I don't want to get into a lengthy discussion but.... is there any little handgun out there that would kill a chickens and rabbits that somebody could suggest for me? I tried killing a Muscovy duck for food yesterday that I put upside down in a cone with a knife and couldn't do it. I tried. I was ok watching them kill it but.... I couldn't. I know if it was already dead I'd be able to cut its throat to bleed it out because I've done that to a Mute Swan before and had no problems. For what it's worth... I've been trained on ringing the necks of starlings and sparrows and Mute swans and I know how and still can't bring myself to do it so I need a way to kill chickens really bad that I can live with and drowning them in a trash can of water is out. Looks like it's going to be a small hand gun for me. Really sorry to disappoint anyone.... slicing throats just isn't in me.
