No need for envy, this is picture proof I am a sick man. Dont follow me down this path, I've been robbing houses and stealing cars to fund this habit, LOL.

You really only need 1, If I had to choose which ones I liked the best it would be either of the first 2. I probably like the Air Arms 410 the best and some nice glass doesnt hurt either. The Daystate is great too it gets 70 shots and has a really comfortable stock.I wouldnt hesitate to go after racoon sized animals if I was given a good head shot. Both of them will get 1/2 inch groups at 50 yards and still have plenty of penetration tocompletely pass through a squirrel head.

Jon, I remember when my Sheridan was the envy of all of my friends for what it was capable of shooting. It had power thanks to the Sheridan pellet design and very good accuracy. But it pales in comparison to even my springer Beemans. If I had had my Air Arms 410 when I was a kid there may have been many more extinct animals on earth than there are now. I used to carry my Sheridan in my golf bag at a course near where I grew up. There were lots of jackrabbits and ground squirrels there. I would tell the group to go on without me and I'd hide in the trees and shoot the vermin. Today they'd have the SWAT team out there after me. But back then the greens keeper used to push the jackrabbits down the course toward me to pick them off. He was happy to get rid of them along with the ground squirrels. Those were fun days, but the newer adult air rifles make it just as fun again and are much more quiet. :signs1242cn:

Im glad to see Im not the only one with this addicting habit (disease). Great collection you have there. Just got back from a trip up north to a friends property to attend a Bar-B-Q. Dragged the toy hauler up there and spent a few days. He had told me he had a ground squirrel problem, and if I wanted, I can thin them out for him. I took the Air Ranger with me, and managed to do a little yard work. Well, I'll be going back pretty soon for more gs,s. He also mentioned he has a coyote problem. Hmmmmm!!

Rich,I just started doing a little research on predator calling and plan to try it with airguns this season. I really want to try and bag some fox and some raccoons with some of my hunting guns.I would pass on anything other than a good headshot of course but the more I shoot these guns and see how they can penetrate I really believe that some of my more powerful guns are up to the task.My Air Arms 410 shoots at 35 ftlbs with a 21 gran kodiak, and from my tests I think the pellet would completely pass through a gray fox's head. The gun is certainly accurate enough IMO to bag a fox out to about 35-40 yards.I guess we will find out in January. BTW, isnt that Air Ranger one heck of a nice gun? mine is a 35ftlb model.

Thats a great story John. My weapon of choice when I was young was the good old wood and steel crosman pumpmaster 760. It was way under powered but I didnt know and either did all the birds, rabbits, and squirrels. I probably killed a pick-up truckload of varmints with that gun growing up in rural PA. I have very fond memories of those times, just walking around never ending fence rows and corn fields doing what a boy is meant to do....... exploring! A young boy shouldnt be pent up playing Xbox all day.If I had a the 410 ERB back then you might as well have put a nice .22 long rifle in my hands, to me so far PCP airguns fill almost every role the .22lr does only with a slightly more limited range. I havent owned too many rimfires that are as accurate as a modern PCP rifles is all the way out to 50 yards. Thar Anshutz 2002 I have a picture of up there gave me more than one 50 yard group that measured a 1/4 inch. Of course it's a little too heavy to carry into the woods.Enjoy your second childhood fellas, and I'm glad you've found your way to the modern adult air rifle, they are truly deadly in the right hands.

Hey Jon, those Air Rangers are sweet. Mine is the 50ft lb. in .22. I also have an Air Arms 410e, Logun Gladiator, FX Monsoon, Sumatra carbine, Webley Venom Viper and about seven or eight handguns. One hand gun is an HPA 2250 that will spit out a 14.3 grn. cp at over 800fps. Also have a couple of springers also. I just recently sold a buddy of mine an FX Tarantula in .22 with a grade 3 turkish walnut stock. I'll probably regret it sometime in the near future. Anyway, I'll be up at my friends property again to take care of the ground squirrel population in the not too distant future. Hope you get your fox, and be sure to post some pics.
