 If you want repeatable fun....not terribly accurate....but fun...the Daisy 25 pump rifle serves the purpose. Don't know if they still come with a flip up simple peep, a boon for old eyes. Get some of those Dust Bunny (?) frangible bb's if indoors or plain old copper coated with a suitable backstop/trap and have at it.

I can attest to the full auto bb guns wow factor, I'm going to do my own weathering job, and get a sling for my MP40. I've gotten pretty good with 6-8 round bursts for better accuracy. The blowback bolt and sound on this one is very realistic.

The model 25 I got from WM last year had the dual vee/peep flip sight. I had to make the hole a tiny bit larger for my eyes and how I shoot but otherwise it works very good. I actually got around to getting a small supply of the flip sights with the attaching screws. I plan to use one on a Red Ryder, except on it I plan to use the top stock screw to hold it in place.

First, decide if you want co2 or pump/spring action, otherwise itís apples and oranges here.  In co2, Umarex has the new lever action, and a new Ďstormí that shoots a zillion bbís rapid fire.  Different ways to hit what you are aiming at.  Pyramid has the John Wayne bb rifles that look like a cut above the red ryder, and you never run out of co2.

I thought the Lil duke looked interesting too. I posted about it but the one review was not good http://forum.daisymuseum.com/airventuri-lil-duke-bb-gun_topic7554_page1.html
