There are many good Airguns under 200$ in a springer or nitro.but Remember with a airgun the smaller the pellet(.177) the more accurate you need to stay on target for varments. The bigger the pellets(.20,.22,.25) yo can have a little more circle of error in hit a small animal. Preferably go with a .22 or.25 good hits and maximum damage. I have kill hits out to .45 yards with my Beeman x-2 springer with a round nose 14.3 gr pellet while my Hasan pcp gun fires a 22.5 with longest kill at 75 yds. Test pellets to.your airgun will let you know what it likes. Round nose and pointed usually shoot best.x2 on pyramid air.
