By putting another pellet in to head is a lot quicker than getting up and running over and necking it ,that normally does it
And I take it you do that while its doing backflips and jumping about? The John Wayne of the airgun world...
As said each situation is different in that case it would be quickly picked up and despatch end by hand. Either way has it's place and basic common sense tells you which is appropriate at the time.
Obviously not , pianoman didn't say it was doing back flips and jumping in the air clapping did he
You have got read each situation, when something happens like that and take the quickest method of despatch and most of the time that is with another pellet to the head
So less of your sarcastic comments
Didn't he, I get the impression the bunny was hardly lying still!
From the OP.
My shot hit it clean into the head. It instantly backflipped and began writhing....and writhing. Then rolling and turning over violently. Blood was pouring out of the side of its head from a point on its head I could see was right on the button to have killed it outright. But it was still breathing and rolling over and over.
I reloaded quick, got into aim, got my breathing down and fired a SECOND shot which hit it on the opposite side of its head to the first shot. Still it spun over and kicked like hell. Still breathing. I could see it was in absolute agony.
A quick reload and shot number THREE hit it clean between the eyes through its forehead. STILL it kept on writhing, slower now but, I saw it was still breathing as it gasped for air and its chest rose and fell.
The FOURTH shot hit behind its right eye, almost onto the first one. That, mercifully, put it out of its misery and killed it.
