What makes the Hornet Maxxim a great choice besides it being affordable, is its advanced features, such as the Whisper Maxxim sound suppression technology, minimizing normal shooting noise.

So very nice to see Ammoland remember air guns too! I recently bought an inert gas pistol to regain my shooting skills. I had a detached retina in my dominant eye and am now retraining my other eye. The nitrogen piston pistol I chose is an economical way to do this. They have come a long way from the pellet guns we had as kids!
