Is that an expensive way to do it? How much is one round of ammo?
Nice and quick though, I have no problem with protecting chickens from predators, animal suffering would be my issue, but a quick shot and dead, well so be it.
You should get a couple of 'barn cats' well fed, they'll keep predators away, save you the job.

Where my parents lived in Spain people would drop dogs off and leave them. Would you shoot dogs?
Cat killing aside, your rural sounding environment sounds amazing. I used to keep chickens but moving to a smaller property I can't really now, it would have to be a factory caged hens type situation and that's not for me.
I live in the Country, deepest Wiltshire, and am no city slicker.
If cats can get at your chickens, surely Mr Fox can? We have ours in a fox proof enclosure - if we didn't we would soon have no chickens.
Do you not have Cat Rescue people where you are?
