    I’m thinking that might be the safe bet, try to find the best deal possible on a scoped model and let the chips fall where they may. One common bit of advice is to stay at 800fps or so, speed can be a detriment to accuracy and isn’t necessarily needed.


    I also think the Karma bus stopped with a delivery at your Walmart my man!

      The Beeman is $140. Add a low cost scope and you'll be around $200

        They have some really good fiber optic sights on most of the pellet rifles I'm looking at. Plenty good for close shooting anyway. The scopes aren't really impressing me much, think I'll pass on combo deals if I can.
        As for the stingers, I just got lucky. Happens to all of us at one time or another. Only other rifle cartridges they had were 2 kinds of 7Rmag, probably 4 boxes each. I hear stories of "secret caches" of ammo in boondock gas stations and such but I only believe what I see.

          I got a Remington .22cal that with premium pellets goes a little over 1000fps. It is a good rifle, not sure who made it.
