  • CO2 rifle

    ...about to buy Cath a CO2 rifle...Crosman has a 12 shot semi-auto...Model 1077...I am looking at that one...any experiences??...she's mad at the squirrels
    and has said she'll sit by the garden and plink them...they've been tearing the tomatoes up...

    Blessings!

    screw those C02 models Jimmy! I got one of the Ruger break action rifles in a 22 caliber and it is a 1,000 FPS beast. Even came with a noise suppressor. Tree rats don't stand a chance against this thing.

      There are better options out there...

      I had a trainee come through a class and show me these weapons from Rapid Air Weapons. They have rifles and pistols that can fire at up to 850fps. Not quite supersonic but still enough to hunt large game with. Check it out!!!

          I'm with Buck on this one. CO2 loses a wee bit of power with each shot, but a break action or pump rifle maintains its power with each shot.
          (I have it on "authority" that air rifles may have helped curb the tree rat population near the stadium at LSU in the mid-1980s. And have also heard that those campus bred squirrels made a delicious breakfast for a few residents of the South Stadium Dorm.)
          If you have difficulty understanding the post above, read it out loud and it should make sense. This NGTO member is known for his poor hill-billy upbringing and his affinity for all things from Louisiana (particularly if it relates to LSU). It makes for a poor mix of accents and much difficulty in translation. He was doing well for so long, but now seems to have regressed.

              Get her a Daisy 499. The worlds most accurate BB gun. It's not some Red Ryder toy. This is the gun my daughter uses for competition. She hits centre 10's with it, think half the size of a pencil eraser. Great gun.

                I have one of those ruger 177 break actions, and it sure is a great shooter! Sitting on the porch, I can nail a squirrel chowing on a bird feeder 50 yards away with it easily.
                PETA GO HOME!!!
