What is the most powerful one pump (stroke) air rifle that shoots BB's and is a repeater? I've got pigeons setting up shop in the tree over my driveway and when I shoot them with my daughter's Red Ryder they just fly off to another branch. I was thinking about getting one of those Daisy 1000 rifles they sell at Walmart, but I'm really not a big fan of the single shot pellet format. I used to have a Daisy 880 and it was plenty powerful but 8 or 10 pumps for a shot gets old very quickly. Any ideas??
I'm starting to like the Crosman Nightstalker that was mentioned, the large C02 bottle seems interesting and the fact that it doesn't look like a regular rifle might be good if the neighbors happen to see me out there. I don't want a scope, how are the sights on this rifle?

The man specifically said 'that shoots BBs'. Yes, pellets are better, but not what he asked.

The 'right answer', I think, is the Crosman V350 (or 3500 the 'modern version', or the M1 carbine version) based on the Quackenbush No. 7. It uses a special valve to boost the air blast getting 350 FPS (hence the model name) in a game where nobody else gets more than 300.

25 or so shot mag. Works as fast as you can pull the barrel back and push it forward (can be done 'from the sholder' by most folks). Surprisingly accurate as well.

Kind of ugly, but the most powerful single stroke BB gun by a fair bit.
