Pistols for vermin
I’m looking to purchase a ‘silencer’ for a .177 CO2 air pistol to reduce sound when shooting at vermin. I have recently bought a silencer, but it was rubbish and made no difference to sound suppression whatsoever. Can you assist, please?
Hello John Please stop shooting at anything living with a pistol. They’re simply not accurate enough to place a pellet consistently, and precisely where it’s needed to ensure a clean kill. The CP88 you mention is also very low-powered, making somewhere around 1.5 ft.-lbs. at the muzzle that drops even lower by 15 yards. The proper tool for vermin control is an air rifle, which will allow you to be far more accurate whilst delivering sufficient power for a clean kill. Ed.
Even a modestly priced rifle is a much better tool for hunting duties than any pistol
Pistols are great fun, but not for hunting of any kind
