I have a gamo shadow 1000 and a tech force 99 ,both are pretty good guns,
The gamo had a very hard twang for a couple thousand shots and one day it changed in to more of a pop and not much twang,it became much easier to hits targets with it this way, I don't know if it shoots as hard as it did but I looked at the spring without completely dis assembling it and it looked alriight.]
I e-mailed gamo and they said it was just the spring breaking in,they also say on their webbsite that their guns do not need a break in ,so for all I know something has gone wrong with it, but it still shoots pretty hard and more accurately without the re-coil. The other gun is a 22 cal. chinese made thing,
It shoots about 900 ft a second in a 22cal. Doesn't seem very accurate but plenty accurate enough for hunting but I just shoot targets with it.
I have two of those crossman semi auto rifles and they ar e good for nothing.

I have a powerline 953 (~500 fps in .177, single pump pneumatic, indexing stick mag (clip?))

Because, hey, how much energy do you need for target shooting?

Paper really has that special bullet stopping strength :lol: . Since this is already posted and I don't wanna make another thread, what about the Gamo Delta for a second gun? I'm only going to use it for plinking and I don't want to spend much $.

i'm not expecting a lot of power from my rifle, i'll put it to it's full potential with the help of a friend who lives in belgium. he will send me the spring and piston to increase the power to 23 joules. what i really like is high precision shooting, at long distances...like, shooting beer caps at 20 meters, or sugar pyramids , even small flour bags lol these are funny when you put a little flame behing!! a huge blue flame come out.
I don't like hunting as i don't like to harm intentionaly.
i just can't wait 'til i receive it!!!! :shock: :shock:

Can someone post some pics of the groupings you do? I remeber back 6 months, we had fun with my younger brother (who is turning 16 on february 11th) and my uncle (who is younger than me by 7 months) and the air rifle...
We used to put some little apples on a rough-hew, and we were like, 15 meters away, we exploded all of 'em lol, or little ball-trap projectiles;
and from 20 meters, we were shooting little balsa-wood (for modelism), but it was so light and fragile, that we wouldn't here the hit, so we were just like "f**k i missed it again!!!!!" but one moment, we ran at the target (a 2" by 4" wood piece) and saw it was completely piecred by everywhere!!
The rifle was a simple spring-piston chinese made air rifle. approx 150 m/s
but still it was largely suffiscient for target plinking...
Please post pics!!!!!!!!!!

I have a Skiff a 3000 pistol by anics.
It's supposed to be the most powerful CO2 pistol.
It certainly beats all those 8 shooters.

I thought it was the most powerfull until I foond the Drulov Rada 9 mm ( works on a 12 gram!!)

I don’t shoot paper, and I don’t use a bench, I shoot free hand, with iron sights. And as for accuracy, all I know is I can hit a propane tank, those stubby green Colman gas heater cylinders, at over sixty yards. Yet for the life of me I can’t hit a squirrel sittin up in a tree about 10-15 feet… maybe I’m to close…

Here’s something y’all should try: take a full Coke can throw it up in the air and see if you can hit it before it hits the ground. As soon as weather permits I’m going to try that, I already can shoot an empty can out of the sky, but that’s with my dad’s Daisy 15xt, which is a 1911ish Co2 pistol with a long, heavy, trigger pull that feels like about 20lbs.

I got lucky my Gamo shadow 1000, the real one that shoot’s 1000fps (no offence), for about 75 buck u.s.
