Sorry for the long post!! I am an avid gun enthusiast, but newly venturing into BB / Pellet gun segment and have all these queries.
I saw this beautiful Beretta 92FS, Blue
at one of the arms dealers for Rs 46,000
!!! Isn’t this a bit steep!??
The Crosman CO2 cartridge is costing me Rs. 250 each and a pack of 500 flathead 0.177 pellets for Rs 200.
I have a few questions / doubts where I need help from senior IFG members:
1. Which is a better gun? A BB gun or a pellet gun
like the model mentioned above? (Please see link in next question) - keeping in consideration the following points -
A BB gun can fire more rounds than a pellet gun.
BB Guns come with Blowback action - It sure looks very elegant but does it mean more maintenance? Do pellet guns come with blowback too? In the longer run, is Blowback good or bad?
Piercing power of a pellet gun is better than that of a BB gun. Correct?
This arms dealer can only get me a Walther (PPK or a CP99) if I go for a BB gun - both of which I do not like much because of their small form factors!
Any place in New Delhi for BB guns?PPK

2. What would be the right price for a gun like Beretta 92FS, Blue in India (New Delhi)?
I know the same gun is available at Pyramydair (http://www.pyramydair.com/p/beretta-fs9 ... -gun.shtml
) for under $200. Would finally cost me around $350 including duty and shipping - which is not even half the price in India!
3. Can someone please list the dealers where replica guns (BB and Pellet) would be available in Delhi with indicative approximate prices?
4. Is it wise to risk it and take a chance ordering a gun from Pyramydair?
It’s the only online store I know of that can ship to India, provided the gun clears the customs. I'd only be ordering the gun (and pellets maybe) and no CO2 cartridge knowing the issues with compressed gas canisters in air freight. Please note I am NOT
a member of any rifle clubs yet and definitely do not want to get tangled in the law. Also, sure wouldn’t want to lose my money, with the gun getting confiscated at customs!!! Has anyone ordered a gun before from Pyramydair?
Thanking all of you in advance for all your valuable comments. Please do pitch in!!
Have a wonderful 2011 ahead. Party safe and DO NOT carry your guns while partying!!
