    These 2 are custom Crosman 2250's that I have built up, co2 powered bolt action rifles which are very modifiable!

    Yup, starlings sure are persistent and can take some hunting skills to catch them out.

    Got back home at 6.20 having been back out to the bunny place. Took a mate out with his .177 PCP, a -super accurate- single shot one. His is certain death to bunnies under ~35yds if he has a rest. Between us, we bettered last week's tally in an hour but a much higher proportion of smaller ones this time. Smiles all round

    Hey @Mintie what brand is that rifle with the wood stock? I have some starling problem but its a no shotgun area. Range would be 30-60 yds so I thought maybe an accurate precharged would do the job.
    Nothing is tough about having a 70 lb bow and looking like an uncoordinated praying mantis while trying to draw it back.

    our Starlings appear to be retarded and have little fear of man or cats.....easy pickings and mostly shot at under 10 meters

    Not round here Danny. They get constant harassment on our life sentence block and know they need to keep a good 100m away. Even then, I've nailed quite a few. Same applies to maggies.

    Thats an Edgun Matador R3m in .22, It would be the perfect tool for Starlings and would knock them over out past 150m with the right shooter.

    Wanted to resurrect this thread again a little with some pics from a recent hunt.

    The Crosman 2240 is a very versatile platform for modding, this one has been changed out to .25 cal and had all of the internals tuned up - it now gives 3 times the original power output at 18fpe.

    I'm liking this thread! Currently in the market for the PCP for around the house etc. There are a few rifles in here I hadn't looked at.
