...go with a Diana 24/240, the ones made in Germany. They're great rifles, not much recoil, almost no twist and buzz.


I fully agree. In your budget and some coins left for a small scope (not that the 240 needs it!):

I have a .177 24C T05, a .22 240 T01, and a .177 240 T05, all are excellent airguns for the price :).


Thanks guys for all the posts, going through them now

AIRMEC
Those suggestion you posted look good, and I'm going blind here, so will up end going on whatever suggestions you all say.
I will say I'm not one to tinker with this stuff, so I hope adding that scope to that rifle, is a no brain er

Well, it started off slow...then little my little, they were inched in the house...

Common comments are....

1. Did you buy a 2nd one?
2. That one's black..they all look the same
3. How many do you need?
4. Are you on the computer looking at guns again?
5. Why is everything on our YouTube search coming up air guns?

And recently...
6. "Can I have your empty C02 tubes for a miniature diorama" she wants
to use them as Scuba tanks
7. Can I have some of your steel BB's for a texture in a photo shoot.

I bought her a small BB shooter, got her to try it, and at 30 feet, she was able to hit a nickle sized target.
Now she's "ok" with them.. LOL

Hitting a nickel sized target with a bbgun at 30 feet? Consistently? Grouping within a nickel sized circle? Is that bbgun an Avanti 499? Forgive my disbelief, I can't do anything remotely similar to that with any bbgun I have ever shot.

Hell no, not constantly ..I wish. :)


I gave her a crash course, she shot 6 shots, about a 1" to 2' group and one was bulls eye.

Enought to make her happy, and me to be able to buy more guns! LOL...just joking, I buy what I want.
She was shooting a Cheap Bersa BPCC9
