Hi there,

This is my first post.

Any feedback welcomed,

Manny

Is that the H&K USP copy? I heard the trigger pull us pretty heavy...

I like Umarex line personally. Beretta 92fs I had was pretty good -accurate and very well made. Sig Clone 'reck police' seems like a nice little gun so is the CP88. not hunting guns just some good plinking fun!

I'm not looking to hunt with it, just having fun and looking for the best accuracy I can produce.
Was thinking .177, repeater for the fun factor

I'd like around $100 too, and reliable (I know that's a lot to wish for...LOL)

For $100, fun, repeater, accurate, .177 cal., the PX4 is your best bet.

The PX4 is good looking, no question about it.
Seems slower than the Gamo

Trigger seems a bit off, but the PT80 too at almost 10#!

Thanks all for the feedbacks

I recently picked up the Umarex H&K P30 just before Christmas and I cant put it down.
Shoots great, comfortable, easy on C02 and Umarex quality.

M&P is a fun inexpensive pistol too!

So, right now here is where I am:

Gamo, althought with a rifled barrel and shooting pellets are junk.I like the 410 fps though...
The PX4 is nice, but slower and the blowback seems to be detrimental on accuracy...

What I am sure now:
I want a pellet, rifled pistol for less bounce back and more accuracy
I want as many fps as possible
All of this in the 100ish $ ...

Will the PX4 be powerful enough to be fun?
Will it be durable?

Should I save more and go with a Colt 1911? But at 200+, the fun is pretty much gone...

Loads of questions!

Thanks for your input,
Manny

Everyone gets hung up on fps. I have never noticed a difference between 400 and 500 fps when shooting any pellet gun. Maybe a difference between 400 fps and 900 fps. But who really cares when it comes to non PAL AG's?

Oh, I like Lauchlin's advice on the old Crosman Revolver. I bought a Hahn single action revolver this year (Hahn is a old Crosman line) and it is super fun to shoot. I think you'd have a similar experience with a Crosman 38t and I've seen a number of them pop up in the FS section here lately.

X2 on the Crosman 38T. If you wanna go with a wheel gun, gotta love that 38T. Fully adjustable rear sight is a real plus.

Beeman P-17 is a great gun for the money too......

I recently bought one and cant put it down, it will knock down my resettable 1" & 0.5" diameter targets from 30ft reliably all day too........Amazing trigger (which is adjustable) and it just feels and looks like a quality gun, they are also very easy to find considering Canadian Tire stocks them.....

the only downside is the red-dot that comes on them, the power switch has literally fallen right out of the unit on mine. But, whatever, the gun is worth a new/decent red-dot anyway.....

To be honest, I never even really liked air pistols until I got this P-17. The accuracy is seriously awesome, especially if you are used to Co2 repeaters....Its almost hard to believe the gun is a Chinese clone when you are looking at it/using it......
