Hi every one. I am new to the airgun forums. I have recently discovered just how fun and useful these airrifles can be at home. I will be looking for advice here and hoping that all the experience might help guide m to making a good purchase that I will enjoy. I look forward to hearing your input!!

Mike

Thanks for the Welcome.

I am mostly using it for Squirrels and other pests that keep destroying the screens on my screen porch and windows. Would also like to use it for partridge and rabbit on my small wooded lot.

Budget wise, I don't have a whole lot. Been off work because of COVID and can't wait to get back at it!! But I can do $200 to $250 at he moment.

Might want to have a look at this one: https://airgunarcheryfun.ca/22-25-cal-xisico-xs28m-magnum-air-rifle/

Your budget and purpose pretty much limits you to similar springers. If this one's worth considering, then first contact wesb2007, owner of the website and highly respected member of this forum:
(https://www.airgunforum.ca/forums/member17818.html)

If he doesn't think you'll be happy with it, he'll recommend alternatives. I point you to this one only because I know the dealer will do right by you. I have no experience with this particular rifle. Of course, also consider other options in your price range that other members may suggest.

Cheers.

Hey Mike, welcome to the forum!
Yep thr XS28 are really nice, though they do kick quite a bit and can make accuracy a bit challenging. The XS25 is a nice option. I've got a bunch of them coming tomorrow.
Regards,
Wes
