I know what you mean. I did order a new rod and reel though. But I hate to spread that around for fear they will start hoarding worms.
Nah get a pellet rifle. Big difference in my book. Bb guns are for kids pellet rifles are for use adults. And I have both. BB gun for my daughter pellet rifle for me and my son.
Air rifles and pellets are now in short supply; you're behind that curve
Don’t see many adults around these parts using pellet rifles let alone BB guns.
I have a .177 ruger air hawk and a .22 Benjamin Vaporizer.
The jury is still out in the Benjamin.
The air hawk was mediocre until about 500 pellets were run through it. Now it's a squirrel killer to shoot 30 yards.
Jump onto the airgun forum sometime. Alot of us enjoy pellet rifle and BB guns. Some of my best shots where made with a Bb gun. Grandpa was trying to shoot a wood boring caterpillar out of a old oak tree. When I got off the bus. Tried for 30 minutes to hit it. I got it first shot. And the time I popped a squirrel out of the top a pine tree. BB guns have also taught my kids how to shoot. And taken more squirrel then I care to count.
Did you mean pellet rifles are for use BY adults? Or did you mean pellet rifles are for use ON adults?
Last summer, I loaned my Sheridan Blue Streak to a buddy of mine that lives in a small town a bit south of here, and had a squirrel problem. I think he mostly used it on adult squirrels.
Just kidding around Meeks36. Both of our daughters and all three of our grandsons grew up (AND learned a lot about safety with firearms) shooting BB guns, as well as pellet rifles and pellet pistols in the back yard. Dandelion puff balls make great BB gun targets from the rear deck, and shooting them helps with their proliferation.
But my pellet and .22 rifles and handguns get a bigger workout no matter the year.
Must be a big job
