get a .177 pellet gun with a target pellet (pointy), they use then to hunt small animals, so they would end those poor guys since they do have the power.

any firearm that shoots over 400fps is lethal to small game such as rabbits and squirrels I know because I have actually hunted them with my airsoft m4 and it killed them out right but you have to hit them in the head or neck anywhere else is just going to make them bleed out at a slow rate.

Been in a really similar situation with my cat... skip the airsoft get a strong stomach and a shovel/rock and put it out of its misery. A pellet gun point blank could also do the trick.

A 500fps or more .22 pellet would be more humane. They usually hunt with 1000fps .22 air rifles. Those have enough joules on impact to kill with 1 shot. They require a permit though.

.177 is only good for small birds. Squirels and rabbit require more.

500 fps .22 pellet can do small rats, squirrels, maybe a small rabbit... its not the best choice though. And if you're going to go above 500 fps (requires PAL) you might as well get a real .22LR and not worry about it. There are several decent .22LRs you can get in the same price range (~$200) as low end high-power .22 air guns.

I know for a fact that a 400fps .177 pointy pellet isn't that great on small animals, been tested on a skunk (not me, a long time ago, don't ask).

It took way more shots than you'd want to bring it down

I call bs on this, and if true, that's a pretty shitty and inhumane thing to do, not to mention bordeline retarded if you're doing this where the public can see you with an M4

Public or no public. Firing airsoft guns at animals is a sign of pure stupidity and is probably considered animal cruelty which has maximum term of 5 years in jail or a hefty fine...
I don't how a squirrel or a rabbit can be killed by airsoft unless person in question is a sneaky "leet delta blackops stepznaz" operator who shoots squirrels point blank in the eye...

Regardless of whether or not an Airsoft or Pellet gun COULD kill, it would be illegal to do so.

Oshawa has by-laws which make it an offence to discharge a Firearm within city limits, except for certain areas where hunting is permitted. The Supreme Court of Canada ruled, just this week, that this included any barreled weapon which shoots projectiles faster than 214 fps, which includes most Airsoft and Pellet guns.

Despite the fact that yes most cities do in fact have bylaws regarding discharge etc. try and keep your paranoia in the appropriate thread please. It seems like your sole aim here is to spread your opinion of the recent rulings.
