    .177 its not how hard you hit them its where you hit them.
    No matter where you live its all about shot placement

    You mean the Brits are allowed that high of a caliber?

    I thought ALL calibers were banned.

    I have seen some of that, I have a friend over there who sent me a link when he saw one of our debates a while back regarding the infamous 45 vs 9mm vs 357 debate......

    I guess when that is all you can own, you have to debate something!

    The potent and deadly .177 calibre.
    Anything over 300 FPS is much too dangerous.

    People in general have to argue about something, and if that is all they have then so be it.

    I for one can attest to the putting eye out, I have done it as a kid (to another kid).

    Sorry, Russell.

    Strange thing is, is that they're allowed silencers, or sound moderators as they call them.

    That is because they have nothing to attach them to.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
