This is my third air rifle and I use it for target practice in the back yard. I wanted a rifle with about 600 fps, since I have neighbors and 1000 fps is a bit much. There are very few break barrel rifles with this velocity. The Stoeger is relatively quiet and has very little recoil, although it's best to use the artillery hold. It weighs about 6 lbs and has front and rear fiber optic sights. It's is producing 1/2 inch groups at 25 yards, which was a pleasant surprise. Normally you have to pay 2-3 times more for that kind of accuracy. It sells for under $100, so I consider it a great bargain. The company is very responsive and it comes with a 2 year warranty. I highly recommend it except for hunting. I don't agree with hunting, but for those who do hunt, a rifle with more power should be used for a humane kill.
