I"ve got a .177 Gamo Whisper with scope for garden protection in city- some people just don"t appreciate shotguns keeping racoons out of tomato patch. Had a .22 pump up- "crossman/Benjamin? - some years back that did fair job on rabbits in carrots, last seen in sisters hands for use by niece. 5mm Sheridan is old standard- got one for a kid when I had dealers license, parents permission. kid came back a month later and said mother was using it a lot, was getting better than he was and the scout unit marksmanship training was using something else so he had to get the single shot break model for them- ordered him a BSA dropshipped. BSA and couple others had break barrel .22 and .25 listed, was note that not allowed in some areas- like Chicago- because the large bore and energy levels got them classed as "firearms". Korean made airguns from one supplier noted a .32 bore both rifled and smooth bore available that would take OO buck- the local Korean laws made them most practical legal pest controler. Brazil laws on firearms kind of tight on pistols- but the loophole for some city residents was a CO2 pellet pistol with a single discharge valve setting and solid pellet from .22 long rifle instead of the hollowbased pellet-600 to 700 fps with 32 or 40 grain bullet- that gave homeowner and shopkeepers the legal to use equivalent to a .22 Derringer. Rifleman has a small add for a compressed air flask airifle with a little squirrel saying he"s trying to protect his nuts- it notes legal for small game and deer some states, a .45 or 50 caliber. Lewis and Clark had a about .44 caliber air rifle- air flask type- that impressed indians because it didn"t smock and was about as quiet as a bow and arrow. Austrian snipers about that time used something similar to pick off French officers- the French had a policy of anybody captured with the air rifle to be hung so the air rifle users apparently had harvested a few officers. Considering the way the Dems have been pushing restrictive laws- might need to get a couple just to keep eye and trigger finger in practice. RN
