That’s a great point I don’t think I’ve seen mentioned here yet. I also have a Gamo Air Rifle in .177 that will easily take small game. They’re reasonably quiet and cheap to shoot (so far). But I wouldn’t put it past the powers that be to some day try to regulate them also. They did it in the UK. And we seem to be trying real hard to follow in their footsteps. I have been fortunate in the last two months to pick up a couple thousand .22LR using the invenrtory search websites, and only paying between 6-8 cents a round. May have been better at one time, but now that’s not too bad. Anyway, thanks for bringing up air rifles.
