FWIW, I've chronoed one of the more recent Crossman .22 pump-up guns, similar to Benjamin .22 that I had as a kid. I used it to take many crows and cottontails, even a few jacks - but, as stated above, shot placement is most critical with any of 'em. With (max recommended) 8 pumps, I get right at 600 fps out of current 22 Crossman.

But, technically speaking, with some critters (such as squirrels and quail) being "game animals", not legal to take with (even powerful) airguns in some states, so check your regs ...
