or sling shot or pellet gun? I've had a lot of fun, shooting flies with a rubber band. :-) It aint legal to shoot game most of the year, So it has to be inanimate targets or varmints most of the time.

i used to shoot a lot of .177, but to get the accuracy I wanted I had to use relatively high-end pellets that cost almost as much as .22LR did; so I pretty much abandoned the pellet rifle.

Nowadays, the cost difference would definitely swing more in favor of the pellet rifle, but I simply prefer a real gun. Mostly what I shoot anymore is 9mm and .223, with only occasional 22 use.

so what level of accuracy do you want? Wifey gets 1" for 5 shots at 10 yds, standing, about half that from prone. Scoped,

Squirrels & birds out to 50 yards, give or take. My pellet gun would do it if my holdover was right (it's only a .177 and drops at that range), but it would only do it with the higher-end pellets which at the time actually cost more than the .22 stuff.

Pictures please, this shouldn't be a problem as she is allowed to touch firearms.
