    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    The only air rifles they have around here are at canadian tire wich are overly priced 117's under 495 fps.Anything more powerfull and you need a frigin gun licence and have to register it wich im not about to do.They dont even have 22's.

    Do i even have a chance of breaking the skin on a squirel,crow or groundhog?My friend shoots me with his 300 fps airsoft and its quite pathetic.Are these canadian tire guns just for target shooting or what.should i just save my money.

    i think your best bet is to save your money as 495fps puts out only 4.5 ftlb which is nothing really. in the uk we have pistols putting out more power than that :D

    .177 is powerful enough to bury itself an inch deep in my uncovered leg at 30 yards. (don't ask) My .177 will take the head right off a gopher at about 25 yards, so it'll do just fine for your intentions.


    P.S Where in Canada are you?
