I'm looking for a cheap air rifle to sort out squirrels in my back garden as they've learned to avoid the cage traps (I think they're all now descendants of the ones who were never caught) and the rat who raids the compost bin. I assume he isn't alone. Ideally I need a silenced one as I have a lot of neighbours. I'm not going to be shooting at ranges longer than 15m, so I really don't think a scope is essential, and I don't need target-grade accuracy, I just want to knock over the odd rodent. Having done a little research, I've come across the Hatsan 900X, imported by Edgar Brothers, and what's more there's a shop near my work that has them in stock. Does anyone have any experience of these?
