I just ordered my first "adult" air rifle. I have been wanting one for some time. My new house has too many squirrels raiding my garden plus my wife showed an interest so I figured the time was right.
Ordered a Benjamin Trail Nitro piston rifle today from Pyramdair.com and can't wait for it to get here. I got the .22 version. I am curious if anyone else is shooting a nitro piston rifle? I really like the idea.
I did handle this rifle at a local Gander Mountain but they wanted way too much. I got this rifle http://www.pyramydair.com/s/m/Benjamin_Trail_NP_Nitro_Piston_air_rifle_combo/2049 plus five tins of pellets plus shipping & handling and still came out $20 cheaper then Gander wanted for just the rifle
That's my next airgun except in .25 caliber. I have a Benjamin Discovery
and a 392, both .22 cal. The Discovery is one of my favorite guns. It's pure
death on small game. At 30 yards, I can put 10 pellets in a nickle size hole.
The 392 is just as accurate but pumping it up 8 times in between shots
will get you to shaking a little before you can shoot 10 rounds.
Pyramid Air is where I got both of mine and will get my Trail NP from them
when I get it. Both my guns like the heavier pellets and I'd bet you'll find
that yours does too. The best I've used so far is the Diablo Exact Jumbo
I'm anxious to try the Nitro Piston. Let me know how you like it.
