I agree, go with the .177 or even the .22 cal. air rifles. Plus they are fun to plink with.AnvilIron said:There are more powerful (higher velocity) .177 cal pellet/BB rifles... some exceeding 1000fps. I would be more inclined to rely on one of those.
Learn to trap. A gun can only catch food when you are there to pull the trigger. You can only be in one place. But with traps you can have multiple locations to catch birds even when you are doing other things.Mrjordanslick said:i know it can kill a bird but is it smart to relly on it for food because i cant get a gun
The sad part here, and what may ultimately cause the extinction of some species, is the fact that if SHTF, no one is going to care how many or what birds you kill for food. I love animals.. but fact is, being a former 911 operator, there will be more calls coming in for other issues then you killing to survive..dontlookatme said:Make sure if it's illegal to kill birds in your area. In Texas we are not legally allowed to kill any birds until the season starts. And till then. It's only certain birds only. But IF you decide to practice killing birds, be careful with the laws and don't get caught.
