Well, I have decided that I "need" an air rifle. It must be 22 caliber to be legal for hunting in my State. I am leaning towards one of the Benjamin 392s as modified by Mac 1. I am basically ignorant about air rifles and have made this decision largely based on what I have read here. My use of the airgun will be plinking, pest control and small game hunting nothing larger than a cottontail rabbit. I like the idea of variable power that the pump up rifle provides. Is this rifle my best option or is there something better out there that meets my needs for about the same money. Thanks in advance.
