I certainly don't and I believe the laws might have something to say about this... frankly, I wouldn't trust it to take down a duck.

Nope havent done it. And not planning on doing it. There probaly is a law against it and even if u did hit the duck u wouldnt get a good kill on it you wouldnt just wound it and then you would have a crippled duck which isnt good !

i may be wrong but thats covered under state and federal law's. a pellet gun is a rifle. the new co2 rifle are some what effective on black birds, but i'm sure not on ducks (epically ringncks)

you wouldent even wound it....i shot black birds that dont always die first shot...and its unlikly you can hit a landing duck....( 30) miles an hour...with one pelet...not sayit cant be done...and if you were planing on shooting them on the water which in my oppion is wrong in every direction....and yess in america and canada you cant shoot lead.....this was a realy stupid thred

ok this post is stupid to begin with but they now dont always make pellets out of lead they make them out of zinc and they are not coated with lead because lead gets the barrel real dirty and i do shoot pellet guns but not at ducks just at black birds and starlings every once in a while

you could use the non toxic pellets made for hunting and when the duck lands you cap it in the head

Or, you could just shoot a 12 gauge with 3" #4's.

First of all shoot birds in the air not on the water. Next its illigal regardless of what kind of pellet. having shot many birds with a pellet gun over my younger years It does get old and I get so much more satisfation taking decoying birds on the wing. Learn how to hunt right and pass it on
