I`ve read here , as well as other sites , that many are using them to "get rid" of coons , and other preds. I`m using a Crossman .22 w/some armor piercing type ammo and, after catching them , am having a hard time (requiring several shots) putting these guys down. I don`t want them to suffer , and I don`t own a "real" gun , nor do I think I`d want to use one in the neighborhood. Am I doing something wrong , or what? I`ve read of people taking them out @ 30 yds w/ one shot ...blah , blah , blah. Any advise?
