Spring piston guns can be difficult to shoot, hard on scopes, and should not be left ****ed. I have gone to the pre-charged guns. You might look at one of them, but the price doubles or better. The pump to charge mine is close to 200$ On the plus side, it is good for around 20 shots at 30 fpe after it is charged and accurate enough to stack pellets at 30 yards. The Gamo you were offered is a good deal if you can get used to the trigger. There is an aftermarket trigger that fixes that, but it is about 50$. I am interested in the gamo at 50$ myself.
