I have a rat that lives near my door way, and I thought it was killed by a fox, but there is some incarnation of the varmint back.

I've never really been much of a gun type. I think I've only shot a BB gun when I was a kid and that was it, but now I want a gun to kill that rat.

However, what sort of gun would do? Is a BB gun enough? I live in Massachusetts so there are probably all sorts of unconstitutional measures against me owning a sling shot, but there are ways around such a thing.

Still, what sort of gun will do?

A BB gun is fine but a handgun would be great so that you can tell your friends you popped a cap in a rats a** XD

I do know you can get little shotgun shells for certain handguns which would probably work best.

That's what the shotgun shells are for, they are basically a bunch of BB's on the end of a bullet. I think they only make them for revolvers, a .357/.38 special would be good.

The point of this is to have a more surgical strike among the animals.

A 50 caliber machine gun is needed.

(but really a .22 rifle should do just fine and it's just like shooting a BB gun which is .177 caliber)

Depends where you hit it, but if you live inside city limits you're probably reduced to that.

You realize that the title sounds very much like a suicide threat, right?

Forget the gun. Get some WD-40 and a match. That is homemade napalm at it solves 99.99% of all my work and domestic problems.

Unless you have a problem with it, why don't you just borrow a friends cat. I've done this before, (and actually own one now) and it worked really well on a mouse I couldn't get rid of. Cats are killing machines, I think it's an easier solution than shooting up the place.

I'd say a 22. Rifle/Pistol.

Easy to shoot, won't do much damage, and will do the job well.

Yeah that'll do.

If you want something more lethal, you could just go with a .22 rifle. Recoil is practically non-existent and you have your shoulder to brace it against. Even my sister can hit the broad side of a barn with a .22
