Buy you a Marauder gen 2 in 25 cal very quiet and very accurate. They are a PCP pellet gun
The Marauder has always been a great recommendation.  It's a lot of PCP for the money.  The Fortitude appears to be a downgraded Marauder.  No wood stock option, no .25 option and a factory trigger that needs a little work.

It sounds really stupid, but check your local laws. Pellet guns are illegal in lots of spots. Daisy won’t even sell them in King Co. There are a bunch of municipalities that have written their laws in such a way that they’re illegal to shoot anywhere but a range. Just another one of MANY reasons I don’t live in King Co.

Oh why did you have to share this....  must not get into trouble with the wife

Is that actually a 15 lb airgun?  Holy cow would need an African packer to carry it.

ETA- Airgun Depot lists it at 8.8 lbs.

You sure about that, might want to let Tractor supply and Walmart know as these are in stock in Kent and Renton  :dunno:

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Daisy-Powerline-880-Air-Rifle-with-Scope-177-cal/40556631

And i concur, MANY reasons to not live in King co.
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

Pretty sure. Outside of local ordinances like Renton and Burien etc banning them, manufacturers won’t ship to certain cities and counties. In fact, the way the verbiage is written you could technically argue that Nerf guns are illegal.

Outside of that, the fact that a store sells it doesn’t make it legal. Expandable broadheads were sold here forever and only legalized like 3 yrs ago. Tannerite is illegal anywhere but private property. Barbed hooks aren’t legal in some spots. The onus falls on the buyer. 

9.50.200 Unlawful use of air guns – Penalty.
(1) It is unlawful for any person to point or shoot an air gun at any person or property of another, or to aim or discharge such weapon in the direction of the person or residence of another, while within such range as to cause or inflict injury to the person or damage the property of another.

(2) As used in this section, “air gun” means and includes the following: air gun, air pistol, air rifle, BB gun and toy or other guns of any kind or nature when so designed, contrived, modified and used to propel, by compressed air or spring-loaded plunger, any pellet, dart, hard-tipped arrow, bean, pea, BB, rock or other hard substances a distance of more than 25 feet with sufficient force to break windows or inflict injury upon persons or animals.

(3) Any person convicted of a violation of the provisions of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and, in addition to any other punishment imposed by the court, the court shall direct that the weapon so used in violation of the provisions hereof be confiscated, and shall thereafter be disposed of in accordance with statutes or ordinances governing the disposal of confiscated or found weapons. [Ord. 63 § 64, 1993]

I'm in the market for a new pellet rifle, are there really any quiet ones out there? Any recommendations ? I currently shoot a very nice RWS but it's pretty loud. Thanks in advance .
Fliesitdies

With the majority of ‘spring piston’ pellet guns (RWS is one) you have to use a pellet over 9.5 grains to get sub sonic in the .177 caliber. That will eliminate a LOT of the noise. 10.5 is better. Then it takes finding the pellet it likes and working on your ‘Artillery Hold’, which the ‘single pump’ spring piston guns require to shoot accurately. Good luck!
