I've been itching for a quality air gun, but there's always been another desire to upgrade my field shotgun. The airgun could be good for the young boys, but they like the 10/22 also.

I voted for the airgun.

they will promote good shooting habits in man and boy alike. More opportunities to shoot it, and just one of those "got to haves" in every gun cabinet.


Then buy yourself a nice O/U for Christmas!!

Marty, I voted for both. My inspiration comes from my beautiful wife. After all, she couldn't possibly buy a new dress without also purchasing new shoes. Buy 'em both and never look back!

LMAO!

That is some killer ammo! I love it! That's some seriously smart thinking going on there.

Would she need a purse too? Maybe? Hmmm.

i vote air rifle. i dont know where you live but here in RI you cant shoot a firearm in a residential area. so i use air rifles because its cheap, little collateral damage. and no fireams leagal bullshit. a shotgun is nice, but where are you actually gona shoot it? odviously not at the range. u can shoot in your basement with an air rifle. u could shoot an air rifle in your yard or even brandish it and chances are they know what it is and no one will call the cops on you. walk outside with a shotgun and expect a swat team at your door lol.

and do the math, what costs more, pellets, or shotgun shells?

and labor. what takes more effort? cleaning powder residue out of a shotgun bore, or rarely brushing the barrel of an air rifle?

i rest my case. but hey its your choice.
