In air rifle terms, 19fps isn't bad .... the legal limit here is @ 11fps.


It's not fps (feet per second), it's ft lbs (foot pounds). The legal limit in the UK is 12 ft lbs without a firearms certificate.

ft lbs calculator

Interestingly if you go over this you need a section 1 firearms license. It's actually easier to get a shotgun certificate.

Yes, I'd realised my mistake when drawn to it by evidencenibbler. I'd always used ft/lbs as a measure with air rifle power so why I made that mistake, ill never know

I bought a .22 that fires 1250 fps. Its enough to kill an armadillo with a pellet.

Armadillos kept digging up my yard, and my chihuahua dislocated both knees one day when she tripped in one chasing a rabbit.

The armadillos in the southern US carry Hansons Disease (leprosy). You become infected by eating the meat.

I hear they are tasty. But i need all my body parts. Lol
