Episode 22 – How to select the right airgun: Pt. 2 – Small game hunting
Hunting is one of the top reasons people buy air rifles. They’re safer than firearms because the projectiles don’t travel as far as those from a firearm, and they’re also not as loud as most firearms. That makes them ideal for suburban areas, where small game such as possums, raccoons and woodchucks often invade. Watch the video to find out how much power and energy you’ll need in order to humanely dispatch small game. Accuracy is important, too, so be sure you select an air rifle that can put 5 out of 5 shots in a 1″ circle. If your airgun can’t do that, you should select another gun that can. Below are the guns mentioned in this video.
