Good fun but a serious firearm none the less.

Ha! This very thing happened out in Nassau County Long Island. It wasn't a house he razed though but rather another small building that went out of business.....I think it was a diner.The damn tyrants say I can't raze a suburban house and put up a titty bar for the neighborhood. Bastards!
My Walther has taken 3 rabbits in the last few hours! Great having that second shot!

When I'm with a lady, there's no PRACTICE about it.A perfect day would be a long ride on the motorcycle with a beautiful woman, a stop for some target practice, a nice dinner and so on.
The local shires are like a 3rd arm of government here and are responsible for development and planning within their boundaries. We have Federal, State & local government all with different areas of responsibility. As a landholder, the shire requires me to control “Noxious weeds & animals.” I am also required to control vegetation in the sense of bush fire prevention.Zoning laws? We got them here too, of course.
My dad taught me shooting back when I was 8-10. He used to trap, beaver, mink, muskrat, raccoon, and fish for snapping turtles (at the same time). Once upon a time, there was still places to do this out in the western suburbs of Chicago, in the late 60s and early 70s. Yes, I have eaten some of those critters. But, he sold the furs and meat somewhere downtown Chicago. I never did find where.
He'd wake me at o dark thirty and we would go and set, or check the traps, depending. While we were out, that is where he taught gun safety and shooting, using a 22 bolt action and a 20 gauge shotgun. We had them along because all too often, there would be a live animal in the trap.
Found out, after my turn, he did the same with my younger sister. He even taught us how to tan the hides.
I couldn't start, with my sons until my Ex was out of the picture. No places to trap so it has been mostly indoor ranges. But, we will be taking a hunting trip before my oldest starts his life after college.
This one and I chose it because it’s the most powerful .22 cal air-rifle in OZ. I was sick of rabbits being able to kick under cover before dying! They don’t with this gun!!Remind me again of which Walther airgun you are using. Those are some badass weapons.
I was ogling this one:

I should mention that it is heavy! 5 kg with scope.
I grew up in the state of West Virginia, very pro-gun and pro-hunting. Gun safety was on of the things we covered in phys-ed class in junior high. We learned all the rules, then went out back and were handed .22 rifles. We shot targets from all the different positions, etc. It was just another day at school. I told this to a friend of ours, I thought she'd faint. She couldn't believe that a bunch of 14 year olds were shooting on school property!
