Squirrel Pellet Gun

Yo,

I don't know anything about guns. But I got a problem with squirrels and our fruit groves and I would like to eliminate them with a pellet gun. However I want the squirrel to die as fast as possible and want to inflict as minimal pain as possible and hunt in the most humane way. Any recommendation on guns or calibers/ FPS? The internet is all over the place with this info, some say you need at least a .22 REAL RIFLE, while others say that anything above 300FPS pellet gun with .117 caliber is enough.

You guys know? Any recommendations for a good quality gun, and where can I get one?

Thanks

any pellet gun will kill them if you get good shot placement. It's all shot placement on any game for a quick painless death.

if you really don't want to hurt them, trap them.

any .22 caliber above or around 500FPS will do the job. I'd avoid using a .177 if i were you.
all the guns in the above post are up to the job.

go with a .22

they are a lot more fun to shoot, and if you miss the sweet spot will still kill the squirrel.

I use mine for our rabbit and woodchuck problem. Damn bastards!

I got a .177 with a scope from Walmart, it kills squirrels with precision. I'd prefer a .22, however the cops were driving around my house too often when i was shooting that or my 12 gauge. lol.

I used to hunt squirrels in high school with a .177 crossman 10 pump single shot pellet rifle. You get them anywhere in the chest and they will die. I also occasionally used a .22 crossman air gun, also with pellets and that thing would knock the squirrels out of the trees. Any good quality airgun will make short work of squirrels.

Although there is something special about shooting a squirrel with a .22 CCI Stinger or Velocitor.

I bought a 1000FPS one from Sports Authority and found it to be louder then my .22 so I returned it lol.

It takes a special skill shoot the rifle accurately compared to a compressed gas airgun.

I have a cheap pellet gun back home, some cheap one from walmart. We have squirrels that like to get in our wood duck houses so when we see one we shoot it. even though its cheap it gets the job done, even if you miss, if it doesnt hit the tree and just whizzes by the squirrel they usually dont hear it and you can get another shot off. Killed about 5 squirrels in the course of an hour one day when I was bored.
