Air rifle vs 22 RF? The other day I had a snapping turtle crawl up along my house to hang out for a while. It didn't leave for a couple days and I decided to shoot it with a pump up 22 air rifle (Sheridan). First shot through the shell, barely had any effect. Next shot in the head and it still didn't die.... decided to just let it lie for a couple hours and see what it did....came back out of the house and it was gone.... maybe a dog got it or it crawled away. Don't know. The 22LR had considerable more power than a typical air rifle. It would have been dead after the first shot with the 22LR. I just didn't want to make all the noise with the 22 LR.
