Anybody own one of these .177 caliber pellet pistols?

I'm considering getting a pellet gun for some orchard pest control, and thought these sounded like decent pistols for the price. The fact that they weigh within an ounce of the real pistols and have similar ergonomics might make for fun & informal practice away from the range, as well ...

I was thinking about the orange or yellow colored Umarex licensed version, simply because it's an obvious non-real color.

forget a pellet gun, get a air rifle. most air pistols are pretty worthless and on par with a red rider for the power. Shoot anything bigger than a robin it just pisses them off while a good air rifle will kill a cat as well as a .22lr non HP load.

i almost got one until i saw that it was about the same price as a P22!!!

i think a better way to go would be a P22 if you want something cheap for firearms training and an airsoft copy of the P99 for indoors or force-on-force work...be sure to wear eye protection

I have the CP22 and the CPPK... they're not worth it. :o

I bought them more out of desire to have gun replicas, in which case they're okay.
