Hi all. I am wanting to get an airgun. Now that the ferreting season is over, i want to get into air gunning. So i will be using it to shoot rabbits, and any pigeons, squirrels etc if i get the chance. I have a budget of around £250. I know PCP rifles are better but dont think i would get one in my budget so will prob have to be a springer for justnow. Anyone got any sugestions?

I live near Glasgow. Incase anyone local is selling anything that fits what i need.

cant get much better than a BSA lighting xl for springers. there a little over your budget at £300 but they are very light and easy to cock.

if your going for a BSA get a normal lightning the XL Moderator is sh*t

Hi people. Sorry i never even realised people where posting in this, as i posted the same thread in the gen airguns section, and asked if this one could be deleted. woops. ended up buying a lightning xl tactical, then the other day got offered a Falcon FN19, and i had just remembered my mum was keeping money for me so i wouldnt spend it, i ended up buying that aswell, really wanted a pcp. so now iv got 2 lol. in two minds wether to keep the lightning or not, think i will. suppose its good to have a choice of guns.

thanks for all your replys

john
