If you're like most shooters, your very first "gun" was probably a Daisy BB gun. But you can do much more with an air rifle than just learn the basics of safety and marksmanship; you can be a serious shooting sports competitor as well. That's why Daisy Outdoor Products keeps updating their line of "grown-up" air guns suitable for competition...and their latest, the new Model 599 10-Meter Competition Air Rifle, promises to be a boon to competitors everywhere. The 599, a .177 caliber gun, allows competitors to shoot the entire match without having to recharge.

The 599 10-Meter is clearly designed to meet the exacting standards of shooting sports competitors. With a beautiful ambidextrous beechwood stock, vertical and length-of-pull adjustment, adjustable comb, sling rail and straight-pull T-handle, this air gun looks like it'll be a joy to handle for both right- and left-handed shooters. Plus, you'll be able to adjust trigger weight down to as low as 1.5 pounds, as well as adjust the trigger for perfect positioning, right or left. There's a pressure gauge and quickfill, hooded front sight with diopter rear sight as well as an integral dovetail scope rail.

Interested? You'd better work fast: The Model 599 is available only through www.daisy.com, and only 300 rifles are available for 2018. Preorders are being taken now by calling (800)-713-2479 and product ships on December 19. Cost is $595.
