I have a Gammo Spring rifle in .177 with a RWS 4 powere scope on it, have had it for about 7-8 years. Mostly used for shooting on my basement range where I can shoot 10 meters. I really like it but have not tried it for hunting yet. Darn thing weighs more than most of my .22rfs.

I'd like to find a pellet rifle that could put down a coyotte. We have seen a ton of them this year and where we hunt I would not be confortable using a firearm. I do believe they are legal.

I seen just what your after while I was in Alaska. It was a 9 mm air gun and put a cast 129 gr. bullet throught a 2 x 4 and into the second. They were not cheap and you use a high presure hand pump or a pump that they use for scuba tanks to pump it up. I forget who made it, but you might gogle 9 mm air gun and see what happens.
