anschutz 2000. oops...i thought you said, "under $2000". the least expensive one used by the junior team costs about $600...a feinwerkbau sidecocker. avoid anything with a break-barrel action. look for a side cocking model if accuracy is what you are after.

I got a Beeman 650GT from Dick's Sporting Goods for $100, and it suits my purposes fine (shooting .5 inch groups @ 10 meters). Of course, it's a break barrel. . .

You want a pellet gun, not a BB gun. In your price range there are many good guns. The key to accuracy is quality pellets. Avoid the cheapo chinese pellets. I have a $40 Chinese spring gun that shoots better than I do with quality pellets like RWS.

Its hard to beat a Gamo Hunter 220 combo. That includes a scope, and shoots 1000fps for $150. I love mine.

I have a RWS 350 Magnum which RWS claims shoots .177 pellets @ 1100fps. I am [blue]VERY HAPPY[/blue] with it. Thay also make it in .22 caliber. The Model 34 and 36 are more in your price range, around $200. The 350 magnum I paid i think $329.00. They are made n Germany. The 350 came with a two stage adjustable trigger...Definatly check them out, you wont be dissapointed!!!!

ijus picked up a .45 replica CO2 Daisy XT59, it is pretty powerful, and it came with a pretty cool aimpoint..it actually is pretty accurate at 20feet. makes for practicing with reddot sights pretty nice when i cant get to range..now to get my wife to let me setup tactical scenerio in the house..lol
