that can reach just a bit farther than a bow .40-50 yards and quiet. Im getting too many toys I hope I do not like this as much as a bow. Will get up one day to go get some squirrels and freez up Not knowing what to take . Lets see my wing recurve or maybe the long bow or the 204 or the air rifle. :crazy: Something like a Quest are making me drool also.

That is supposed to be a decent air rifle. Is it .177 or .22? I forget what the RS2 model is.

Make sure to put a decent mildot scope on it that will handle the double recoil of the spring piston (like a 3-9 or 4-12 x 40AO scope), that way you'll be able to compensate for the curvy trajectory of the pellet.

Have fun with that and post photos when you get a chance. :) Welcome to air gunning

Brant, from the photos it looks like it might have come with a 4x scope (see his post with Beeman RS2 and dead squeeks).

I have the Beeman RS2 177/22 cal gun.
Good shooter for 30 to 40 yards, at 30 yards I can keep it on bottle caps all day long.
I have only used the 22 cal barrel.
Taken a coon and a few squirrels with it so far, upgraded scope to redhead 4-16x40 AO. non mil dot. I wish it was a mil dot scope now!
A little to powerful/noisy for where I live for shooting pesky little devils :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow:

I cannot agree more with ARH on the following.
(Make sure to put a decent mildot scope on it that will handle the double recoil of the spring piston (like a 3-9 or 4-12 x 40AO scope), that way you'll be able to compensate for the curvy trajectory of the pellet.)
Mine likes the RWS 14.3 pointed pellets.

For around the house I use my Crosman 1322 for squirrels and such, anything bigger gets the Beeman RS2 gun.
