I have been using a bee man silver bear, but it broke this summer, so yesterday i bought a beeman "pump master 760" you can pump it up as much as you want it it was 27 bucks at walmart. I was shooting it today and with 20 pumps it is very powerful, shoots quarter size groups, most of that is up and down. I was gonna give it to my sister to teach her trigger pull, breathing control and such, but Im gonna give her a camera case instead....hehe it is kinda flimsy but fine for shooting squirrels out to 15 yards or so. gonna try it on a grouse, but have a 22 pistol handy for incase it doesn't do the trick, which I doubt. maybe a rabbit would be better cause it won't have the thick feathers. It has crude open sights, but my question is, would it penetrate the feathers and hair and meat and git into the vitals of a rabbit or a grouse? I shot a squirrel with it and it went all the way through, at 10 yards or so. it sounds like a stinking 22 going off. and you can hear it hit hard, not sure if 20 pumps is more than they tested it at for their published velocity of 625. it sounds like it hits harder and faster than my bee man silver bear, and the velocity ratings were the same.
Should I try it?
