.177 Pellet Rifle

I am looking to purchase a .177 caliber pellet rifle for my grandson to hunt small game with (squirrels, rabbits). What would be the minimum FPS to properly dispose of small game.

Thank You

for an air rifle I would get him the new Crosman Benjamin Discovery PCP Air Rifle. You fill the tank with a high pressure pump that looks like a bicycle pump.

These are very popular in Europe and produce the same velocity as the break action but offer faster follow up shots if needed. I also prefer a 20 or 22 cal.
