I have been doing my best to be informed about air guns, and associated gear and am hoping to partake in the forum discussion to help me make the best gear purchases and use of the equipment for fun, ethical, hunting.

I currently own the Benjamin .22 and Stoeger A30 .177 break barrel rifles, both from Canadian tire. I have been out hunting once, successfully, with the Stoeger and really want to get more into the hobby. Hunting wise my main target is grouse, as I also aim to use the feathers for fly-tying, another hobby. I am limited, for now, without having my PAL but aim to get the next course I can and purchase a more powerful rifle.

I have been looking at getting a Gamo swarm .22 (in fusion, normal or magnum) ideally with the gen 2 loader. I have also been looking at upgrading my Crosman scope although I am not sure what with. A lot of the information I find shows really great rifles and then when I try to price them out I cant find them sourced in Canada, Ideally in Ontario as I live near the GTA.

I would really appreciate tips on what rifles, and optics to get more locally sourced if possible.

As a side note for people in halton region, where do you go practice shooting, and good crown land areas or ranges?

Kind Regards,

Welcome to the forum, Edgar.
Since you already have a couple lower priced springers, I would suggest saving for a higher quality springer air rifle, like AirArmsTX200 or Weihrauch's M97 for
a P.A.L. air rifle. You will not be sorry you went this route.
Weihrauch has a number of higher powered air rifles ranging in price from just over $400.00 to $900.00.
The TX200's run from about $700.0 to $925.00.

Best Wishes
