Are those FAC air rifles? Some nice shooting there

No pal this is a 12 ftlb air rifle using light pellets as not to damage the building.

Hello, I use a sub 12 ft LLB air rifle, even then some pellets go through the rats, Hades were like this so gone back to a domed , the damage rats caused around the farm runs into £1000s, last year into this year, a few years back got into the old combine, that cost a few £1000s , any farm with a big rat problem , traps/poison is not enough, not seen so many this time, keep at them Simon, oh and everyone on PW 👍

Great comment,  I often watch rat shooting videos and you can clearly see holes appear in the walls!!

That shot at 7:50 was an absolute peach 👍

Thank you for the excellent video. I can not recall ever meeting a person who had something good to say about Rats!

I appreciate the care you have taken over you shooting…….. I recall watching a video of an American shooter with one of their super powerful air rifles shooting at feral pigeons in what appeared to be the roof of an industrial complex. He was a very good shot. However His pellets were going through the birds and impacting upon the steel ductwork behind. I can’t recall the calibre but it was powerful. It almost looked as thought the steel had been hit with a ball peen hammer. I wonder if the factory owner saw the video and removed his permission. Kind regards Rookandrabbit.

Yes that is why I enjoy watching your videos. They show accurate humane safe shooting. What is not to like. A credit to which all shooters should aspire. Kind regards Rookandrabbit.

P.S. a colleague let me use his Sako 6mm heavy barrel rifle on foxes it was an absolute laser and a joy to use ……… I could not miss! Keep up the good work!
