    I wish I still had my Sheridan air rifle, hits hard and is quiet. Although my Dad said it sounded like a 22, I don't think it was that loud.

    My son has a Umarex .22 break barrel air gun that he hunts with. It sounds like a nail gun. He's taken squirrel, fox, crows easily at 35 to 40 yards with lead pellets.

    I love my break barrel air rifles! They are a quiet, cheap and fun alternative to being out at the range spending big bucks at sending lead down range. I've done countless hours of target practice, hunting and equipment testing with little to no money invested in it. Feels great to pick up 500 rounds for 15 bucks or less.

    I love my air gun as well. Super fun to shoot as well as cost effective.
    I believe strongly in the break barrel to. Highly powerful and you don't run out of compressed air. And don't have to pump like crazy if in a hurry.
    If I were to buy another one, I would definitely get the .22 caliber hands down. .177 is great and all but doesn't have the punch as a 22. If I remember right, some country's in Europe that have heavy gun control laws use air guns for hunting. I do suspect a new air gun will be in my near future.

    I've toyed with the idea of an air rifle. I have a BB gun that I got when I was 11, it works great but has no power to it. My only concern even with a break barrel air gun is that I doubt it would do much to a coyote.....

    Check on a Hasan. They come 357/9mm. In VA. they can be used for white tail deer. The .22 are also good for turkey and legal to hunt with.

    There have been many coyotes taken with a .22 break barrel air rifle. Give me a bit and I will post a link to some 2015 reviews of what's available.

    Little later than expected, but such is life..

    Personally, I find that practicing with these air rifles is a blast. Its cheap to shoot, not too noisy, and lets you hone in those breathing skills to keep your rifle steady. After I got my air gun, I quickly learned how to sight in a scope and discovered various things that I could blow up with it. As well as making pretty marks on a paper. Just recently I purchased a new scope for my old savage .308 and got that sighted in. I was able to take it out on the deer hunt last week with confidence.

    Air rifles are great for hunting but depending on the calibre and game they are less forgiving. I have taken out several squirrels with a .177 air rifle with no problems and even took a squirrel out at around the 40-50 yards range. When my shots started calling for more distance I changed from a .177 to a .22 to ensure I delivered enough foot pounds of energy at the point of impact to ensure a humane kill. I'm still dialing my .22 in and trying to find the pellet that it is happiest with. I just picked up 200 rounds at walmart yesterday for 5 bucks so I can't complain about the cost per round.
