    It's such a hassle going shooting around here, I have to get in my car and drive about 3 miles.

    So to make it easier to practice, my lovely wife got me this for my BD...



    This is a Gamo "Silent Cat" (aka Gamo "Whisper") .177 pellet gun. The only thing you hear when you fire it is the spring.

    I've been having a great time practicing in backyard. This air rifle is VERY accurate and a hell of a lot of fun.

    Anybody else "practice" with something like this?

    Pellet guns are no joke! People dismiss them as a toy, but they will kill you quick with a well placed shot! I have a .45 pistol that takes CO2 cartridges, and I wouldn't want to get shot anywhere with that baby! It shoot BBs, but it will drive them more than halfway through 1/2" drywall! A face shot to a person would be disastrous!

    I wouldn't want to defend my home with it, but it's a little badass!

    I like that rifle-is it pump or co2?

    I have a couple of Crosman pump air guns and a C02 gun but nothing that nice. I have gotten pretty good with the air pistol. I bet I can hit a squirrel in the eye at 30 feet..

    I have thought of getting one of those. I got a single pump pistol that I bought to use to kill the occasional packrat if I can't catch it in the trap. But I don't know.

    I tested the pistol against a phone book. It penetrated at least 1/2 inch into the thing. I figured plenty powerful enough for a rat.

    I had a rat down in the brick work of my former BBQ. I shot it several times and I think they were bouncing off. Weird.

    Might need a rifle. What power scope and what range do you zero it at?

    I had a 9mm air rifle that would kill deer. I sold it with the air tank this spring.
