It’s a contradiction!
Hi there. I can understand the advice you gave John Kennedy on page 11 of the last issue, about pistols being unsuitable for hunting, but turn to page 42 and there is an ad for a Crossman Ratbuster stating ‘ The Professional’s Choice’. Surely this is a contradiction in your magazine? Other than this, it’s a great mag’ and I can not wait for it to arrive every month. David Wond
Pistols can be used effectively to dispatch rats, squirrels and other pests caught in live traps, and many professional pest controllers use them for that purpose, so I think that explains the ‘Professional’s Choice’ description.
Using a sufficiently powerful pistol to dispatch captive pests at point-blank range is a world away from using them for general hunting, and it was the latter point I was making in my advice to John.
Thank you for the kind words. We work hard to make Air Gunner an enjoyable read every month and it’s good to know when people appreciate that. Ed
