Depending on how fast you plan to get serious or how far you want to shoot you may wish to look really hard at the XS-60C from Flying Dragon Air Rifles. It is powered by CO2 so you should have no problem cocking the action. The rifle itself is quite accurate and the bolt for cocking is on the right side. Being CO2 it does work best in warm weather. My wife loves it. Her son and I think it's great fun, too.
