This is a great offering from Crosman.  This is bundled as part of their “bugout backpack” kit and it is a great little gun.  The performance may be a little shy of what’s really ethical for hunting, but with a well placed shot, you may still get the job done at 10 yards.  Trying to take small game beyond that may be an issue.  The trigger pull is a little stiff at 5 pounds 10 ounces.

*Max DB is measured across multiple shots while indoors. The stated
