This is the future of spring guns...the gas piston powerplant. No need to get pummeled with recoil or miss a target due to rough shooting characteristics. To find a breakbarrel that shoots this smooth, you'd have to pay a lot more money. The Crosman Titan is a bargain waiting to be discovered!

1st time novice shooter. Great gun, or beginer's luck...

I finally bit the bullet and ordered the Benjamin Titan late night on Sept 27, on a daily deal. I've always wanted a pellet gun and really wanted one when I discovered high power guns (900 fps) in Walmart, years ago. Gun came in a day earlier then expected on the 27th. and I immediately mounted the scope and couldn't wait to start shooting. Sept 30th I stopped by Walmart and got some .177 Crossman hollow points, and later that night I went to my friends house to show it off and hopefully come across a raccoon or two. Raccoons never did surface, but I was itching to shoot, so we just started shooting at trees. The 1st shot impressed the hell out my friend because he didn't know that a pellet gun can sound as loud as his .22. Soon we got bored shooting at branches in the dark so I got an empty 42 oz. cup out of my car, set it on top of a 3 ft mural and lined up about 15 yards out. It took about 10 shots between us before we started to hit the cup repeatedly. On my turn to shoot as a joke I mentioned "it would be cool if we could hit the straw sticking out the top" to which he replied "go for it!" I was like are you serious?, and he said "yeah, go for it." The gun is a bit heavy and hard to keep steady, but when I saw the cross hairs line up.... I pulled the trigger. We walked up to the cup and I couldn't believe it... I took a chunk out of it! My buddy was next, and made him the same challenge, he shot, I was sure he missed, we walked to the cup, and the hole was BIGGER!!! I couldn't believe it. I read all the reviews before ordering, about how the trigger and the scope suck... all of that may be true but I have nothing to compare it to as this is my 1st gun and I'm surprised as how we shot a drinking straw (AT NIGHT mind you) with only a street light post 20 yards or so. I don't know anything about sighting in a scope and I don't know if I have to. I'll try shooting it again tomorrow during daylight and if I thinks it's necessary, I'll Google it or YouTube it and learn how to do it. P.S. my buddy now wants a pellet gun, lol
Pros:1st gun. 1st. time shooter... I love it.
Cons:A bit heavy I guess, but really don't have anything else to compare it to.

This gun is sweet. It's noticeably quieter then my Whisper VH. It has a gentle recoil. The gun has an overall great feel to it. The only con is it's a little hard to break the barrel. You need to give it a pretty good tap to initiate the break. I highly recommend this gun for anyone wanting a quiet gun for pest control or target practice it does both very well.
