    Pesting in the backyard, with a Gamo Wildcat Whisper .22.  Just got it in June, last week finally upgraded crappy scope to something a bit better, a 3-9×32 Barska.  It’s an accurate and decently powerful rifle for my purposes, in a smallish backyard, and with not a huge airgun budget at the moment.

    This varmint took a Beeman Crow Magnum .22 pellet, straight to the brain from about 12-14 feet away!  (Have my scope zeroed for the normal distance I shoot them at, 20-30 feet, so this super close shot wasn’t tricky)

    Did the brain death boogie for a few flops, then was still just in time for a neighbor cat to wander through and mosey up to it, investigating it.  Watched the cat creep up behind it, ready to pounce?  Haha. Then it sniffed it and seemed to lose interest.

    Car beats pellet every time!  

    After I took this pic, I flipped him over…exit wound was big and nasty!  Aimed for just between ear and eye for head shot, was a hair off and the shot literally went in one ear, out the other!
