800 fps in .22 caliber air rifles is the basic minimum for clean humane kills of small games.
The best bet is to go to a hunting store and ask a hunter on what equipments that you will need for your planned activity. They are the best people to ask. Airsofters are not into killing anything with our equipments. We engage in games in private fields. We shoot each other and we laugh. No one dies at the end of the day.
