I remember the 1st BBgun mom and dad got me it was a bad ass gun was a .22 cal bbgun and it could do some damage!
Purchased my son a BB-Gun for Xmas it was a gift that we could do together target shooting.
The first BB-Gun was:
This is a Daisy 102 buck single pump action BB Repeater. Loads at the barrel.
The first issue was it broke after very little use.
2nd issue in it only had a max muzzle velocity of 275 fps which causes ricocet not good when teaching your son to shoot.
We wear eye protection but still if it comes back and hits you that is not fun at all.
On to the 2nd purchase I got the Crosman 760 Pumpmaster Air Rifle
This rifle has a Velocity: up to 625(BB)/600(pellet) feet per second not bad powerful enough for target shooting.
But the aiming on this rifle was absolutely terrible and while it did embed into the target with wood behind it it still some times ricochet and accuracy was terrible.
Rifle went back again for the 2nd time.
On to the 3rd rifle a Crosman 66 .177cal .
This rifle is quite more powerful than the last used for target practice and small game hunting.
745 fps with BBs Shoots .177 calib and 700 fps with pellets at .177 Caliber.
Now this one does not only embed but goes through the wood using bbs.
I have not tested pointed hunting pellets but can imagine would surely embed in the wood.
This was the keeper took some time to zero in the scope but I can pretty much aim and hit what I aim at from 50 yards that I have tested.
I have been saving for the one that I want and hopefully will get in the next few weeks.
Will be another crosman product The Crosman Storm XT break barrel pellet gun.
This gun has a full wood stock spring loaded and break barrel for charge.
The specs are pretty sick.
3-9 x 32 precision scope (Not to great only bad side to this gun)
Two-stage adjustable trigger
Fiber optic front sight
Micro-adjustable rear fiber optic
Power source: spring
Velocity: 1,000 fps
Mechanism: break barrel
Stock barrel: hardwood
Weight: 6.02 lbs.
Barrel: rifled steel
Scope mount: dovetailed
Yep 1000 fps almost breaks the sound barrier.
from what I have read it has some kick on fire but accuracy is superb and depending on the ammo used it will break 1000 fps meaning that it can almost break the sound barrier.
After this purchase my son and I will go out and shoot together. Good ole American fun.
