    Sat in my vehicle for two hours in the air conditioning and listening to Metallica's Album and blasted a dumb flock of pest birds.  Don't think I miss one under 60-65 yards (and did NOT have a range finder). I forgot it at home, like always.  Just used my range wheel.  Took 70-75 shots and got 53 corpses.  A few flew off and died, a few over 70 I ranged wrong, and i had a few follow up shots that accounted for my other shots.  Accuracy Lelya is everything a person can expect for such a compact gun.

    markT,  They’re a protected species in almost all states.  In MN where the OP is located they’re protected too.  Not very smart of him to post his 53 killings.  Fish and Wildlife may also follow this forum.  By the way, nice clear photo of the OP.

    Plinker1962: It certainly wasn't my intention to point out a possible violation..

    Maybe he has a landowner permit that allows him to kill those birds doing crop damage?

    Boog: yes sir, I agree 100 percent.

    I was at gun shop one time ( yes, a gun shop story) and one of the guys, told me that a guy was killing Robins. A  ( DNR under cover) approached him and said "nice shooting; how many do you think you killed?" The guy said I think the last count was 36. DNR then said, that's great… He charged  him $100 per bird.. I cannot confirm if this story is true or not.. BUT, it would make sense, would it not?

    RED wing blackbirds are illegal in CA.  I'm not seeing any red in the picture, maybe they're all females?  Not sure if blackbirds are illegal in CA.

    No matter, I would NOT have an identifying picture with them were it me.  You might wanna edit your post.

    Federal depredation order allows shooting of blackbirds under certain conditions.  It also spells out the responsibility of the person doing to shooting.

    I've shot them (last year and this year), cowbirds as well, no problem….same with crows……all covered under the order.

    Don't worry everyone!  I do my research before I shoot.  These were a mixture of pest birds. I don't shoot anything that is PROTECTED or anything that has a SEASON on it.  I could have had 20 more doves, 30 red wing black birds, a few Robins, and a hawk, and a million swallows.  I pass on them all!  All of these birds were taken legally, and were "in the process of damaging property" belonging to the farmer (aka property owner). 

    I made sure Each pest bird had at least one speck of feed grain in its mouth before I blasted it.  Then I took a close up photo proving it, just so it will stand up in the "air gunners court of law".

    Sorry for mis-labling my post by saying "blackbirds" I should have said "pest birds that happen to be mostly black in color".  

    I want to thank all of you who voice concern for me and warn me about the possibility of Federal Wildlife agents searching this great Airgun Nation forum for possible poachers thoughout this great, free, and liberty rich country we call the United States of America!

    Thank you!

    All good, glad that you clarified your intent.  It would be a real bummer to get into trouble, especially for innocent circumstances.
