Ha!!! That has got to be the funniest thing I've ever heard. Mountain lion defense with a pellet gun
. A guy knows that there is a potentially deadly animal on his property and he chooses an air pistol for defense. I wouldn't trust an air pistol on a large bird let alone a 180lb Mountain Lion. If lived out in the woods, I would definitely have several firearms just in case there is a freak snow storm and I couldn't get supplies, it would be nice to have a firearm to bring some food to the table in an emergency. Having a mountain lion on my property would be another reason I would buy a firearm. Personally I wouldn't trust anything less than a 357Magnum pistol on a mountain lion and is generally what I bring into the woods.
