Technically i live in a "city". But folks shoot varmints out there all the time. We bought a 22 cal air rifle so we could dispatch varmints more quietly.


And accurately? My Remington .22 is the most accurate gum I've fired.

Hi Tex. What sort of "Varmints" do you shoot?

One of my favourite phrases: "It's quieter than a Texas Salad Bar."

Varmints! That is a true Americana word for me even from childhood watching the Beverly Hill Billies!
Is your airgun pretty powerful then? They are restricted here as you would expect in 'listen to your mother' Britain lol


The legal muzzle-energy limit for air rifles is 12ft.lb and for pistols, 6ft.lb. You do not require any form of licence for sub legal-limit airguns.
For rifles producing more than 12ft.lb,a Firearms Certificate (FAC) is required. Air pistols that produce more than 6ft.lb are prohibited.

What kind of critters prowl your parts, we've just got Badgers, Foxes, and Hedgehogs really...rats and mice of course but my outside cat deals with them, eats the lot except the tails, they get left outside my front door.

Top tune!

It deserves embedding for the cafe ambience, couldn't pull the one from bing but here's the radio version off youtube...

I hadn't heard this in ages, nice one, free iced coffee for you mate.

Cheers. That version was by Tommy Shaw from Styx and Jack Blades from Nightranger, but you can't beat the Isley Bros.

I want that Full English Breakfast now if nobody else minds. Hold the mushrooms, black pudding and fried tomato though, they are nasty. Thanks.

Oh yeah, and toast with marmalade and/or Marmite. Real butter too, margarine forbidden.

Yeah, its powerful enough to kill armadillos and whatnot.

Under 50yds it'll pop holes through 1" pine. It can hit a 100yd target.

Mostly snakes (we have rattlers) and armadillos (they dig up grubs in the yard...my oldest dog dislocated both knees last summer stumbling in the holes).

Haha, only real salted butter served in the Banter cafe mate, people have been banned because they asked for margarine! ...same with those other pretend butter spreads, banned from the kitchens here.
Good choice funny tune, I haven't heard that for years

Keep them coming.

Wow armadillos that's a powerful air rifle, are armadillos a pain in the arse stealing food from bins or whatever?
I'd think it was pretty cute if I saw them running round my backyard, unless of course they cause problems like rats?

EDIT
Just seen your reply to OldCarpy, ignore this lol
Hope your dog recovered.

Nice place CCG. Is there anyway you could add a song for the jukebox for me?

the 9 band armadillo is a carrier of leprosy. that said, they are welcome so long as they aren't causing issues.

At work we are in 11 acres of forest. managing the wild life there is one of the things we take on. armadillos, foxes, squirrels, deer, racoons, and possums are frequent visitors. We trap cats to remove (they kill squirrels, etc), and frequently catch a racoon instead. They just get released back onto the property.

I was looking at buying one of those this weekend. Used and in great condition for £110. Reviews said go for the Gamo varmint stalker classic and they have a used one for £125. It's not for anything more than plinking stuff so the price has to be low.

ETA - wrong gun! It was the .177 Express not the .22

Wow, I didn't realise Leprosy was a thing in the US, I'd stay away from them for sure!
Sounds cool where you work. I'm in general maintenance/building and my main gigs are in residential areas, but anytime I get to build fences/stables/whatever in the countryside I'll snatch it. I often do work on an Alpaca farm and they are funny crazy beasts make me laugh a lot. The woman who owns the place raises them for their fur/wool.
...I wonder if you can eat Alpaca, could be a new dish on the Banter Cafe menu...I'll go search now...


Lean, tender and almost sweet, alpaca meat is nutritionally superior to many of its red meat counterparts. Lower in calories, fat,and cholesterol, this high-protein, exotic meat is beginning to appeal to those seeking out alternatives to domesticated meat like beef or pork, and even wild meat, like venison.
I might go speak to the woman again, maybe she does sell them for meat as well, she only mentioned their coats to me.

I haven't had an air rifle in years, wish I still did, my last one was a Webley Tempest .177 pistol back when I was 14 in the 70's. Bet it would be worth a few quid now.

I have a rare 1980's Barnett Commando Crossbow, 150lbs strain, like a shotgun to load which you don't see any more much. I shoot with my mate on his field, it's a beast.
Here's one on ebay, it's beautiful and I wish my brass was in the same condition, worth $350 apparently...

I'd love a go on a good crossbow. Downside is you can hike out of Keswick or Buttermere with a covered rifle and nobody looks twice. Carry a crossbow and folk get twitchy.
