Cool.
I still wonder what that 20mm airgun was all about. That equates to about a .787 caliber!

Must be one hefty puppy.............

I honestly have to say that I have never heard of anything like this before. I thought .22 cal was the biggest caliber airgun made. Which is probably the same assumption made by others in above posts.

Where can you buy these guns and ammo? What are the prices ranges? What is the effective kill range?

I have one of these

James Rivera in Wy. wanted to kill a buffalo with an airgun. So I took Bob Dean's 20mm up to him and I also videoed the hunt. From 30 yards, the 1005 grn. bullet went through ribs on both sides and stuck under the skin on the opposite side.

I'm not trying to be a jerk, But I'd think maybe some people interested in airguns instead of a more traditional firearm would be because they may have a felony on their record and can not own a firearm. Airhunter have you heard of this happening?

Happy hunting, I live about an hour & a half from Monterey and there isn't much out in this neck of the woods.

Well, that could be another good reason to hunt with an airgun. But I never heard of it happening. I use to hunt with firearms, you know like witha 308. Yeah I could drop a dear 150+ yards away . But what fun is that? Its too easy. And when you shoot at a game. You have to make sure there is a safe backstopper.

I like to hunt with airguns, because its more challenging. You have to stalk your game alot closer 30 to 40 yards. No need to worry about a backstopper. and its quieter. Airguns kills game, drops them just like firearms do.

Very true, like bowhunting. I like the stalking thing. And before anyone asks no I've never had a restraining order. Big smile

I know it's old post, but :
in CA you have to use certain caliber centerfire for big game...
Felon will not get a hunting license, so airgun will not make any difference for him/her.
Correct me if i'm wrong.
