    Tom I'll still eat them birds any day, none of that stuff bothers me a bit, raised in the country, I've eaten just about anything that walks, crawls and flies in my life, I don't plan on eating the birds poop and I never heard of wild birds eating their own poop, but I guarantee that if you ever went to a chicken farm or a turkey farm you may not ever eat another bite of those two birds for sure, the chicken and Turkey that comes out of stores and restaurants is way more unhealthy and polluted than just about anything found in the wild.......

    My Dad worked for a Turkey raising company many years ago called Swift, he wont eat a bite of store bought Turkey still to this day, he remembers seeing them clean out the holding areas, drying the Turkey crap, grinding it and adding a certain amount of it back into their feed for bulk, if you ever go to a Turkey farm and smell what its like there, you'll know that smell well every time you walk into someones home when they have one in the oven because the smell of the Turkey poop is very noticeable when a store bought Turkey is cooking........ I only eat wild Turkeys and I raise my own Chickens free from all the growth hormones that store bought chickens are normally full of, chickens from the store usually go from hatching out of the egg to your plate in 6 weeks.....! this can only be done with drugs and hormones, chickens and Turkeys don't grow and fill out that fast on there own eating grain.

    So..... to sum it all up here......heck yeah I'll eat those pigeons Tom, main thing is that they haven't been drinking lots of toxic water form road side puddles and such, dont have to worry about that around here much.

    Thats right xseler, good ole squab, around the country folks they are likely to call them something like bridge chickens or something like that.....LOL!

    Ain't never ate a bad pigeon, dove or quail, those are some good eating birds, those yellow breasted medow larks are good eating also, I've eaten many kinds of wild birds, black birds ect. people think that is strange now days but thats how people lived for thousands of years, they lived off the land and ate many different animals, I grew up eating Armadillos, Alligator, birds, deer all kinds of birds even some rattle snake and several kinds of fish.

    fixed up right most things can be pretty good eating.

    i have enjoyed where you guys have gone with this made me hungry

    tom--i was wondering can you get the "pigeons" with a bb or are you talking pellet rifle 1000 or 1200 feet per second???

    I have done a pretty good job taking care of all the pigeons that dirtied/pooped up the window sills of my place ==1000 feet per second pellet rifle works for me

    Yep that will get-em and its fun doing it......... I have several air rifles. But the one I've done the most damage to the critters with is my old Benjamin .22 cal pellet rifle I traded my grand dad out of when I was a kid, that thing has taken hundreds of animals and put meat on the table many times.........!

    Since this thread is so far off the tracks, I'll pass on this little story.....

    I grew up in a small, rural town in SE Oklahoma. There was an old man that was a throw-back to ages past. When he went somewhere, he always returned by the same route. Hmmm.......why's this, you ask??

    He would always take a can of spray paint with him on his travels. When he happened onto a roadkill, he would stop, get outa his truck, and spray a paint dot on the animal facing the oncoming traffic. Hmmm.....why's this, you ask??

    Well, on the way back (same route, mind you), if he saw roadkill without a paint dot, he knew that this was fresh roadkill. He'd stop and throw it in the back of his truck ---- ta dah....supper!!

    True story. Really. Can't make this stuff up. Really.

    The Ruger 10-22 takes care of all the critters round here (with 25 & 30 rd clips lol). We lube the doves wings with 30wt oil around here cause their wings are so squeaky when they take off.

    I'd rather eat cheese than worms anyday......your signature ;)

    Agh, tractor supply was closed by the time I got there. I went with VHT engine enamel w/ceramic. It says that I have to heat cure the paint at 200 degrees for maximum durability and adhesion.

    Can i stick the whole china girl engine in my oven @200* for 1 hour and be safe?

    And such? That's kind of vague. Removing the magneto isn't somethin I'm familiar with. I guess I can just heat treat all the covers and the head and jug and not really worry about the middle pieces.

    Just go for an hour ride after the paint has cured for 12+ hours and it will be cured real good.

    Just want to say I may not be nearly as rich with money as some people here are, but having what I have and knowing the things I know has made me very blessed in many ways and Im very thankful for all the great people in my life including the great people on this forum I've had these many long distance conversations with off and on over the last 3 years, I am blessed and rich with the important things in life and for this I truly am very thankful.
    Now, im being honest and more back to the topic of this thread........!
    I really enjoy the time I spend here listening, learning and helping when I can or at least trying to.....lol!

    Peace, map

    As long as I can throw a couple of pigeons, and squirrels in a lunch bag, and ride my motor bicycle to the park for a picnic what could be better in life. Maybe a bacon hotdog, but naw, lets don't go there lol.

    Buba,
    I have an old Crossman Co2 BB pistol that is surprisingly accurate. I'm not the greatest pistol shooter but if I hold it steady enough it'll hit what I'm aiming at. A couple of weeks ago, when my wife was out of town I made the shot of the century.
    Pure luck, but I was aiming exactly where the BB went which was right between the eyes of a rabbit that had been coming in my yard and eating the grass down to the dirt. I was about 50 feet from him and popped him from a park bench where I was sitting. He dropped and never moved again. Eat my grass, will ya? Ha, no more.

    Anyone know anything about the Beeman (Beaman) .22 pellet rifle that Wally World sells for $130 ?
    It's supposed to fire at 1800fps and has an 8X scope. I'm a pretty fair shot with a long gun so those pigeons will be in danger if that gun is any good.

    Tom[/QUOTE]

    Yes I do Tom, My younger brother has one of them and he really likes it, his is the .177 cal model which doesn't have as much knock down power as the .22 cal does and he has had great results with his, very accurate air rifles, Beamann has been around for a long time and as far as I know they have never made junky air rifles, I have a China made knock off of either one of the RWS or Beamann models I've had for several years in .177 cal and I've keeled several Raccoons, Opossums, Squirrels, Wild Feral Cats.... by the way which I really hate to shoot...,but here in the country you get to many of those running around and they will destroy the quail and other small game population.

    To sum it up here Tom I'd say you wouldn't go wrong at all with the Beamann air rifle, put a good air rifle scope on it and dial it in at 30-40yds and you will really have a critter gitter.......Dang I'm glad we ended up on air rifle here, another one of the thing I really enjoy when I have the time.

    Here are a few links to some great deals on some air rifles.

    The link below is a place to get awesome pellets that will knock those critter in the dirt quick...

    Tom here is a link to a dual cal. Beamann rifle that comes with .177 barrel and a .22 cal barrel, this is just $30 bucks more than the Wally World Rifle and its like having two rifles in one, this is the one my brother has with only the .177 barrel for his.

    Wow, thanks Shan. I've been looking at that rifle for a few weeks and the only reason I haven't bought it is because I can't figure out how to sneak it into the house, or shoot it in the back yard without my animal loving wife finding out :)

    She's a catch and release type who wants me to let mice go instead of killing them when I catch them in a multi-catch trap I use. Funny, she doesn't have any problems putting poison on her veggie garden to kill pests. Guess they aren't warm and fuzzy enough for her.

    I might have to make a Wally run in the next couple of days.

    This has to be one of the most diversified threads ever started. Thanks Biknut :)

    Tom

    I worked for this company while going to school in the 80's, they were located in culver city. I got to play with some of the best air guns made. Got into some trouble too... We use to have gun fights in the store with the Crossman 38's using cleaning pellets. Ran outside the the store with the gun and someone called the cops. The manager was not happy when he was face down on the sidewalk with a real 38 to the back of his head.

    Good time for sure!!!!
