The ultimate rifle for every urban shooter should be one of the air guns from Airforceairguns.com.

I had the opportunity to review one for you. The one I have is called the Condor SS in .22 caliber. This is a pre-charged pneumatic air rifle. This is an epic rifle that is not a firearm but a serious choice for long range shooting, getting rid of pest and small game hunting.

You know that in a urban and suburban environment a firearm cannot be used to get rid of rats, rabid small game or target practice. You can do all that with this rifle.

The one I have shoots so fast that the lead pellet would have sounded like a .22 going off if it weren’t shot through a suppressed 18-inch barrel. Airforce airguns calls it Sound-Loc® reduction technology. It uses a “pony” like diving tank that locks into place and is a part of the design. I used a full size SCUBA tank to charge it to 2500 PSI. The tank holds 3000 PSI.

I went to Columbia Scuba, in Columbia, Maryland to rent the tank in order to charge the gun. The air went into the special designed nozzle without a hitch in a few minutes.

It has settings that allow you to shoot it and different settings. I had it moderately high and used about 15 single shots before the velocity decrease was noticeable. It still rings my .22 caliber steel target at 50 yards after that. I have shot about 25 shots through it now and have about a 1000 psi left. I know “your mileage may vary” but this gun is epic to me.

I would like to see a shooting club (hint hint) emerge of airforce airgun aficionados appear in my area.
