Well, I've been lurking around for a few days reading the various threads and I figured it was time to post.
I'm quite interested in taking up air rifles mainly just for plinking in my spare time. I don't have a lot of money available at the moment so I really can't afford to drop R10k on a rifle and various kit; and for that matter I'm not sure I'd want to spend that much on something I might not take up seriously. So I've decided to limit myself to R2k budget to start with.
So my question is, what should I be looking for? I assume a basic entry level springer, but I'm not too sure what I can get for that money.
A few things to consider:
I'm 190cm (6'3") tall; so I have fairly long arms and don't want to be cramped with a really short rifle? Is this even much of a concern?
My eyesight is terrible, so I need to purchase a scope as well; this will definitely affect what I can get as it needs to be factored into R2k.
I would rather buy something used since I understand you can get much better deals this way.
Any advice would be appreciated.
