The Outdoor Pressroom ^ | April 27, 2013

Posted on 04/27/2013 11:54:22 AM PDT by jazusamo

Authorities in Gainesville, Fla. have charged William Daniel Lloyd with discharging a firearm in public and possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, after he reportedly tried to shoot a squirrel for dinner by taping a .40-caliber cartridge to the muzzle of a Pumpmaster 7670 BB gun. Lloyd, 31, was treated — and later released — for shrapnel wounds when the cartridge exploded. The condition of the targeted squirrel was not reported. The Gainesville Sun

The targeted squirrel may have died from laughter while the squirrel firing the BB gun was only wounded. :-)

Too bad he didn’t have a pellet gun as one will kill a squirrel yet it isn’t considered a real firearm. Buy one at Walmart - no background check for this non-firearm that kills small animals.

.22 CCI Mini-caps are quieter than a .177 air rifle IMO.

Much quieter, and you can hear the thwock when it hits. Subsonic.

His girlfriend told police that Lloyd told her he was trying to shoot a squirrel for dinner

She must not be too bright either, counting on this fellow to provide for her meals.

Wal-mart sells the Beeeman “Grizzly” with two interchangeable barrels, one shoots BB or .177 pellet, the other shoots .22 pellet. I have confirmed that the .22 pellet will go through TWO 3/4 inch Western Red Cedar boards at forty feet making a hole that looks like a drilled hole. I wouldn’t want to be shot with it. The .177 pellet will go through one of the boards and make an impression on the second one. I haven’t tried BBs but I am sure it would be a reasonable squirrel killer with BBs.

Over 55 years ago my cousin and I were shooting at 12 ga shells stuck in the side a dirt embankment, they were buried with the primers facing us. After a volley of shoots with out pellet guns my cousin finally hit one and it blew back and hit him right over the left eye. In the moments right before a pump knot about the size of a golfball showed up you could read Remington Peters on the impact area.

I got the Titan GP in 22 cal and I’ve taken rabbits, skunks and rattlers out on the ranch. There are no longer any squirrels hitting my bird feeders. For some reason they keep disappearing between the biscuits and gravy.

I got the Walther PPQ pellet/BB handgun which says it will kill small animals such as a squirrel.

I think when Hussein knows these weapons kill something, they will be reclassified as real firearms and I'm not kidding when I say that. I got plenty of pellets and BBs but it's the hollow point pellets I'll be using if I need to do that with the squirrels in the trees behind my house. If they attack my food plants, good bye squirrels - and birds if they do that.

“Try the Raptor pellets.”

I have 3 tins of Hollow Point Hunting Pellets
1 tin of Extreme Knockdown Power Pellets
1 tin of Destroyer Hunting Pellets

How is a Raptor different? I am new to pellet guns.

Friends and I used to put .22 shells on the top of a bb gun.

In hindsight, pretty stupid.

“.22 CCI Mini-caps are quieter than a .177 air rifle IMO.”

I have the CCI Minis for my 22 long rifle.

I got the Walther pellet handgun without the blowback feature, so it’s quiet. The blowback feature makes a louder noise and the pistol kicks. That’s to make it more like a real handgun but I wasn’t interested in that. I wanted a quiet gun so the neighbors wouldn’t hear a loud noise.

True, but tape makes a lousy firing chamber and barrel.
