This time dog was going crazy sniffing something under the shed. Flashlight and pellet pistol in hand I got down to look and sure enough there he was.
POP!!
Had to hold flashlight alongside gun to light up area and front sight. Good to be able to do this. Not every shot you’ll take in life could be standing prone like you’re static on an indoor range. Not much more than 5yds but I’m happy.

This is kind of a unique pellet pistol. It’s a British made Beeman/Webley break barrel .177. Single cock single shot. Pushes them to about 500fps and it super accurate. I’ve had this thing for almost 30yrs.
Still works!!

Many years ago, there was a small mouse that would sometimes hang out behind the clothes dryer out in the garage.

Herbie (my mini-dachshund at the time) knew that mouse was there, and even got close to catching it a time or two.
Anyway he somehow got himself programmed to haul-ass out to the laundry room the instant he heard me pull the lint basket out for cleaning.
He could be clear across the house, but he'd come running his little heart out to get there.

Mind you, I had caught and released that mouse probably two years prior. :)

My first experiences at killing stuff occurred at age five, in the hog barn with Grandpa Harry, and involved rats at the south end of the air rifle.

Good memories...

Not only a pest, but a menace, and an invasive species wreaking havoc on the local ecosystem!
The government encourages the humane dispatch of these creatures.
And yet even though my backyard and lake is overrun with them I still can’t bring myself to shoot one? 🥺

I did not know. Did people buy them as pets and then turn them loose? I know pythons have been having their way in the Everglades.

You shoot iguanas? Are they considered pests?
see below...

a carefully placed shot right in the back of the head is quick, easy and effective...rifle quick kill is king...

we have had them bust into soffits and attics in our neighborhood...

It was eight degrees here when I got up this morning. Not an iguana or python in sight...
Different story in Southeast and Southwest Florida. We had a big freeze a few years ago that tamped down the population a bit, at least for a little while, but they're all over the place here these days!
