« on: January 24, 2017, 05:32:07 PM »
If the PGC make the 17 cal. and the 22 cal. Air guns leagle. Who will use them and for what?

What gun will you use? And how far can you shoot and kill a squirrel with your gun.

I'll use a 17 cal. I'm not as good of a shot as I was in my younger days. I would probably keep the distance to 40 yards or less.

I have been pondering the idea. These new models are not the same as the old daisy BB guns. The use would be for rodents.........or maybe pick'n apples. Might need some train'n from Hern though. ::) ::) 8)

There is a pellet gun balistic program you should look at. It is called
Chair Gun pro and is a free download app.
It is a must have to understand pellet rifles.

I have various air guns. But my "go to" rifle is the Wicked Air Rifle .30cal. (Custom USA Made) Deadly accurate out to 120+yards. On a good day, I can do 1"-1.25" groups at 100yds.
