Picked up a Gamo whisper Silent Cat .177 cal. pellet rifle @ WalMart for $69.99. Marked down from regular price of $144. Most of their pellet rifles at the store were clearance priced. Another Gamo was down from $244 to $119. A couple others were marked down also.
It has quite a crack using alloy pellets. Supersonic @ 1200 FPS. Only hear the spring when using lead pellets that travel subsonic around 1000 FPS
WalMart doesn't have it on their website
Gamo website 

This is not suitable for home defense,
Powerful enough to hunt small game while still quiet & cheap to plink around the backyard with.

Good way to scare unwanted animals off your property. Just like using a firecracker, but much easier/safer.

  Isn't firing w/o pellet a no-no as it damages the seal (or something internal)?

 

wreck the seal and break the spring or whatever it has, yes.

Coworker went to get one at a different WalMart. He said it wasn't marked down but when he had it scanned it came up at the reduced price

Don't dry fire it! Why would you do that?!

Might be this one:

Not available at any of the stores anywhere around me.

I picked this one up on clearance for $119, which I thought was a pretty good deal:
