The true eye sees not the despair of its victims, only the elegance of equilibrium. It's a demonstration of superior judgement.

Never mistake motion for action.

What are you using? I have been looking at some new pellet guns for critter control and don't mind spending $$$ to get a good one. Tried the kids Red Ryder but need some thing with more range and accuracy.

Just a Ruger Blackhawk Elite .177 pellet rifle.

Nice work on that critter.

I'm using a Hammerli that I got a the Sportsman's Warehouse for under $125 on sale. Very accurate but noisy, I'm now using Calibri .22 that are like BB caps and very quiet in a rifle.

I worked for a company that had hundreds of them running around our equipment.  I asked about hunting them and they said no.....then they ate about $20k worth of wiring harnesses and suddenly I was back to being a merchant of death.

Fun times.

I've killed 8 or so rock chucks this year between 90-100 yards with my Airforce Talon 22 caliber.  Sage rats out to 130. 

Will cost you $600 or so but if you do, you'll no longer be bragging about 35 yards.  Miss at 50 yards and you'll be scratching your head about what went wrong.  :twocents:
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
