my yard is full of citrus trees. the squirrels eat everything that hits the ground. not too bad unless you have dogs that make a raquet when they see them. so i got a nice break barrel pellet gun. beautiful wooden stock, nice butt pad and all. claims 850 fps and that seems about right. this is really fun! my dogs bark less and i can play "great white hunter" out back before work. i was amazed at the accuracy personally but i may throw a scope on. i'll take a pic of a successful harvest soon. anyone else like to shoot pellet guns? what kind do you have? happy hunting!
