    I am from Greece….And there is no limitation of the caliber of an airgun …..and with no licence to own one air fifle…..!!!!!
    BUT……………Here in Greece the fucking great minds….!!!!!! Forbid the scopes and the silencers….hahahahahaahahahahahahahahha…..!!!!
    And ONLY if you are a member of a shooting Club you will be able to shot ONLY paper targets…..Nothing else…
    And of course all that is FOR
    tax collection….!!!!!! THEY CARE ΟΝLY TO TAKE OUR MONEY…..BECAUSE GREECE IS THE NO1 COUNTRY WITH
    THE MOST PAINFULL TAXES……

  5. Brandon Carbee on November 13, 2019 at 10:31 pm

    So is it just a US thing where you can shoot a rabbit with an AK? /s

  6. Jason Davis on November 13, 2019 at 10:31 pm

    Great vid

  7. AirGhandi on November 13, 2019 at 10:35 pm

    Best regards from Germany!!

    Well said. I was thinking this today reading a Facebook post.

  9. William Davis on November 13, 2019 at 10:39 pm

    Yes we say garage man get with it. But I feel sorry for shooters from across the pond and there draconian gun laws.We give no breaks.😬😁 we cant help brits have all these frivolous state government and local rules. When to shoot , can’t shoot this or that. Poor bunnies flop a little extra here big deal. No well get a .17 Mgr no more rabbit flops!

    Size doesn’t matter

  14. nasachusetts on November 13, 2019 at 10:42 pm

    It’s not only about the damn headshot. At certain angles a headshot is not quick enough. Especially when it exits and doesn’t ricochet around the brain.

  15. paulbrown357 on November 13, 2019 at 10:42 pm

    Your video’s r fickn hilarious

  16. Hiram Abiff on November 13, 2019 at 10:43 pm

    I WAS WATCHING SOME LIMEY IN ENGLAND AIMING AT A SQUIRREL WITH HIS BB GUN AND I GOT OLD ENOUGH FOR SOCIAL SECURITY BEFORE HE PULLED THE TRIGGER. I BEE A WILD AMERICAN INDIAN, I LEARNED TO SHOOT WHEN I WAS 4. I GOT MY FIRST 22 RIFLE WHEN I WAS 5 AND I WAS A VARMINT HUNTER EMPLOYED ON A 5000 ACRE CATTLE RANCH WHEN I WAS 6. GOT MY FIRST PHEASANT WHEN I WAS 8 AND MY FIRST DEER WHEN I WAS 12. I HAVE TAKEN MORE DEER ON THE RESERVATION WITH A 22 PISTOL THAN MOST HUNTERS HAVE EVER SEEN. MY DAD’S BEST FRIEND IN THE U.S. ARMY WAS A GERMAN SNIPER IN THE WAR AGAINST ENGLAND AND HE TAUGHT ME THE FINE ART OF SNIPING. WHEN I WAS IN THE AIR FORCE I TAUGHT THE OLYMPIC TEAM HOW TO HIT THINGS. I BET I HAVE SHOT MORE BULLETS IN MY LIFE TIME THAN YOU CAN STACK IN A RAIL ROAD CAR. BUT I MANUFACTURE NEARLY ALL MY OWN AMMO SO IT ISN’T EXPENSIVE, ABOUT 2 CENTS PER ROUND FOR A 44 MAGNUM. AMERICANS HAVE FREEDOM AND LIMEYS ARE SLAVES. BUILD YOUR OWN GUNS AND BOWS AND GET OFF YOUR KNEES TO THE QUEEN…. AND BE SURE TO WEAR YOUR BURKA IF YOU GO OUTSIDE.

    who else notices that uk flag colour is in usa flag?

  18. Duncan Sands on November 13, 2019 at 10:44 pm

    While i love the 2nd amendment and wish we in England had it, the air rifle has made me a way better shot than had i just gone to real stuff, when in the states i found i could hit everything, because an air rifle teaches you just about everything you need to know!! You have to be very good to shoot a 1.77 or a 2.2 pelet rifle and hit the target! Great video!

  19. Hytekrednek Bama on November 13, 2019 at 10:44 pm

    I would love to see you do a video shooting feral cats

  20. Promotions Only on November 13, 2019 at 10:45 pm

    It has long been argued, and I agree, that non-fac hunters are better hunters in the short to mid range hunting game…say to 50 meters.
    FAC hunters are better at the long range game due to their equipment

  21. Angry Investors - take control on November 13, 2019 at 10:45 pm

    You think you guys got problems – here in Australia Air Rifles are just about unheard of and air pistols are illegal – that’s it – (in fact any pistol is illegal and I’d get arrested and maybe locked-up if I went and bought as much as a toy replica pistol). Pistols of any kind cannot be purchased in Australia. (OK some people like farmers and club-members and serious hunters are allowed real big guns which fire real bullets and shotguns too but no-one except the cops have hand guns and those big real guns are heavily regulated).

    As an ex-Brit who’s lived without firearms first in the UK and now Aus I’ve come to think of them as an unnecessary item – but I’m not anti-gun.

    I agree with you about the Wolverine – what a work of art – if you can afford one.

    But your video is dated 2014

    Now it’s 2018 – talk about power! – what about the big-bore Texans.

    Whew!

  22. Ulster Infidel on November 13, 2019 at 10:47 pm

    Here in Northern Ireland (UK) we need a firearm certificate till own any air gun over 1 joule which is 0.738 foot pounds, because of this licence owners usually gets the 30+ foot pound air rifles

  23. Yeet patato on November 13, 2019 at 10:49 pm

    Hey how do you fill the air in your pcp air guns?

  24. Saad Alfo on November 13, 2019 at 10:50 pm

    Stop it at 6:18 good illustration of destructiveness. 😀

  25. sailing tersancta on November 13, 2019 at 10:52 pm

    You are right in both comments its just our lousy uk gov on our 12 flb so shots have to be 100% lights out shot placement is critical

  26. robert green on November 13, 2019 at 10:53 pm

    great video fella

  27. Jim Omalley on November 13, 2019 at 10:53 pm

    we have lots of freaking oil if people ie you know who will let us use. it just saying

  28. Filip Aug Gjø on November 13, 2019 at 10:54 pm

    wtf is wrong with u dude?????

  29. SpyerSecol 001 on November 13, 2019 at 10:55 pm

    Beautiful air gun. Love the furniture on it.

  30. Realtalktv 936-367-1241 on November 13, 2019 at 10:55 pm

    It passed through both rabbits I can see it in the background on the first rabbit and hear it on the second

  31. HW Aguchak on November 13, 2019 at 10:55 pm

    A good example for demonstration would be shooting water for splash effect!!

  32. fr4nk0_grgr fortnitegod on November 13, 2019 at 10:56 pm

    I just don’t like that you are blaming hunters for that and not Government

  33. #1G_amer on November 13, 2019 at 11:01 pm

    I love u Ted ur one of my favorite YouTubers and this was posted a while ago but I’m known for a good shot so idk if that is it but I’m dropping rabbits with one shot with a crosman pumpmaster 776

  34. Wayne Tadlock on November 13, 2019 at 11:02 pm

    I’m from the US, and I did know the EU air was restricted. I did NOT realize to what degree. Kinda’ like comparing my comparing my .177 springer to a .30 cal. PCP. I learned a long, L-O-N-G time ago that low power shooting requires a lot more ability/skill/craft than heavy fire power and high grade optics. Yes, I know this video is 4 years old…

  35. Colin Recardo on November 13, 2019 at 11:03 pm

    Ted you are so spot on.

  36. Joshua Block on November 13, 2019 at 11:03 pm

    i may have laughed a bit too hard at 5:40

  37. KamuiPan on November 13, 2019 at 11:05 pm

    UK people cannot even carry a knife! LOL. They live on totalitarian regime. They even created focus of crime with the massive immigration of muslims. London is almost a no-go zone. That include others country from Europe. Pathetic. RIP europe.

  38. Red Blue40 on November 13, 2019 at 11:07 pm

    Queens fart?…..

  39. Star Crazy Events on November 13, 2019 at 11:08 pm

    Hey Ted, thanks for all your videos. You inspired me to get into air guns. I bought an fx wildcat mk2 and put the x liner in it. It’s crazy accurate. Also, after seeing your vid on the northern flicker I put out a feeder to try and help them out. Within weeks we had a Male come regularly and just the other day a female has showed up. I built them a house so just waiting to see if they take it. Is there a way to email you? Thanks for everything!

  40. Steven Carson on November 13, 2019 at 11:14 pm

    I’m English your right chest shots are fine especially with 35ft lb upwards you have excellent laws that allow that 👍

  41. Shaynna Lakatos on November 13, 2019 at 11:14 pm

    What is wrong with u they did nothing to you u are sitting here posting all this shit on YouTube killing animals for ur own entertainment while I’m sitting here crying that shit is not funny it’s cruel if u are gonna kill a rat u do it if they are infesting around ur home or in your home u don’t go somewhere where they are in there own home and kill them like how would u feel if u got shot or ur friend got shot even in heaven u would still hurt wtf is wrong with u .

  42. Alex Tham on November 13, 2019 at 11:16 pm

    Can in Malaysia bro…

  43. Jason Reed on November 13, 2019 at 11:21 pm

    I believe hydrostatic shock is what you’re referring to.

  44. ben addison on November 13, 2019 at 11:22 pm

    Absolutely spot on. I would love to shoot in America. Great videos keep them coming 🇬🇧🇺🇸

  45. Matt Chilton on November 13, 2019 at 11:23 pm

    In the uk if someone breaks into your house in the middle of the night and pulls a knife and you shoot them you go straight to prison ahahaa proud to b british

  46. Arctic Nitemare on November 13, 2019 at 11:23 pm

    Says that Americans should go and get a 12 pound gun,
    Americans: all ready done

  47. Ernie Robinson on November 13, 2019 at 11:26 pm

    I really need to get an air rifle lol
    Those annoying Woodchucks in my backyard are damaging my lawn 🙁

  48. Don Ronaldo on November 13, 2019 at 11:27 pm

    Well… You lucky guys… In germany we are limited to 5.5 Foot Pounds or 7.5 Joules and any hunting with any other that a rifle, used by a certified hunter at its payed area (from €1100 a year) is prohibited… You lucky guys 🙁

  49. Caden Seegers on November 13, 2019 at 11:28 pm

    Look again Ted! The pellet exited the first rabbit. Look behind it in the pine needles!

  50. Dave Bell on November 13, 2019 at 11:28 pm
