Air rifle for coyotes?
« on: March 06, 2020, 08:20:03 AM »
I'm curious if anyone on here has experiencing dispatching coyotes with air rifles.

I've spoken to a person before who claimed to have taken 20+ coyotes with a .22 and .25 caliber PCP air rifle.  He said it takes a well placed head shot but he claimed it was very effective.

I'm considering a Airforce Texan LSS in .45 caliber for coyotes in semi-urban areas.  The new model has an integral suppressor(moderator since it's not on a firearm and not regulated) and develops around 500 foot pounds of energy with a .45 cal slug.

Tagging. Those look pretty awesome.
