Looking to buy a .177 air rifle, preferably something like a break-action spring-piston gun.
It needs to be relatively affordable (no super-expensive Olympic or expert hunter bullshit), decently accurate... and I'm not too concerned about the actual muzzle energy, since I plan on using this thing for targets, not vermin.
Any recommendations? I saw a second-hand Diana Model 34 in very-good condition earlier that looked nice (pic semi-related, not the one in question but the same make and model), but are there other air-rifles which would better serve my needs and be in the same order of magnitude of pricing?

Seargent Ramirez checked the sight lines on his rifle. All clear. Wind was blowing southwest at a velocity of 6 mph, and with a slight movement of his hand he adjusted the rifle to compensate for drift and windspeed. He calculated the distance to target, the ballistic drop of his bullet, and factored in the Bernoulli effect. All was clear, and all he had to do was take the shot. His spotter, Jenkins, announced the distance to target: 1.3 miles away. His name: Omar Khadr.
