First thanks for the help. I'm new here and this is my first thread. Ok, here goes. I'm purchasing a pellet rifle for my 12 year old and am looking for a semi-auto model. At first I narrowed it down to the Crosman-66 Powermaster and the Daisy 880-powerline. I liked the Crosman as it fired semi-auto (kinda) but was hard for him to pump. He was partial to the Daisy however it loads one at a time and after an hour my fingers looked like they'd been dipped in ink. Ok, now I'm considering a CO2 as these (from what I've seen anyway) seem to be the only semi-auto pellets out there. Any help or suggestions would be great.
