As long as you shoot well with it then I dont think there is a best.

Thats a mk1 BSA lightning, good guns let down by a bad trigger.that doesnt stop you bagging a few.
those rabbit stoppers are crap, stick with a good basic spring gun like your lightning

nice guns, tiny.
standard silencer is crap, so fit a HW or logun one,
shot count is low 40 in .22 but if you have a bottle handy no big deal.

During basic training, my Falklands-vet section commander answered a simliar question with this: The best rifle is the one you have in your hand when you need it.

By the looks of things, yours is doing the trick. 'Nuff said?

I would go for the air arms s410 or k. They are light, smooth to use feel like they are part of your body when hunting.

IMO, whatever you are used to. I've used the same rifle for 8 years, Falcon FN19 .20. In that time I've bought,then sold again several others but when it came to the crunch they stayed in the cabinet and my old faithful came out! The only exception is for close range ferals when i want low power to avoid damage to buildings. Then i use a little Crosman Ratcatcher. Looks like your doing ok with what you've got!

Good hunting!
