Are air guns any good against snakes and coyotes and at what range?

Snakes with a hi-power single kod, yes.

Coyotes? If you're talking off the shelf Wally World airguns, forget it.

There are some extremely high power large caliber airguns out there that could humanly take down a coyote.
I myself would never consider taking any game larger than a rabbit, etc. with a single kok air rifle.

I have no idea what a KOD is? I have not touched an air gun since my brother had a Sheridan rifle many years ago. Heck, are they made in Sheridan,Illinois?

Tom,
Typlical graphlical error, kod. Should be kok!

The correct word for kok is apparently banned here which is the same word used for; rooster, stop valve or in this case the procedure to enable a gun for firing.
Everytime i used the correct word in past posts they automatically got cancelled.

Yeah, i got one of those Sheridan pump rifles too. Haven't used it in years, don't even know where it is offhand.

There are specialty high power airguns out there that are capable of taking down even big game. I understand Lewis and Clark had one on their famous Western expedition.

Some very nice air rifles. I'm into old target rimfires, but have great respect for the quality airguns too; especially those Germans. ^_^



one more wheatie..

Rimfire is nice and i shoot them a lot in addition to hi-power firearms on property. But there's just something about a good air rifle that's addicting.
Cheap ammo, no need for ear silencers, can shoot just about anywhere including back yards, can take small game, marksmanship practice, etc. etc.
