Nice big target and urban ones are easy if they come on your property, you have a 24/7 hyde and an open window is ideal to shoot out of. If you use an upstairs window you have better vision and the earth acts as a back stop to prevent hitting anything should you miss your target. A 10flb air rifle is more than up to the job but it has to be a head shot unless you hit the sweet spot in the chest.
It's legal on your own property but obviously never point the gun out of your own boundaries even to 'spot' a fox, neighbours can often get the hump and you don't want reporting to the police for shooting at neighbours gardens etc!!
Pigeon and rats are also vermin and fair game.
