A new airgun for a beginner!

Postby TheLoneWolf » Sun Dec 16, 2018 12:29 pm

Hello Fellow Air Gun Enthusiasts!
I'm a 15-year-old teen who lives in Bihar and wants to get into the air Gun hobby. I want to get a good air rifle for about $250, I also need recommendations for a good and cheap rifle bipod or rifle rest and scope.
What type of rifle would be good for me?- PCP Rifle, Nitro Piston Break Barrel Rifle or Co2 Rifle?
How's the Polaris Nx100 from Precihole Sports?
The PCP rifles Precihole has are just too pricey.
I can try and import the rifle too from PyramidAir since they now ship to India as well, but when I click on 'Indian Shipping Guidelines' on their website I get a response saying this promotion has ended, so can anybody tell me about the Indian Shipping Guidelines for import of a .177 caliber Air rifle to India?
I also want to join the local Rifle Club, the Magadh Rifle Club, but one of my friends who to there told me that they would start accepting applications only in February of 2019, so I'll wait. Btw, how can I apply and what is required for me to apply to the local Rifle Club?

Please help me out guys, I'm a little confused since I'm a beginner in this hobby. I just want a air rifle that feels like a real gun. Perhaps Co2 gives a real-rifle-feeling? Not sure though....

Hello and welcome!

I am also very new in AR scene. Like you, I was also confused about the type of AR to get as the first time user.
And, I had the same experience with the PyramydAir website.

I reasoned that a springer would prove to be a good starter AR to learn the basics because they are cheaper, easily serviceable, and since they are said to produce more vibrations; they will help lay a stronger foundation.

Precihole AR’s get a lot of recommendations from the experienced shooters here. So, they must be the deal.
But, I went ahead and bought myself a SDB Artemis. I also have a running thread on it.

I tend to go with my heart, and; a newcomer’s heart usually gets set on something pretty and reputedly powerful.

Precihole is a fine airrifle. I had no experience with other Indian made air rifle. My precihole not even once made me to think of other guns, in it's price range. So I can vouch for precihole.

Also pellets play an equal roll in accuracy. You need to find the right pellet for the gun.

Normal airrifle for beginners.......I think precihole is fine air rifle for beginners but everybody will not able to begin with this bcoz of its price.So under 4k there is many Indian airrifle which are better for beginners.IHP national 35/25(now not available),SDB(which are under5k),AKagni,New Diana 35.....etc many lower budget rifle .I think it will help the beginners for this hobby.After this beginners should go with other special one.Accuracy is always come with practice... practice.. practice.Without practice costly rifle will be worthless.
