really? go look up Bass Pro or Canadian Tire for some .177 cal air guns. If you're only going to be target shooting, it's much more economical to get something like a Daisy or a Remington. Well under $300.
Will be tons more accurate than a stock WELL bolt action rifle unless your target is only 20-30 feet from you, then what's the point.
what kind of personal property? unless you are in a rural area which allow for the discharge of guns/airguns you won't be able to sit in your yard and shoot.
where are you located? you'll need to check with your local bylaws to make sure you're allowed to target shoot.
