Dont ever buy a Daystate they are rubbish
Stick to Walther, Steyr, Weirhauch or Air Arms.
Scopes are a personal choice everyone's eyes and budget are different.
Try get down to a club and try as many scope and gun combos as you can as this will save you thousands of pounds in the long run, most of the guys are more than happy to share their trade sectets and let you try their air rifles.
Once you do buy stick to one gun and scope and practice as much as the wife will allow,
Range finding and reading the wind only comes with practice it's not something you can be taught.
Most of all have fun and enjoy it no matter how bad your scores are to start off they will get better over time.
