A little over 2 months ago picked up a Gamo Whisper Pro Elite from the Bargain Cave at Cabelas for $169. I got it help me address a pest control issue Im having. To say Im impressed with this thing is an understatement. Its very powerful and super accurate Dime sized groups at 30 feet (which is the distance I kill most my pests at) To date I have 21 Grey squirrels (filling the freezer with them) 6 Coons 4 Possums 4 skunks The coons go to local guys that want the hides. The skunks and possums go to the burn pile and the squirrels get eaten. IF your looking for a plinker that is pretty cheap and with low cost ammo ($8 for 750 pellets) then look at the gamo whisper pellet gun.
