I hunt small game and rodents with an air rifle. Like to carry it around the property just to keep shooting since I don't want to waste ammo with the cost. I have a Walther 177 cal.

Lots of videos on air gun hunting. I just watched several. Even watched a few on shooting long range with an air rifle. Interesting!

Squirrels off the bird feeder, chipmunks in the summer. I have some cans hanging in the branches in the back yard and practice in good weather. Can get a lot of practice in odd times. I think there is a lot of airgun hunting in the UK.

The way finding ammo is going, we all may be airgun hunting before long.

Just found out today that migratory grackles are covered under federal guidelines but starlings are legal to shoot year round in Massachusetts.

What's the difference between a Grackle and a Starling? Do you have to shoot one and look close to tell?

Grackles are the common Blackbird and the red winged Blackbirds.

But for the eyes grackles are all black and starlings have a lighter beak and pinkish legs.

Grackles are Grackles, they’re purplish with long tails and not legal. Blackbirds have short tails and are a flat black and prolly not legal to shoot. Red wings are obvious cept that the females are brown with stripes and not legal. Starlings look different and you can shoot all you want. Look them up to make sure.

I use a FX Crown in 22 caliber for starlings and during Squirrel season, I really enjoy eating the squirrels.

I bought a Benjamin Trail NP2 for pest control, plinking and to just have an alternative in situations like now, ammo shortage etc.. I did the popular upgrades and purchased the common pellets that perform. It took three tries to get a scope that would live on it but it’s way bigger than it should be as effective shots won’t exceed 35 to 45 yards. The biggest problem is consistency (or the lack thereof). I have not mastered the artillery hold so this heavy air rifle sits in the corner.

I have 2 FX impacts 25 cal and 35 cal.. They will both shoot right at 1 inch groups if I do my part at 100 yards and it is usually a 10 shot group. So squirrels and birds are no problem at that range.. Here are allot of folks where I live getting into Air Gun Hunting.
