    Default Recommend me an air rifle.

    As title, i'm thinking of buying an air rifle as we have rats in the garden and i've tried all sorts to get rid of them, traps and poison which they won't go near, nothing is working !
    Some years ago i had a Weihrauch HW77K .177 cal rifle that was excellent for target shooting, but what i really want now is something with loads of power in a .22 cal.

    I'm setting myself a budget of upto £450 which must include a decent scope and mounts.
    Any shooters out there can point me in the right direction ?

    This one caught my eye........

    I have a Air Arms S410 TDR. I bought it 2nd hand in September. I love it, its right at the legal 12lbs limit power wise, 10 shot mag, silencer, 0.22.

    Its a take down rifle with a good range, so it easily takes out the usual targets, rabbits etc.

    I'd recommend it to anyone!

    I only paid £300 for it, 2nd hand. That was with a new drag bag, pot of practice ammo, pot of kill ammo and a box of targets. I'd look more at the 2nd hand market or see if they'll do deals on new ones. The one near me has a whole counter of used weapons. Have you been into any shops?

    My mate is bringing a BSA Airsporter round to me today, but i think that it might be underpowered. Not sure how accurate it is either as its quite old.

    I bought some Wasp pellets yesterday as these iirc shoot quite true and straight. Let me see how i get on with the BSA, if its not accurate enough, i'll give you a bell.
