    Be patient and save a little more, you do not want to be dissapointed with your first buy.

    Yeah Island. R600 is likely to only get you upset me thinks. Save some more and dont settle for a gun you are not happy with. Are you going to just plink or are you going to shoot some hunter field target as well? If so you must hang on a little longer.

    Island,

    Unfortunately, R600 will only buy you a Chinese spring air rifle (rifle only with no scope or accessories) which is pretty much an entry level plinker. I see that you are based in DBN, in which case you should contact Andre at Hillcrest Gun Shop (HGS on forum). An entry level PCP Air Rifle fit for competitive shooting will set you back around R4500 excl a scope which will cost a further R1000 upwards. Farmer advertised an entry level PCP rig for approx R 7,000 all inclusive. You may have to save a little longer...

    ps: every so often, there are used air rifles advertised on this forum so keep your eyes peeled...

    Depending what you want to do with it a gamo cfx is a good all rounder at a about R2500 then a axtra 800-1000 for a scope but for target shootin the gamo delta fox is a good gun for target shooting

    Island, I was in the same shoes not so long ago. My advice will be . Don't buy it new. Wait for a good deal on this forum and then rather buy that. In general people that spend more than R2000 on a rifle tend to take care of it and the 2nd hand condition of most guns are pretty good. Please note I said "In general" and "most guns". You will get exceptions.

    O and before you buy: MAke sure the guy who advertised the kit is a well known member to this forum...Had a bit of a wake-up-call a while ago

    Vuilhond , you are right.i have seen an ERB however that i would not even fill, never mind buy.

    Always try before you buy and see what you are buying.

    Never looked at that, but how much could shipping be?
    Just a question, never had to do that yet, fortunately.
