Hi I am returning to air gunning after many years away. I have the usual question.
.177 or .22 for hunting?
This question gets asked more than any other, so I created a thread where the pros and cons for each are laid out.
*** Warning the Graham brothers in the Cheltenham area scamming ***
The Graham brothers are sill actively scamming people. Do not send money or your gun to anyone in the Cheltenham area of Gloucestershire. Only deal with anyone in this area face to face.
Never send payment via paypal to anyone living in this area. He may claim the gun must have got lost in the post and tell you to claim back from paypal.
When paypal find out it was a gun, you won't be getting anything back.
Both are fine at limit.
I prefer .22..

Hi, welcome back !
No one can correctly answer your question, only you can decide but I guess you have already worked that one out.
I could glibly say go out and buy one of each but its your money not mine and I've no right to state that.
Join a club and/or discuss the issue with as many like minded shooters taking the opportunity to shoot with as many guns as you're offered and then make the choice. It my guess that along the journey you'll end up with "one or two" air guns anyway and by then you will know !
And the answer is .177.
Hi, welcome to the forum.
.177 first then add a .22 later.
Or....... go for .20 and have the best of both worlds
