With all that equipment, wouldn't you be better off wit han actual firearm,likea simple bolt action .22? If you are prohibited from owning one, I
can kind of understand.Still, spending the time necessary to become proficient with a bow,either compound or trad, would probably be wiser. A bow is
equally useful on large or small game,and quiter than any air rifle.
I think the term"BB gun" is kind of confusing things. Most serious air guns,at least those appropriate for taking small game, are generally
pelletguns and not BB guns. BB's can be fired in some of these, but with less accuracy and no real advantage. Also, the hard metal of the BB can harm
the rifling over the long term.
I have shot squirrels with a Sheridan Silver streak in .20 cal, and it was quite effective. A gun like that could indeed be useful, although it has
almost no advantages over a .22. Still, if it was all I had, I'd be happy to have it and use it.
