    If yer mostly plinkin' at reasonably close range, I'd go with the cheapest ammo.

    I had a .177 Crossman pump as a kid (still have it) and shot mostly BBs. Killed a lot of small birds with BBs (lol, our cat would follow me whenever I left the house carrying it).

    I have been plunking with a Sig "We The People" CO2 BB pistol lately. I am very impressed with it. The blowback uses up some of the energy but I am doing mostly 4in circle at 30ft for the first 50 or so shots with a cartridge. It is pretty realistic in virtually all aspects and the recoil is similar to a 22/45.

    Just watched a segment of American Air Gunner tonight.
    They were cutting cards edgewise at 75 yards and cutting Q tips at 50 yards. 20 round magazine with a bolt action.
    This particular rifle was a .30 cal Umarex. I was impressedwith the accuracy.

    I just ordered a Umarex Origin .22 PCP. This will be my first PCP, we'll see if I can handle the pumping.

    WOW!!! I have not posted since July and this thread lives on...I was coming back to it to ask if anyone ever modded their crosman 1377/1322/2289? I am looking to add more power with the same pumps. Some of these modders design their guns to make more power with more than 10-15 pumps (like up to 50!!!), but I would like to know the best approach to maximize power "per pump" so I can pump 10 times and have a good gain over a stock gun at ~10 pumps.

    I will say, I tried 20 pumps and got ~700fps from a stock 1377 pistol! And ~600 on a 2289 (22 cal). I just would like to get that with 10-12 pumps and I know there is a way to do it with mods but some of the mods lower power until a LOT of pumps and I definitely don't want that.

    Anyone who can tell me how is my hero...too much info out there about these and haven't found it in plain english yet...I "think" I need a flat top piston (and maybe a valve too???).
