FWIW, some people (not me) apparently have problems with grackles, starlings, etc. and use airguns to eliminate them. In this hobby, people kill everything from flies and grasshoppers to wild pigs with air rifles. This thread has already gone too far afield, so I won't debate you on the ethics or humanity of killing things, big or small.

BTW, my favorite targets are Necco candy wafers and little green army men!
Thank you for that civil response. I had a Sheridan pellet rifle when I was a kid and thought it was a great rifle.
