I'd like to get one just not sure if I want the 22 caliber or the 25 caliber. mostly going to be shooting crows And other varmints. What kind of experience have you guys had with them?

I have a 22 Crosman Venom dusk and a Crosman NPSS in 22. They are both good shooters and plenty for crows,rabbits and squirrels. The 25 cal is a little expensive to shoot,but it would sure do the job. Make sure you get a good air gun scope that will handle the double recoil the air gun produces.

I have a Crosman Titan GP ( 1200'/s) .177. It has great accuracy . It will go through a detergent bottle at 15 yds . I have yet to kill a squirrel in my backyard. Maybe they run off and die , but have had no confirmed kills. I wish I had purchased a larger caliber .

Re: benjamin nitro

Second thought, spend the money on an excellent .17 HMR and you will be happier . A .17 HMR , 17 Gr @ velocity should blow up if it even hits a twig under 50 yds ? I'm trying to understand the airgun thing.

Re: benjamin nitro

I have a 17 hmr. Looking g for something to shoot in town. Crows like to eat my dogs food. So as long as I'm feeding g them I figure ill shoot them too. I'm thinking a .257 pellet gun would be pretty sweet

Re: benjamin nitro

If you shoot one crow in yard , you probably won't have them back for a month or more. They're smart.
