I wasn't thinking about people or using it "bad", but if I can't use a bb gun in the city on squirrels, but I can use paintball gun and not get in trouble, I might just smack a few squirrels (not to kill them, but to give them a fright to stay out of my stuff)... or just to thwack a few targets out back while wasting time.

I just thought it would be same as firing bb gun at empty cans... maybe not though. I do know a retired WBL cop, maybe I should give him a shout... though it really doesn't matter muc to me, as I prolly would not dump the bucks just to tag a stupid squirrel wink

Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!

New here, first post!

 

I recently moved from a small town out to a rural area.  There's a lot of striped gophers out here!  Naturally, I went right out and bought a .22 break barrel pellet gun, .17 pump and BB CO2 pistol.  Now, I'm shooting like 45-75 yards, so I'm around 1/100 on hit/shot ratio.  That's ok though.  I don't want to kill them all, or my sport would be over!  Anyway,,, I'm very interested in airguns, and already have my sights on a break barrel .30 rifle!  I do hunt deer less seriously, but plan to continue using my 20 gauge for that.  My wondering (and I haven't officially looked up the regs), is whether I can go off my land and legally take small game?  I would of course have a small game license should I do it.  I just want to be sure it is legal.  Don't worry, my .22 is certainly able to kill small game, and the .30 would, I assume...  I have no real interest in PCP, despite the larger calibers sounding pretty sweet!  I'd LOVE to start a little airgun only club (in Chisago County) and do little gatherings, moreso for camaraderie.  If anyone is interested, let me know.  Looking forward to a fun airgun future, and maaaybe taking a rabbit?

 

Cheers,

 

Josh

Whell, I assume this thread is probably dead.  I bought my small game license tonight and am taking my .22 out in the woods by our cabin tomorrow.  Hoping to find some squirrels and maybe a rabbit if I'm lucky.  Not even sure quite what yardage I'm sighted for, but we'll see what happens!

Nothing like living up a thread then posting some pictures how you did.  Good luck.  🙂

      I’d go as high of amperage you can afford and can get in a certain bank. 15 should suit you great. I got a 2 bank 12amp last spring but really wish I would have went with the 15 for a more faster recharge time between trips.

      Getting a MinnKota Precision charger for my new boat, a 1875 Pro Guide. It will have a 24 volt Ulterra on the bow and 24 volt Vantage on the stern. The batteries are group 31 AGMs. I've always had 10 amp per bank chargers in the past. I will be spending more time on the water with this boat so draining the batteries down more. Is the 15 amp per bank better, worse or no difference? I am leaning towards the 15 amp for quicker charging. Getting a 3 bank so the starting battery will be topped off also.

      Stopped by the dealership yesterday. The Helis 10 or 12 will fit but only if the gimbal mount is attached directly to the folding section. Any mount will make it to tall. I guess I'll be taking the graph off, not to big a deal.

      I am from Iowa we are planning a trip up to Big Trout Lake, I was wondering about the ice conditions (snow, slush, and thickness) any info would be appreciated.

      Can I cut the quick connect from the vexilar charger and then cut alligator clips off my lithium charger and switch them with no problems? I know there would be no issue with the alligators on the vex charger. Curious about the lithium with quick connect. The new 20 has the quick connect.

      On a lake near Sugar. Got on to some great sunfish they were deeper than I thought 22 feet deep suspended at 14 feet. Nonstop for 2 hours a black tungsten jig worked best I did try plastics for a bit for building up confidence but the fish showed otherwise quickly. Went back to 3 euro worms 4 was to many . Then I got a 10.5 bluegill my first one and wouldn't you know it my phone was about 2 blocks away. So I let her go not going to keep a fish out of water to get a glory picture. Oh well next time. Get out while you can the lakes were good with the warm up but who knows in a couple of weeks. That was on Friday. Drilled a few holes for an older gentleman that just wanted to fish A while I was glad to help out enjoyed chatting with him. Then went out today almost the same thing but unfortunately near a community spot and within 2 hours everyone was out there and a dog peed on my fish house was not happy threw snow on the house cleaned when i got home I left soon after very rude people unfortunately and the fishing died right away oh well.

      Well, gave Boulder a try today. Went out from the dam access. Some open water behind dam. Couple trucks drove out 😬 I did not! Foot travel, and not knowing anything about this lake made for great day to enjoy the weather. Only caught 1 perch and 1 walleye.
