Tac driver if you are patientBought this with money my patents and inlaws gave me for christmas. I was leary of break barrel air rifles cause I had a spring power air rifle that just wouldnt hold zero no matter what. This bad boy however, holds a group tight enough to cover with a dime. My son shoots competitive air rifle for school. He shot two pellets thru the same hole with this rifle. I am not that good, so my groups are about the size of a quarter at 30 yards. I did use a different scope though. The scope that comes with it is ok I guess, but I had a good CenterPoint 3-9 illuminated on my old rifle that I decided to use on the Hornet. The pellets we used that held the tightest group are the Gamo brand ones with the copper dome on the nose. And boy do they knock a hole in the plywood. Goes right thru 3/4" OSB plywood like it is butter at 30 yards and buries 1/2" deep in a pressure treated post behind the plywood. Only small gripe I have is it could be a little bit heavier in the stock to help steady your hold. I am definitely satisfied with my $149 purchase. Cant wait to see what this will do to some fox squirrels, raccoons, possums, nieghbor's cats.....

Nice air rifle for the price!Ive owned this rifle about a month and im pretty impressed! Its been years since ive shot a pellet gun and decided to get one to shoot with my son. This one was a lil too big for him so I got him a youth sized rifle. Ive only got it sighted to 30yrds and its pretty accurate at shooting a 3 inch target. Im sure ill get better cuz im still a lil shaky when I shoot. Ive read complaints about the sight but I think the sight is decent for what youre paying for. After around 80 shots this rifle starts breaking in and shoots well so dont get frustrated with the accuracy in the beginning.

ACCURACY AND POWERI have been into air rifles for a few years now and have shot out to 104 yards with my gamo big cat 1250 .177 cal with a hammers scope so now about this 22 gamo hornet let me tell you this thing is great right out of the box with the stock scope too locktite scope mounts ahead of time and was doing 1and a half inch groups at 23 yards with final adjustments and have shot out to almost 80 yards so far and hitting foldgers plastic coffee cans.The gamo scope has held true so far unlike there cheaper scopes this one has a nice 3x9 power but does not have index points as far as pellets it loves destroyer pellets for accuracy and power it had an average of 750 fps and 17.87 foot pounds of energy. This is based off crony figures. Hope this helps your buying decision.

Accurate, can't beat the price!I bought this a few days ago and I'm glad I did! With all these videos about people harvesting hogs with their air rifles I thought I'd give it a shot. I took it out this morning 10-13-16 and made a 12 yard headshot on a South Texas Javalina. Dropped him in his tracks. I am using the 14.3gr Crossman Premier Hollowpoints. They chronoed at 711fps out of my rifle. That's plenty and it got the job done.
