    I buy a lot of air guns from local pawn shops. Taking them home, I often find out why they were sold. The Ruger Impact .22 I tested tonight is a very pleasant exception. 25 shots at 25' seated, elbows supported, and not a single flyer.
    From Ruger's web site:
    Ruger® Impact

    The Ruger® Impact air rifle provides lots of shooting fun, whether you are out plinking or small game hunting. The .22 caliber makes this gun great for taking out small game or pests. At 1000 fps, there is plenty of speed to get the job done. This air rifle also comes with the patented SilencAir system, which uses a five-chamber baffle system to quiet the muzzle noise of the rifle. The Impact comes packaged with a scope that is mounted to a Picatinny rail base. The wood stock combines traditional styling with a modern touch. The break-barrel design allows for easy loading and recharging of the spring piston. Manufactured under license from Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc.

    1000 fps is the "rated" MV of the rifle with alloy pellets. 800 fps is for lead pellets. Looks like a fun gun for under $100 (refurb)

    I doubt 800 fps is a real velocity for the .22 - I need to get mine back from a bud I loaned mine to and chrony it...
