RE: air rifle vs. coyote
a pellet gun loses a lot of energy, out past about 20 yards. With regular balistic tip pellets mine wil only kill a starling to 25 yards, with the pba raptor pellets about 30 yards. I have shot coons in the head with the raptor pellets(1200 fps), they dont die. Ifaraptorpellet hit where his skull meets his spine it might though, or through his eye. That would be a tough shot, and it might not work. you can try it with your pellet gun, but im stickin with my .223.
