    At lot of the good GAMO Air Rifles have pellet velocities well above the speed of sound, which is, 1,125 ft./sec.

    The silencer helps reduce the "crack" of the supersonic shock wave. For subsonic pellets, I don't think the silencer will do much as the action is probably as loud as the pellet.

    I have a GAMO Bone Collector, 1250 ft/sec, and it's a hoot to shoot!

    Some of the spring rifles can be loud. That Can be a big deal in the suburbs.

    Less than $200 when my wife bought it for me. I just plink with it, but it seems to have quite a bit of power. I can't comment on accuracy, because we all know a gun is only as accurate as the firer, and I don't get enough practice shooting.
    I'll mostly target shoot. Those older style Crossman are classics.

    Air Rifles

    Any one into air rifles?

    I have been looking at getting an air rifle for light target and rabbit use.

    I'd like to stay under $200, maybe a little more.

    From what I've seen so far the .22 looks like the best bet.

    Most of the rifles I've seen that get good reviews, get bad reviews for the included scopes.

    Any thoughts?
