I live in the most stereotypical suburb. I am raising some chickens in the backyard but seeing that the chickens are being taken away at night by Bobcat or some other small predator. I am planning on shooting them at night by hiding and sitting. Also, I have a rabbit problem where they coming and pooping in my yard.

Which Gun do y'all recommend I get? I want it to be quiet and light. I dont want neighbors calling Police at night if I sit and shoot in backyard. Also, I want it to be light enough for my 9 year old daughter to practice with it shooting rabbits and coons. Thoughts and suggestions? Should I buy used ones?

Thanks.

Amer

Synthetic stock with thumbhole, good suppression, .22 caliber...gamo silent cat meets the criteria I believe

Benjamin Marauder will take care of that, and very quiet as well.

Airguns are already pretty quite. Only trained ears know the sound of one going off.

I have killed rabbits and squirrels out to 30yd with a 640fps .177 Gamo Young hunter.
My dad's .22 RWS Model 48 has killed squirrels at 80yd. That thing will put a hurt on anything in that size category, my opinion anyway.
Have also used a Model 34/35. Very deadly, very accurate, but a little louder.

I like German airguns. I don't like the Gamo synthetic stuff as much as German wood stocks. But from what I understand, it works really well.

I shoot a model 48 and it's damn near as loud as 22 shorts.

Maybe it's the rabbit that is eating the chickens...

Maybe the people in my neighborhood are just chill grin Been shooting airguns and bows in my backyard since '04. No complaints or anything. And airgun shooting=birds falling off the telephone wire in my backyard. No complaints. confused2

Get some super colibre 22 ammo. Cabelas sells it. It is quieter than most bb/pellet guns I have used. Has plenty of pop for squirrels and rabbits. If your going to shoot coons, bobcat, or other larger critters with it shot placement will be CRITICAL.
