not sure if this qualifies as a curio.

    I know this is odd and kinda out of place but has anyone had a chance to try out one of the .45 cal air rifles?

    I had a tester at the shop a little while ago...like last month. There is a custom maker of em here in sw mo. What are you wantin to use it for? The one we had killed a german shephard after calves shot at 50 yards or so.

    My idea is that if they come for the guns they will overlook the air rifles and I'm thinking the .45 is about perfect and I could probably use one of my rb molds modified to make rounds for it. Honestly don't know much about them. Just heard about them a few months ago.

    Ya that might work. They will kill a deer so i think the would work for that. They shoot what BP shooters call a buffalo bullet.

    Google south west missouri custom air rifles. If that doesnt work google large bore air rifles.

    Here in missouri we have a magazine called the missouri cinservationist. They had a story about a kid that was like 16 trying to kill a deer w one. I think did kill one w it. I know its part of our hunting laws you can use one no smaller than .45 cal for deer and has been that way for a couple years now....you can also use an atlatl

    That's awesome. The atlatl is illegal in my state. Not that I'm good enough with one to go hunting with it. I would be lucky to hit the broad side of a barn at 50 feet with one. They are impressive weapons.

    Ok, I had to Google atlatl, seen it before though. I never knew big air rifles existed. Now I want one. Thanks a lot, guys, now I have to work more overtime to pay for one.

    This is the biggest waste of time tread! Mods, please move to the airgun section, please! BTW, Shepards were bread to be Shepards. Sometimes they go astray, but since they do not have wolves, they revert. Blame the owner, don't shoot the Dog.

    I don't see why its a waste of time thread it seems to be generating interest and informing people. America wouldn't be what it is if not for an air rifle.
