Visit to read excellent reviews about air guns to make the decision easy for you. to make a right choice, consider some questions.

What do you want the gun for? Hunting? General shooting? Contest? If you answer any of these, there are again a lot of questions, such as what will you hunt or what type of contest you will be participating in. The answer can help you decide better with choosing the gun; e.g. the rules for target shooting govern the few existing models.

How strong are you? Spring-powered guns need a cocking effort counted in pounds. You might be very strong, but you might not want to work so hard with that gun. In that case, pick up  a spring gun which is easy to cock. A precharged pneumatic or CO2 gun is even better.

Do you want to kill pests with the gun? If yes, an air rifle is just right. Only a few pistols are available that are strong enough to kill pests definitely.

Do you need a repeater? If yes, your choice is further narrowed. Many semi-automatic air pistols are actually revolvers, meaning their triggers are generally not as light as that on a real semi-automatic gun. Repeating rifles were becoming scarce, but they are again starting to take over the gun market.

What kind of quality do you want? This is obviously an important question to be considered. A handmade Whiscombe recoilless spring air rifle may not be more precise than an Air Arms TX 200 worth 1/5th of price. However the Whiscombe features caliber interchangeability, magnum power, recoilless operation and exclusiveness.

There are many other questions you can consider, but the above given are the most important. One more important one to consider is about your budget. You can protect yourself from the many pricing dangers by doing some research. Take opinion of people about the gun you plan to buy, but don’t rely on individual opinions. If 90% shooters are talking positively about a model, there are of course higher chances that the model is good.
