Air guns that are not for sissies

Speaking of Pellet guns…
Most people when they think about defending themselves and buying a fire arm, the last thing they would consider is an air rifle, right?
We all grew up with a .177 (4.5mm) pellet gun that we shot a few birds with when we were about 10 years old.
But what would you do if I told you that these guns were also available in .22, 9mm .45 and .50 ?
That is right. You can own a pellet gun that is strong enough to kill a Kudu with one shot…
The people who are the experts in pellet guns, especially the heavy caliber ones are the Koreans.
Their laws have made it almost impossible to own fire arms, so they use Scuba cylinders to pre charge rifles to 200bar so they can go hunting. And these things have about the same accuracy as an AK-47 over 300 meters.
Take a look for yourself.
