Lonestar: FooDog: Lonestar: When I was young I used to work at a restaurant downtown, and to park in dark alleys behind the hustle and bustle of the city. Once I was going back to my car and I heard a metallic noise in the direction of the small alley between trash cans I just passed by. Then I saw the trash move a bit, something was in there. Figured it was a dog, or a big cat, or even a raccoon. Then I saw it, it was the size of a small dog, or a big kitty cat or a normal sized raccoon. Low on the ground, you have to remember it was dark. I didnt pay it too much mind, as I was used to raccoons where I lived in the suburbs.

Then i saw the tail, it was a HUGE RAT! Bigger than the one on the shoulder on this thread.

It wasnt paying me any mind, so i left him alone. Got into my car and locked the doors.

CSB.

We dont have possums here in Quebec... but the size is right. It was the depth of winter here.


We have them in Ontario.  Stands to reason you've got them in Quebec.  They come up on the trucks.

FooDog: For wildcardjack: Hmmm, too bad I think the right ammo isn't allowed to be sent to Iran...

Varmint Grenades making pink mists out of prairie dogs.

Not really all that great in urban environments. Ideal solution would be a .22 PCP air rifle with polymag predator pellets. Plenty of power to take out vermin at an acceptable range but a a whole lot less downrange worries. Normal plank is usually sufficient as a backstop. Something like this should do the trick:

I am not sure which air rifle this person is using but he is taking out a lot of rats.

It looks like there are a couple of different PCPs, but I'm pretty sure one is a Weirauch HW100S with a custom moderator.
