It did for a while john until i got the combo right , I hit both of these boys many times with what i though where solid vital organ kill shots but they would just run away to come back later . Even beeman crow mag pellets where useless then i switched to head shots with gamo hunter domed pellets and 2 shots 2 kills in my gun this combo groups a half dollor at 100ft consistant . As for no problem at under 40 ft with a good shot yes john but i'am sneaking up to only 10yrds from the side door i'am in total darkness while they eat in the light . head shots only = ethical kills from under 15 yrds are very possible still last night while i sleeped more bait was gone this morning . I love this gun it's a gamo varmint hunter 17 cal and worth every penny{$200} . with a crow mag pellet i have taken sqweeks from trees at 100 ft body shots to vitals {will post pic's after work} glad you boys like the raccoons . But i now have recieved permittion from a local bar owner to help remove feral cats in his yard and of course his land is bordering about 300 acres of state land he has a large amount of cats hassling his roosters and hens . He said the rats are also around if i care to take the time Plus my benji .22 cal discovery comes tommorow so now he can join the fun
