I've used a .177 pellet rifle that was only as powerful as these two pistols, when I was a kid and took a number of Ptarmigan. :grin: So I'm sure they will work, if you keep the range fairly short and use a good flat point or hollow point pellet.
I first thought about getting a springer pistol, but have heard they are harder to shoot accurately compared to the pump pistols.
