    Do we start showing off in this thread, or wait for the new one? :mrgreen:
  9. I live near a stream and a set of allotments, few problems with rats so bought a air rifle for a couple hundred quid, one of those gas bottle 177 jobs, has one of those 12 slug mag type things and a silencer.

    Question, since the rats which come into the garden now and again simply laugh at me when the slugs bounce off them, failt to kill them, what would be a suitable air type gat to knock a big feckin rat over so it dosent get up?

    advice please, and no, I dont want to use any type of explosive device - air weapon will suffice
  10. .22 for slotting critters, preferably PCP, get closer and hit it in the head.
  11. use "BSA" vermin stoppers... there good at stipping anything under a hare .. and thats at 30 yards with a body shot,, 177,, but would not try it if not ok with aim.

    or better still get hold of a 22... use DYNAMIC air bullets 14:5 grain.. they have an arc in the air thats crazy ,,but they hit hard
  12. cheers lads
  13. well this is not going as good as i expected.. what do you think of anti tamper????
