[QUOTE=Nick K]Do you have or will you need a firearms certificate?
Most here don't need a cert., our 2nd amend right to bear arms is still alive and well in most states. Can't say the same about CA, NY, MA, or IL, but it's getting better, and I can't wait till Parker v DC gets to the SCOTUS :bully: .

Here in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, there are bunnies EVERYWHERE. Even in the winter you see them running through yards in the middle of town left and right. I thought about getting an air rifle and killing them with BBs and cooking them, but then in the summer I see the Chemlawn trucks spray the neighbor's yard, and I realize those bunnies are full of God-knows-what chemicals.
I've also heard that rabbit meat doesn't have enough protein to live on. Apparently survivalists say not to hunt them if you're lost. Is this true?
My car's broke down, so I walk everywhere. On the way to work the other day, I passed a rabbit in front of a house, it was in the street, laying in the leftover snow and ice in the gutter, and shivering. It looked like it's back leg was broke, and it was possibly frozen to the ground. It broke my heart to see it suffer, but all I had on me was a knife, pepperspray, and my steeltoes. I called 911, told them where it was, and asked them to send animal control out.

There's not enough fat in bunnies to keep you healthy, which is why you shouldn't use them as your sole source of foods. If you eat the brains, this will cease to be a problem. Gross, but you're trying to survive.
Save your self the trouble and poison the wascally little cocksuckers.

What you need is a little armalite
Depending on where you live,an M-16 or a Bushmaster look alike can be lots of fun. The Irish think so...

Yes, yes, fabulous, you've all been very helpful. Now shut up.
Jones, where do you actually live? U.S.?
What is your experience?
Are you planning to shoot these bunnies on your own land? That's the way it sounds. What are the legalities of using a firearm there?
Basically, if you're going to be able to take shots at sitting rabbits, a .22 offers better and cheaper plinking when you're not hunting wabbits. A 10/22 as suggested above is a good choice. There are lots of others.
A shotgun would be fine for rabbits sitting still but really shines on running rabbits. In my family, we hunt rabbits with shotguns because tend to walk the woods or railroad tracks trying to flush rabbits to run. There are people who do that with rifles and even pistols, but mostly for the challenge in my experience. We just want bunnies in the pot.
Oddly enough I've never had rabbit stew, but pan-fried rabbit with biscuits and gravy is delicious.

About a week ago I mowed the backyard and there was a rabbit underneath the lawnmower. He's lucky the lawnmower didn't turn on when I pulled it the first time. I ran over a rabbit's nest. There were these two baby rabbits the size of my fist. I felt quesy killing something so young and small so I just ignored them. I checked the nest and the mother abandoned it. There are two baby rabbit skeletons in the backyard so I guess she abandoned them for some reason.
The rabbits don't even run. They just stare at you like "what are you doing, you don't live here." How much does a .22 or a normal shotgun usually cost.カンフー
