Bought a Benjamin NP2 which is ok but I came to this forum looking to upgrade to something more powerful and more accurate.  After reading probably tens of articles and watching hundreds of youtube reviews, I'm still unsure, so I came here.

LOL, I know that feeling!  Welcome to GTA, there is a lot of good info on here, and even more conflicting opinions at times; ask me how I know. I love GTA, so don't get me wrong, you'll just have to read all the opinions and sort things out for yourself. I find a coin to flip to aid in making decisions is a good idea depending on the subject. NO, but seriously, welcome aboard.

What is your goal?  I mean you want more power to hunt?  Shoot further?  Break barrel or PCP? The correct match for your desires is out there, just spell out your needs and then sit back and watch the ideas come rolling in; this place is great for that.

Tell us more, enquiring minds want to know. Peace out.
