If you were in Canada, a "good" air rifle or pistol would be
considered a "firearm", i.e any air gun with a muzzle velocity greater
than 152.4 m/sec (approx. 500 fps).
I have lots of delicious recipes using rabbit.
We raised rabbits commercially for years (New Zealand Whites) and also
enjoyed them at table.
I wouldn't even consider eating a wild rabbit. Too many parasites,
viral and bacterial diseases including tularemia. Have you ever seen
the liver out of a wild rabbit? All those little white spots. Not on
my plate thanks.
Under 500 fps should still be effective for small game?
Um, I believe I posted to check the liver.
Dad NEVER ate bunny with liver spots. That was one of our checks for
Only rabbits with healthy livers were consumed.
They were in the minority.

Unfortunately, here in Canada, thanks to our previous Liberal
government, if I want to acquire a "real" air rifle nowadays I'd have
to renew my Firearms Acquisition Certificate and then register it.

(approx. 500 fps) would fall into the same category as if I was to buy
a .460 Weatherby Magnum.

I assume that your Firearms Acquisition Certificate is similar to our
Insta-Check system, wherein a background check is run through various,
including FBI, databases. There is no registration, per se, though who
are we kidding, there is always a paper trail.
I am also assuming that, by registering your *firearm*, any private
sales are subject to the same criteria? Like it is with handguns, at
least in the state in which I live. No registration of handguns, but
a Permit to Purchase and background check, through local, state and
federal databases. Private sales of long guns are not subject to

Our system is quite a bit different. For one thing, it is certainly
not an "Insta-Check". After you have taken a course in safe firearm
handling, or have proven you have sufficient knowledge of the subject
you can apply for a FAC. Initial cost is $25.00 and there is at least
a 28 day waiting period. A FAC is good for 5 years and there is a
$50.00 renewal fee if you renew before the current one expires.
You need a FAC to buy, borrow, trade or receive a firearm as a gift.
If you're interested, there's a synopsis at http://tinyurl.com/2r63o8
All this is supposed to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals.
Just make sure you pay your fee and have your application in at least
a month before you intend to rob that bank.
