    WTB: Quality air gun to use for while my range is closed

    Hello. First, if this ad is inappropriate, please delete.

    Well, my gun range is closed due to the virus stuff, and so I would like to get a quality, competition grade, air rifle/pistol for practice at my home. Cannot shoot a regular firearm in the neighborhood. So, an air gun is a good option.

    I am sure folks on this site will be shooters in a number of disciplines, and so asking if you have a competition air gun that you would be willing to sell.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the website links. Checked them out but pretty pricey. Especially since I am currently unemployed. Looking for something used that someone is no longer using.

    Thanks

    Keep in mind, even a Daisy is a good rifle to practice with, since you're primarily focusing on the fundementals, and NOT long range accuracy.

    Air rifle at 10 meters (make sure you have the correct size target for that distance) and you can let 'em rip...


    BUT any sufficiently accurate air rifle with real sights is not going to be cheap... BUT it will be something you can use for practice for the rest of your life from the comfort of you own back yard or basement...

    I'd look over the used gun listings at targettalk.org

    That's where the serious air gun shooters hang out. The problem is finding something that is reasonably priced but of good enough quality that you aren't learning bad habits.
