.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

1000fps. or more...
Look for break barrels instead of CO2 powered... I like the GAMO brand, I had one of those and are indestructible, reliable, long lasting, exelent craftmanship... but you could look for Crossman brand too, I had a Crossman pistol and I loved but was a CO2 and sometimes run out of gas, that's why I do prefer the break barrel... and .177(4.5mm) it's a good caliber but I still prefer the .22(5,5mm).
I hope your grandson enjoy it!
