^^a good wadcutter pellet going 1,000fps will actually smack and drop a squirrel better than a .22,yet less change of roof damage or neighbor injury,pellet gun is the way to go.

I think Shihan is out practicing his falconry. He'll be around to help you in a few days.

I used to shoot the little critters off my neighbor's roof with a Feinwerkbau .177 using the old, now impossible to find Cro-Magnum pellets.

ALL fun in the sun.

Once you get the oil cleaned out of the air cylinder, the silenced pellet guns are really quiet. Just dont break the sound barrier with the super high speed pellets. I prefer the 22 caliber air rifles.

Default Roof rats?

Roof rats? What roof rats? I have a small herd of these big critters in my yard. Don't think a Gamo .177 is potent enough. But then again, it is all about shot placement isn't it?
