id think 6ftlb to a trapped mink would despatch it well enough. i know an old keeper who uses a webley tempest to dispatch all manner of small animals when trapping.

A mink can have a pretty tough skull and im not so sure that 5 fpe even from a .22 would be quite enough to dispatch  it cleanly .(obviously  I've never tried shooting a mink ) but if you do go down the pistol route go for a co2 single shot type 

Like a crosman 2240 or the smk cp1  / cp2 

The crosman 2250 (short carbine rifle that does 8 fpe ) in .22 might be a bit more suitable.

I once got an air pistol, as when ferreting sometimes when they were really tightly curled up and stuck in a net it would be easier to shoot it quick and sort it out after. But I got one, can’t remember which, I think a multi pump, and the pellet just bounced off it’s head!

years before I’d had a co2 revolver for killing tin cans, and that was really powerful, it was nicked though unfortunately.
