Drac, nobody was talking about deer hunting, they were talking about hunting small game, cats are small, and pests/varmints.
Now as I’ve explained before, a lot of these home-made arms have more power than most BB/pellet guns, the bigger projectile lending more knockdown force. In other words, its more “humane” to shoot a cat with a marble fired at 600FPS than BB fired at the same velocity. And 600FPS is neither an uncommon nor hard to achieve velocity.
I was told by another modd, BC pneumatics, that it was okay to talk about hunting.

This is okay by me

, as long as these 'arms' are based off of pneumatics or combustion principles, and are of sufficient power to bring down the intended game. (Again, no pointlessly painful ass-shots.)...
Here’s the topic that this came from if you don’t believe me: link
I believe that the reaper rifle has sufficient power to bring down the intended game, I’ve seen pics of some of his kills, they’re nice clean center mass shots, I believe that the crow thing died faster than some of the deer that I’ve seen shot by a .30-06! I call that humane!
As a side note:
Most bows shoot arrows at. I believe, 300FPS. A spud gun could easily shoot an arrow at 600FPS, there for; it’s more “humane” to shoot a deer with a spud gun than a bow.
Also it more “humane” to shoot a deer with a .50-110 than a .308 as the .50-110 is a much more powerful round. But a deer can be taken with a .223.
Don’t lock the topic, if you feel you must do something just delete my post.
