This review may be a little "wordy" but could be helpful to amateurs like me. First of all I am 75 years of age and shake like a dog crap'n a bowie knife so don't expect any of those "cover with a quarter" stories; I am lucky to hit a bull in the ass with a bass fiddle. At any rate, I decided to get a pellet rifle to get rid of pesky pigeons messing up the roof on my guest house. I bought a Gamo Bone Collector Bull Whisper and it came with about 50 pba pellets. I set up a target and managed to scatter pellets all over the back yard and hit the target occasionally but never near the bull. I then got on the internet and discovered that slower pellets were more accurate and bought several types and brands. I tried a total of three brands and six styles of pellets, searching for some accuracy. I decided to try these red tip pellets (mostly because they are pretty) and "voila", I began to hit the center of the target with regularity. Now I can put all of my shots in the bull at 20 yards and the groups are about 3". After developing this skill I was ready to slay pigeons but after a total expenditure of about $500.00 I discovered my wife likes pigeons, feeds them when i am not looking, and will not tolerate them being shot-------damn!
