Porcupines & Red Foxes
If you have a problem with pests the size of Porcupines and Red Foxes, an air pistol at close range with 39 to 70 foot pounds of energy will drop them like a bad habit. At a distance of 10 yards, the pellet will penetrate approximately 3/4 of an inch into a Douglas fir 2 x 12. These air pistols are most accurate with a round nose pellet ranging in weight from 18 grains to 25 grains. Pointed pellets should be avoided because they are known to be a cause of a jammed magazine (except AR6 pistols). The “magic” pellet is found by balancing the weight of the pellet to the air pressure that the gun puts out; each air rifle has its own personality.
