It would kill it at point blank but you would probably be charged with causing suffering / animal cruelty if ever caught doing it.

You have to apply to your local police force to get a proper rifle, or shotgun. Get a cabinet, the police check you out etc, come and interview you/check your cab etc. Normally will take a few months

You will need to apply for a FAC to the police force of your county, you will need written permission for the land you intend to shoot and you will need to have a pretty crime free past. Also it is not recommended although not illegal to use rimfire for fox control so you would probably be advised to apply for centrefire but as this is your first application it would be difficult without a mentor to overlook your shooting.

Best of luck.

You need to get yourself fixed up with a shotgun licence and a nice double barrel or semi auto 12 bore. Or apply for a Firearms Certificate from your Police FO and then, get yourself a nice bolt action .22LR or .223 rifle for foxes mate. I believe it is illegal to hunt and shoot foxes with just a legal-limit air rifle.


Fox shooting is a no-no for air rifles fella! :thumbs:
