Gratuitous Gun Pr0n #84...
Nice BB guns.
High-end competition air rifles like this are to your basic "Daisy Red Ryder carbine-action, two hundred shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time" as the Lockheed SR-71 is to a Piper Cub. They're mechanically capable of basically stacking match pellets one atop the other from ten meters away. Bare rifles can cost like an FNH SCAR and then you'd need to add about the cost of a Glock for the sights; high-end rifle/sight packages are encroaching on "nice stack-barrel shotgun" prices.
Still, perhaps due to the ease in finding places to compete, it's the fastest growing youth shooting sport according to the CMP. .
