    Yep. I've taken out a few critters from around that distance. I grew up using the marlin model 60. We would sit at the top of my parents property and take out the birds, rabbits, raccoons, and possums that trespassed onto the farm.

    Sure. And hundreds of squirrels. Even a hundred yards isn't very far for a good .22 with iron sights, and the Marlin a great rifle. The real problem with iron sights isn't accuracy, it's that few people use them enough to get really good with them.

    I have hit birds and rats at distances close to that. But to be honest with you when i did it was straight luck. Im not going to proclaim to be best shot out there.... or the worst im sure.

    I was squirrel hunting with my heavily modified Crossman 2250 .22 air rifle (I know it isn’t a firearm but is shoots a predator pellet at 1250 FPS out of the muzzle) and this stupid blue jay was yapping and making a lot of racket. I figured I would scare it off with a shot so as it was flying overhead about 75 yards away I just aimed and fired … thing dropped right out of the sky … I nearly soiled my britches with disbelief at first. I thought it just died suddenly of natural causes totally coincidentally … till I went over to it and saw the pellet went in one ear and out the other …

    I keep my plinking limited to cans and such, even out to 200 yards with a .22. I don't believe in killing anything that does not wind up on the dinner table, except the occational rat, mouse or the two legged vermon that makes the wrong life choice..................

    Just in news about shooting in air

    the Ohio man discharges his muzzleloader in air to unload it, and decending bullet strikes a amish gal on way home who eventualy dies from the shot.

    Amish teen killed by stray bullet - The Washington Post

    what goes up has to come down some place, New Years Eve 1990 some the residents of Barrow Alaska thought it was a good idea to discharge firearms at midnight to celebrate New Years Eve, I didnt have any telephone or cable Tv for 3 days after, lines were shot down all over town, one block in Browerville a electrical insulater had been shot, blowing the fuse for that grid

    Kotzebue Windmill Farm sustained damage to two of there windmills from stray bullets by informal shooting along an access road.

    Kotzebue National Defence radar -radome damage from stray bullets repair cost in thousands of dollars.
