    I've had it!!!

    I'm gonna kill that ###### ####### bird!!!!!!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    I'm normally a very nice person, but this ######## has stimulated my amygdala and he's gonna PAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So anyway, what pelletgun do the sportspeople here recommend that I get? I want to get a rifle (for greater accuracy) that can be hand pumped (so i don't have to buy co2 gas cartridges) but that's cheap. I've shot pellet guns before (once with my uncle) so I know how to aim, I just don't know what to buy. A website would be useful, but so would any advice that you can give.

    Thanks in advance.

    well, my most favorite is my daisy power line 880. i got it from walmart. got an adjustable scope. and the setup is really accurate. don't remember the exact price though. it shoots bbs (cheeper) and .177 pellets (more accurate) the pellets must be loaded 1 by 1 though. as most pellet pump guns. hope this helps. here is the web site with the rifles...

    I agree with adnedarn.

    My first bb/pellet gun was a Daisy, and I have fond memories of plunking away at cans and paper targets with it.

    My father used it to kill a grackle that was pecking at one of our dogs when it was sick (dog recovered, Grackle did not). So a hand pumped daisy from walmart will do ya. (no waiting period I think either&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Happy hunting.

    If you want to kill a small animal get one of the multipump ones, I think they are around $30+. For just injuring or scaring away animals get a cheap Red Ryder type daisy for about $10-20.
    I had the Crosman Powermaster Air Rifle 664SB but I didn't like the scope so I took it off. It lasted about 10 years until somehow the air resevior busted and it no longer held the air I pumped into it. It was strong enough to kill a bird with a good shot in the upper body, but If I was going to kill a bird nowadays I'd use a 22 caliber or better to make sure I don't just injure the bird and it has to fly somewhere and die a long drawn out painful death.

    You could also get a hand gun style of pellet gun also. But it requires CO2 cartriges. But they are not expensive and they last a life time! So say you bought 10 in a pack you got 10 for as long as you like (or as long as they are still in the box) You might have a war with this bird.

    Thanks everyone.

    BCK

    hehe [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I know that I'm lucky since I can keep my Neps outside, and there aren't any bears or anything like that around here, but this little thrush is really doing some damage. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] He (I know he's male since he has a red beak) has already destroyed 5 pitchers on my ventrata, 3 pitchers on my truncata, 1 pitcher on my albomarginata, 4 pitchers on my gracilis, all of the pitchers on one of my raffs, all of the pitchers on my merrilliana ( [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] ), and has pulled out 2 plants from their pots (a bicalcarata and vieillardii). [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] I could (a very big could) tolerate destruction of pitchers if it happened like once in a long while (a month or 2) but pulling out plants from their pots was the straw that broke the camel's back. I don't want to cause any pain; I just want to eliminate the problem as quickly as possible.

    NG

    I was thinking of getting handgun style pellet gun, but I much prefer the accuracy of a rifle. After I kill this ###### ###### I might actually go to my uncle's farm and shoot some of the pigeons that are plagueing him. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I did that a long time ago and it was sort of fun (even though I donít really like to see the blood and stuff [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] ).

    Iíve done a little research ( here ), and I think Iím gonna go with either a hand pumped rifle or a spring air rifle. Everything around here is more expensive than in the states, so Iím willing to spend a maximum of $100. Iíll post a pic of whatever I get sometime next week.

    Again, thanks a lot everyone. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] (That ###### ###### wonít know what hit him >=] )

    You can get a good pump action air rifle here for $40-50. The spring kind aren't very strong, that is what the Red Ryder type are. I doubt they could penetrate skin. The only thing I kill with my Red Ryder type Daisy are those giant grasshoppers.
