He wont be able to shoot sparrows and starlings here its against the law, and why shoot birds you cant eat, unless they are a pest, over there, jeffHi there, I also own a barnett black widow. For bands i personally prefer red tapered tubes, these can kill birds at close range with no problem. I pretty much stuck within 20feet for hunting. I used 6mm and 8mm lead sinkers to take sparrows and starlings. Once at 10 feet, a .44 lead ball struck a crow in the torso - instant kill
So do you know what's ok to shot et in the uk ? I know rabbits ar ok if you intend to kil them but no more i know .
