Well the other night while watching a movie we heard a lot of noise on the back porch and just thought the dogs were playing until I heard our Chihuahua yelping. We went outside and she and our Boston terrier ran a Raccoon up on the roof so I got my AZ tuned .22 Rapid with JSB 18.1 going around 980+ FPS and hit it in the forehead from about 20 yards away. The Raccoon did a back flip off the roof landed on the shed roof and bounced off and over the fence into the neighbor’s yard and that was the end of him.

A friend of mine has a nice house on the edge of town with a shake roof. Two coons tore through it and were living in the attic. They can be destructive sometimes too.

Dang. I was hoping it was some neighbor you didnt really know, you shoot a raccoon into his yard, then the next day you see him walk outside to get his paper and hes wearing a raccoon skin cap.

That would be funny, I plan on getting a few .25 airguns to go with my .177s and .22s next year so I can take bigger game easier. Do you think a high power .25 would take a coyote with a head shot?
