My 7 yr old daughter wants a pellet rifle [target/plinking]

I'd like something pretty quiet in .177 and under $150.

Any ideas?

The Air Venturi Bronco might fit the bill. It has a short length of pull, is pretty light and cocks easily and a quite a good trigger all for around $130. It's one to look at.

Bought my son the Diana RWS Schutze for his tenth b-day. Easy to
cock, accurate, with tru glo sights. 500 FPS is still deadly on squirrels up close.

Thank you!

I'll give them two rifles a look-see grin
