Thread: Pellet gun question

    Pellet gun question

    Guys

    Not looking for any ethical opinions or debates here... but would a Co2 .177 pellet gun placed to the back of the head on a rabbit sized animal generate enough power to dispatch it cleanly?

    Cheers

    DA

    It will even do it perfectly well at about 40 metres...

    i thought the accepted range of a 12ft lbs rifle was only 30meters? , normal pistols only put out 6ft lbs,, just asking

    You can kill with a good head shot at 40.

    Not that I have anything remotely approaching that kind of accuracy...

    Seems some reading comprehension issues crept in over the distance you asked about....

    Having owned one of these pistols I would say not enough power to do the job.
