    Being in a semi urban environment I can't get out to shoot as often as some of my rural brethren.

    Anyone else shoot a pellet or BB gun in the back yard on a regular basis?

    I had an old Crossman pump but a seal burst and I'm having to fix it so for now I use my wife's pink Red Ryder.

    I feel manly.

    I live in a small rural town. We sometimes have a pest problem (Starlings & Racoons) and discharging a firearm inside the City Limits is illegal.
    I purchased a Crosman G1 Extreme on sale from Dick's Sporting Goods On-Line for just over $100 with free shipping. I sometimes practice in my Work Shop with a homemade target box.
    It's listed at 1000 fps or 1200 fps with special pellets. I ran some standard pellets through my chronograph and they registered about 950 fps. It is a little big and bulky like the Gamo Whisper but the price was fair. It came as a combo with a 1" scope.

    My pellet rifle...

    Glad to see I'm not the only one...

    Pictured below is my GAMO Whisper chambered in .177 caliber. I just sit in my backyard and take grey squirrels, rabbit, crow, chipmunk...all day long without bothering the neighbors or having to wear annoying ear protection. If they make a sound or ruffle some leaves...they are mine!
