I have not owned an air rifle since my teens and now in my 50's I've decided this needs remedying, so I am going to purchase a nice new rifle. After reading many reviews and seeing dozens and dozens of you tube tests. I have settled on a Weihrauch HW laminate; but which caliber? .177 or .22 the answer would appear to me to be .20 Mostly I will be just target shooting but I will also have the opportunity to shoot rabbit and rats. The choice of pellet is limited with .20 but all of the pellets available are of good quality and are widely available.
So what is the opinion of the forum, would I be making a ghastly and expensive mistake going .20 or is it a sensible option.
