Obviously the word REAL is being used relatively. I don't want to get chastized for calling a bb gun a fake. But what is a good (and well priced) pellet rifle. I am looking for something that you can actually hunt with?
I've got an old RWS 34 .177 caliber that I used to use for short range rabbits quite a bit. It throws a pellet out at 1,000 fps and smacks em pretty good. I think I paid about 140 over 15 years ago for it.
A quick check of Cabela's shows a new one on sale with a scope and everything selling for 249 right now.

Wearing snake leggings, I crawled on my hands and knees through the briars and the brambles and bushes where a rabbit wouldn't go. I found a spot of blood here and there but never the pig.
