So if I'm to get a new rifle what would you all say it's the best air rifle for hunting anything from doves to rabbits ar a little bigger?

Let's stick to .22 cal.

And thinking of shoots over 50 yards



So I want to hear you're opinions and experience.

Its tough in NJ . most have shrouds or "silencers"
I have a Daystate in .22 which will outshoot any .22 powder burner out there on a calm day.
One of the best air rifles for sure. about $3000 with a good scope.
I also have a Marauder air rifle in .22 for the money its plenty good enough for hunting small game.
I am a PCP snob for me they shoot so much easier than a spring gun. most air guns will shoot small game at 25 yards and under.

If you are talking about air gun hunting in The Peoples Republic of NJ your choices for high end air guns are limited. Like Slayer mentioned, you cannot have any type of silencer or shroud that muffles the shot sound. One of the nice things about air gun hunting is being able to be quiet. Leave it to the socialist state to screw that up too. Daystate, Air Arms, FX, Hatsan, Airforce make some really nice guns that are tack drivers with the right ammo. As for springers, one of the best deals is the Diana model 48 in .22 it runs under 400 bucks has plenty of punch and is not suppressed. On the down side if you cheap out on your optics the gun will beat your scope apart. PCP guns have no recoil and as a result can get away with cheaper scopes(Tasco etc.) but the down side is what you get for air supply. Hand pumps work fine but if you shoot a lot that pumping shit gets old fast. High pressure compressors run around a grand plus. Check out Pyramydair.com, Air guns of Arizona, air guns of Utah to get an idea of what is out there.
