Welcome Jesse!
 "Good quality" around here take on many facets.
Some are happy with a $150 gun, others in the $500-$600 while others have guns WELL north of a Grand!
We're all in the same boat, why're you trying to make holes?

Welcome to GTA!

One of my favorite airguns  is a simple Crosman 1400.
I'm a big fan of pumpers, and my collection shows that.

You will find what you want, the choices are enormous in todays market.

Welcome Jesse.
 
Learning about airguns can seem to be daunting at times. Be patient & learn as much as you can before spending your hard earned money for a purchase. Hopefully, you will be happy with what you finally decide to buy. Lots of folks on this forum willing to help you spend your money. There are lots of options out there. Learn before buying & only then make your choice.

Have fun,

Paul
