Learning to Hunt? Try a Pellet
Rifle - Air Guns Offer Many Advantages
If you are just becoming interested
in hunting and youíre not sure which type of weapon to purchase, a
pellet rifle offers many benefits. Air guns like these are designed in
a similar fashion as standard bullet-firing rifles, but are safer. A
pellet rifle is also considerably cheaper, in both itself and the
ammunition it fires. If you or your child is just getting started, air
guns will give you the feel of being a hunter without as much danger
When choosing a pellet rifle for hunting, keep in
mind a few important points. First, understand that not all air guns
are made for hunters. Muzzle velocities vary widely, and only the
moderate-to-high projectile speeds will kill small game.
In addition, youíll want to choose a pellet rifle
that either comes with or has the mount for a riflescope. Even if you
donít think youíll need one at first, most hunters who use air guns
eventually end up using a scope, so think ahead. It can be very
expensive to have the mount added later (if itís possible at all
with your particular gun).
Finally, look for a pellet rifle that can shoot
different sizes of ammunition. Most of these air guns will fire .177
caliber pellets, but many hunters like using .20 and .22 rounds for
some types of small game. Options are good!
