The perfect air rifle (for my very specific needs) might not exist. But maybe it does. And, if it does, you all know it.
I need a gun for pest control, primarily small birds such as starling and sparrows.
This will mostly be indoor work, with most shots 25 yards and under. Because it is indoors, I don't want too much power. I do outdoor stuff but already have that covered with my M-rod .25.
Spectacular accuracy is a must because I can not afford to miss or, worse, "wing" any targets. I will be shooting off rests, sticks, etc.
Supreme silence is not a must, as stealth will not be required. However, the quieter the better.
Safety is of utmost concern. I was leaning toward the Talon SS before I started hearing about the safety issue. I can't risk an accidental discharge.
Scope suggestions also welcome.
I really want to keep the cost of the gun and glass under $1,000.
All this said, I alos already have an M-rod .22 pistol. The power is right and love the silence. Just looking for something even more accurate. Maybe I don't need it.
