    I was out on my deck today with my pellet gun next to me loaded with a pellet target shooting.The chickens were in the backyard too but they were not close to were I was shooting.It was starting to get dark so I started to get my things together to get inside.I hear a super loud squock from my roo and all my chickens come charging across the yard towards me.Then I see the stupid racoon,I tried to aim becouse I was so freaked out but I still shot.I think it might of been luck or somthin becouse I got him!!He kept on running a lttle bit but stumbled,fell over and laid there I shot him again in the head to make sure he was dead and I waited a few mins.After that I came over But couldent exactly find the entry of the pellet.I was using those sharp pellets and my gun pumped to its full capacity.Not bad, right?

    Pringle, all of my demon horde start with a pellet gun and work their way up.

    Me? If I'm not using my .22 I get out my pellet gun. Bigger is better, but you forget the precision needed when you learn to shoot a pellet gun [​IMG]

    Great job!

    I cant get a real gun becouse we live waaayyyyyyyy to close to nieghbors.But if my pellet gun doesnt scare em animals away I think my automatic paintballs gun will [​IMG] .Recently there have been these dogs in my yard but I dont want to accidently kill them with my peelet gun so il just make em nicenpretty with my paintgun.

    gotta be careful though. the aspca will say thats cruelty to animals. I don't agree, but......... living in the city, ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

    Any chance you can get them to eat a pound of Limburger cheese? They'll stink forever [​IMG]
