Yes, it’s legal (by 0.25″). No, it doesn’t just sit around in trees. I use it to dust vermin. Dust – as in: if a vermin is close enough to get shot with this gun, it’ll turn to dust.
It’s not picky on the type of vermin either. Anything from 0 to 4 legs.
The “official” definition of vermin pretty much sums up the vermin duster’s clientele:
- wild or feral animals, including birds and reptilian, that are harmful to flora, fauna, farm, or family, or that carry disease (e.g., fox, rodents, raccoon)
- people perceived as despicable and as causing problems for the rest of society or one’s home and loved ones
