In hindsight, I should have bought a model 34.
Spring piston guns are tricky to shoot well. It is imperative to hold it fairly loosely, yet consistently with your front hand. Hold them too tight or rest them on a hard bench and they'll jump inconsistently, spraying the pellets all over. Mine is murder on squirrels when they're raiding my wife's birdfeeders.

Not that I'm a shooter but I do have a fascination with older firearms. I've had one of Buffalo Bill Cody's trick Winchesters in my grubby liberal paws and one of those octagonal barreled guide Winchesters. Big sumbitch that fires the same round as a Gatling. Too bad the guy I know won't let me fire the Gatling he has...

The RWS 34 is a nice gun.
My gun is a beast, but it's big & heavy + it jumps all over the place. Finn's gun a cool piece too.

Gas piston rifles are now the new big thing, taking over from springers it seems.

Yeah, the guys on the Diana site are all drooling over the new RWS RAM. Crossman has an interesting one too.
