    Crosman 1377

    I recently reseeded my lawn. The crows have been having a field day. I would love to plink them w/ my .22, but that would not be safe where I live.

    So I went to Gander Mountain and purchased a Crosman 1377 pump airgun. With standard sights, right out of the box I am shooting sub 1.5" groups at 15 yards. I was pretty impressed. Not bad for $69 and $9 for 500 super point hunting pellets.

    Now I'm just waiting for the crows to come back.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    LOL, I had one of those when I was 14 or so. I've killed a few crows with it.

    Crows are smart, they notice everything. Sit inside and shoot out an open window if you want to get one or two. After you kill the first one, they wont return.

    The Owl will work for pigeons and rodents, but crows are smart. They'll figure that out in a few hours.

    LOL. That is what I am hoping for.

    I didn't even think of a decoy. Shooting them will be more fun anyway. Is the Gamo Whisper a rifle?

    Yeah, its a nice rifle. If you really want to kill some, get a tape of hawks or owls fighting. They'll come screaming in like a blitzkrieg.

    Or if you want to keep them away, attract blue jays. Jays are the arch enemy of crows and will fight them off.

    Wow. I didn't know that a little blue jay would fight off a crow.

    Jays are tough. Crows and Jays fight on sight of each other. I forgot which does which, but one even will raid the nests of the other.

    In South Carolina, crows are a protected species and may only be hunted in season. I don't know about New York, but you should know your state laws before you shoot any animal.

    +1 on knowing the laws that pertain.
