Was calling coyotes in the afternoon and nothing was happening on my stand so I figured I'd go get my RWS 34 .177 Pellet Rifle and see if I could call in a couple of crows with my FoxPro FireStorm.

Sure enough, they came right on in and I nailed two of them in a tall pine tree about 150 feet away. Lost one of them in the thick bushes but managed to retrieve this one.

That RWS 4.5 mm pellet rifle is 32 years old and still works perfect with ten shots on a dime at 50 yards, it is a FUN gun.

I'm using the RWS Super Hollow Points - 6.9 grains.

Air rifles can be great fun.

I love my RWS 34, it has been a long term solid investment and have gotten ALLOT of great target practice and hunting from this precision rifle.

A friend of mine had some squirrels knaw through the flashing on his roof and were running around all over his attic making a huge mess, loaned him my RWS 34 and no more problem....it is simply wicked how deadly this thing is when using its accuracy to the fullest for rodent headshots.

For targets, I use Bayer Aspirins standing lined up on a 2X4 @ 50 feet, when you nail them you get a large puff of white dust!:D

I just bought one to get my kids introduced to target shooting. It's a crosman Nitro Venom at 1200fps. However, I'm pretty disapointed with the precision of this rifle. The grouping is not consistant. At 25 yards, It can be off by 3 inches on a stable bench. I can be any direction of the bulleye.
I have never shot crows with it. Do you aim for the head or to the body does the job?
So far, I've always used my Beretta 12 gauge.

I just aim for the chest and they get wacked real good and are dead before they even hit the ground. I could take a head shot though, maybe next time I will try that out!

I love airguns. I've hunted with my old Finewerkbau 124D as well as a Beeman R9. Lately I've been playing with an RWS 350P in 22. Now that's a cannon of an airgun. There are some pretty decent deals on them now. I played around for a while a PCP airgun, but prefer the simplicity of spring guns.

Awesome, nice shooting.

I hunted rabbits with a pellet gun growing up from 12-15 yrs of age. And my Crossman pump was not a high fps gun, would have loved to have had the airguns they make today. I have been contemplating getting an airgun for ever to plink away with. I'll have to check out the RWS!

My whole adult life I have always dreamed of getting a FWB 124, when I was a teenager one of my friends had one all decked out for target practice and that thing was a jewel of a gun.
