    20 yard shot 177 cal open sights sitting on a tear rail in my barn. Breasted out cut in strips wrapped in bacon salt pepper on the grill.

    Sounds good!

    Air guns are a barrel of fun around the farm. I've spent a many day looking for any kind of varmint to pop.

    Sounds like a hell of way to knock out a tree rat to a young dog, too.

    I was hell on tin cans with my Red Rider. Of course, you had to allow for that curve and dip to hit anything.

    I had a brindle cur, and a RWS in .177 back then. ABSOLUTELY had a blast!

    If it's your kind of thing, here are a few videos of my kills with a Marauder:

    I gave up filming (and shooting) years ago, but it's a .22 Benjamin Marauder that is run on CO2 with a Handycam in a Orion SteadyPix mount. I'd open up the screen and use that as a scope.

    Great setup, I couldn't recommend a Marauder more. Top off the reservoir with a paintball CO2 tank and you're good to go for about 20 rounds. The magazine holds 8(?). Deadly silent and much more accurate than a springer, but there are multiple tuning options. I enjoyed that much more than a regular .22. Not much more than a decent springer if you can catch it on sale or get a refurb-ed model.

    I had too many people cry about the invasive species in my neck of the woods is protected in their area, therefore whatever I'm doing is illegal, so I quit filming.

    You may jest, but Lewis and Clark toted along a .46 caliber air rifle on their journey.


    Truth be told, I do think it was more entertainment and touting technological achievements to the Indians than for hunting/protection.
