has to be a shot in the eye
Seems kind of irresponsible. Sure an air rifle can kill something, shot placement is everything. But I dunno about encouraging people to try and kill hogs with air rifles.
Either it will encourage them to kill alot more animals just for the hell of it or were going to see alot more funny newspaper headlines
Man mauled to death after trying to take down boar with pellet gun
I find it hard to swallow that a .177 can go through the eye and break the eyesocket
i saw the whole hunting show that clip came from. before they go out hunting, they test it on some skulls. it punched through w/a between the eyes shot.
I've always wanted one of those Gamo air rifles, but I cant see myself spending ~$300 for that rifle when I can get a ruger 10/22 for about half of that price.
link to that
sorry, it was on tv
I'm pretty sure it's illegal to hunt an animal of that size with a rimfire muchless a pellet gun. It may have been a .22 pellet though, I killed a 25lb opossum with my benjamin sheradin .22 pellet gun.
my .177 pellet rifle will go through a charcoal grill and put a 1/8th inch dent in the other side. And it shoots at 1100 fps, plus it was 99$ on sale
You can kill varmints with any thing and wild boar are listed as varmints. Heck if you are brave enough, you can go out with a metal pipe and kill a boar. (Some guy on the news did it)
That sounds like it would be fun
all i'm gonna say to that is: "before you attempt tp beat the odds, make sure you can survive the odds beating you."
