OT:Anybody else varmint hunting with airguns?

Living in Kali the "real" guns don't get all that much use but living a block from the National Forest gives plenty of airgun opportunity. Was just wondering if I am the only freak that enjoys snipping rabbits, squirrels, and starling?

I shot at squirrels all the time in my back yard (borders a park). Hard as hell to kill. You can hit them all the time but they dont die. Just kinda run funny for a while

Sold the CJ... Cant wait for the next time around!

Used to do it all the time. Squirrels are only legal in season (in TX). You can be pretty lethal with the higher power air guns (1000 fps). Almost as good as a .22 for small varmint. Starlings are protected I could almost guarantee it. Make sure you check out your state and federal game laws. It is very easy to become a federal felon even with a pellet gun.

I don't know if popping at squirrels in my mom's back yard with a Daisy is "Varmint Hunting" but I've done it. Takes place of the commercials on tv!
Most of my varmint (prarie dogs) hunting has been in South Dakota with custom AR-15's and my Loooooong range bolt gun, .22-250 Ackley Improved. Nothin' gets away from 52 gr. HPBT's going 4000 fps!

If it's tourist season...why can't we shoot 'em?
