How can I convince my mom to let me buy an airgun/pellet gun?

I'm 13 and really want a pellet gun just for target shooting in my backyard. I have had airsoft guns for a couple of years and have never gotten into any trouble with them. My mom just thinks its a waste of money because I already have airsoft to shoot targets with. The pellet gun that I want is on sale for 25% off this week only, so I want to buy it while its still on sale.

This is the gun I want: http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/browse/5/SportsRec/...

She just keeps saying she's not sure it if's a good idea or not.

So pleeeaseee How can I convince my mom to let me buy a pellet gun?

Update:

I live in Canada. FPS limit is 500 .

Update 2:

I live in Canada. FPS limit is 500 .

    Showing better judgement would be a good start.

    Spending $250 for a piece of junk won't do it.

    I would suggest getting your minor's license(12YO-17YO)

    Then finding a much better rifle to spend your money on.

    The Diana(RWS) 34 is only $269, that's not a sale price, and it's infinitely better than the rifle you were looking at.

    Well actually the limit is a muzzle velocity of 500fps "and or" a muzzle energy of 4.2ft-lbs.

    But, if you get your license like I suggested then you can at least use a more powerful air rifle or firearm. >check out the RCMP site above for info

    honestly i wouldnt spend the money on that gun. maybe its a good one but they claim its pushing the pellet at 450fps so its actualy probably more like 400. most airsoft guns shoot that fast. you may consider looking for one that shoots a bit quicker or just stick with the airsoft.

    but as far as convincing her. tell her air rifles dont fill the back yard with billions of bright plastic little bbs. another thing is at least here in the U.S. but if you get good at shooting an air rifle you can compete in competitions and stuff. thats a lot better than playing videogames

    Source(s): i hate air soft i like air rifles but they arent much fun i like my rim fire and center fire rifles best.

    the best explanation for this is it's a woman thing. my mama was the same way about my 1st true gun it took me 3 years im sorry to break it to you but usually its just best to go with what the woman says you just waste breath arguin let it go for now and stick with what you got the maybe she'll oughta let you get it or an even better one will come out!

    Source(s): dealt with the same thing wanting a 12 gauge!

    answers the phone and pretend someone called you and said they will kill you unless you buy their airgun from them.

    (This is what your mom will here)

    Hello?

    Oh no i tried to tell her... she won't let me.

    Don't kill me! Shes the one who won't let me get the pellet gun.

    Yes.... I told her they are on sale...

    Okay I'll tell her. Bye.

    (Then you say)

    Mom!!!!!! Some guy will kill you if you don't buy me a gun.
