My roommate and I were "contracted" to keep the crows out of a local's yard. We use one super-cheap and one not-so-cheap-but-still-from-Walmart pellet gun. We could use BB's, but for some reason it's just more fun to pick out various "hunting pellets" with all the gnarly teeth on them and what not. We're not the most amazing shots, but it's fun anyway. :)

I have a GAMO 440 hunter air rifle with a BSA scope. It shoots 1000FPS, and has a nice barrel break action. I havn't used it in several years, but it's alot of fun plink with.

I've been up in the air between a Gamo Bull Barrel and a Gamo Whisper lately, for popping crows with. I'm sick of them eating the pecans out of my trees.

I'm not up to date on their current products, but the 440 is deadly. We have our fair share of critters in my area, and I've kept them at bay with the trusty 440...lol

I had an old pellet gun my brother gave to me that came from the Czech republic (not unusual, but that's what I remember of it). She had a fair bit of power, and she shot straight and true. Could have called it squirrel's bane, because it must have shot every squirrel on the farm the one year :) Unfortunately, the seals went in it, and we tried to have them replaced, but to no avail. She decided that was enough squirrels.

hey
B guns and pellet guns are far more accurate and powerful than airsoft guns. What you fail to take into account when looking at "specs" is simple physics. An airsoft gun may fire a projectile at a slightly higher velocity than a bb/pellet gun, but the projectile from a bb/pellet gun has MUCH more mass than an airsoft BB.
A typical airsoft bb weight 0.20 grams. A typical .177 airgun pellet/bb weighs about 0.65 grams. That's three times as much mass. Force = mass X accelleration....you do the math.
Airsoft guns have less range, less accuracy, and less impact energy.
And to answer your other question - BB guns (like a Daisy Red Ryder - Don't shoot your eye out! - generally have unrifled (smoothbore) barrels, while pellet guns (especially those designed for small game hunting and sport shooting) generally have rifled barrels. Pellet guns will be more accurate, generally speaking.
thanks
