re: I need a pellet gun recommendation that can kill a rabbit
Get one of these. You can drive tacks with them. I'd use the .22 caliber barrel. The velocity is 950 fps with that. It's subsonic with the .22 caliber barrel. The .177 caliber is 1250 fps and it's loud! So far I have killed a couple possums and a few squirrels, but mostly I use it to train sparrows.

I paid $183 for it, with shipping.

Saw three this morning. For the most part, anything not planted in a pot gets eaten to the ground. Even bell pepper plants. For whatever reason, the don't eat strawberry plants, squash or cucumber.

feed them in a different area and they’ll probably leave your garden alone. You can also put up a short mesh barrier fence

they are just being rabbits

Thanks for the recommendations. I have fenced off our fruit and vegetable gardens. The bastards are now eating our flowers. It is war.

Just got a Gamo Swarm Fusion Gen 2. I'm very happy with it. Much more accurate than my old Benjamin pump. The 10 shot magazine is great.

Name checks out…

Just get a recommended pellet gun from the many listed already here. You can get pretty close to them at night with a good light in their eyes. I’m told..

If you're looking to do this in your back yard, and bored and wanting to play around, you can do what we did a few years back-

go find an old Sony camcorder that can do IR. Mount it onto your scope with a couple of hose clamps. It's not 'true night vision', but that doesn't matter... go buy some IR floodlamps and put them in place of your regular porch lights.

Now, go buy a cheapo motion detector porch light, put an IR lamp in that too, and rig it to trigger something inside the house too. We used a red lamp. Set it up on a kill-zone, and have the rifle benched in place covering that zone. Put up some bait of some sort, to draw in the critters (he had a mouse problem near a feed bin. That "mouse problem" quickly became a fun diversion).

The lamps light up the yard like daylight, but only in the IR spectrum. It's pitch black otherwise, and critters get a lot bolder.

The biggest issue became, we got rid of all the mice, and ended up wanting some more to come in

It’s like Redneck Rainbow 6.
