With the lack of .22 ammo i'm looking at getting an Air Rifle. I've looked at gamos, like the Silent Cat.

I'm going to be using it for squirrel hunting when the dogs got the squirrels treed.

I can't decide between a .22 or .177 and the speed. Is 1250 FPS going to get 90% of the jobs done? Or is it just shot placement?

I'm looking for a good alternate to the .22

I've been want'n a good one for a few years now, hope'n to get one after tax time, cant decide if its gonna be a PCP or a spring powered gun,a .177 shoots nice & flat but I'm lean'n more tward a .22.

Heres a good place to gather food for thought before you decide, lots of info on about any gun you want to learn about.
When I was just a baby, my mama told me son, always be a good boy, dont ever play with guns.

a .177 will kill a squirrel no problem.. I always try for head shots...

Don't buy speed, buy accuracy. Check your other post I commented more on that thread
