    Beginner Air Rifle - Backyard Shooting

    I'm looking for something my son and i can do in the backyard.. target shooting, and possibly small game, armadillos, etc.

    I live in a subdivision, but my backyard backs up to an empty wooded area. So, I'd like something powerful, but not too loud.

    At first, I was looking at the Gamo Swarm Fusion or Magnum. After doing some research, they do not appear to get good reviews. I also came across http://flyingdragonairrifles.org/http://flyingdragonairrifles.org/

    Anyone have any recommendations and/or experience with either Gamo or the Chinese knockoffs?

    Thanks in advance!

    I have a Benjamin Trial Nitro Piston 2 that I snagged off of Midway for $99 a while back. Got ride of the plastic tube scope it came with, but it's pretty quiet and I can shoot quarter-sized groups with it at about 30 yards. I am not an expert with these things though.

    Iím in the same boat and have the same air rifle. I can tell you I like the piston over a ďspringerĒ as I think itís way more accurate. I mostly use mine to teach my son to shoot a scoped rifle and for fun at the camp. Also another must have is one of those loader pellet pens but I canít recall the name.
