22" or longer barrel is your friend.

Aguila Colibri FTW
Range is short, really short.
Long barrel makes it go "phfft" like a fart.


Super Colibri have a bit more power and better range and it sounds like "PHFFT!".

I'd recon 1-2 shots before anyone notices (depending on how close your neighbors are)

Might also give the CCI Quiets a try. They sound a little louder than the Super Colibri, just IMHO.

PHFFT ........ Hahahahahahahahaha

Back to OP post, get a working dog such as : German Shepherd, Rottweiler or Golden Retriever . The dog will scare the varmint away.
A neighbor just call 911 and said "A guy on the back yard with assault weapon shoot to my house"....... You're f*ck !

You can buy a recurve bow for like $100-150, and break no laws, and make less noise.

Depending on the area and other factors various laws may still be being broken.

OK, I will amend that statement to be where I live. Of course, my neighbors would be PO'd if I shot some raccoons with my bow. I just saw a whole family of em in my yard this morning.

You can eat anything, with enough hot sauce!

Buy or rent a live trap. (Home Depot) (Amazon) Trap them, then dispatch them - any way you want. I've caught cats, skunks, raccoons, and squirrels. My current live traps aren't big enough for raccoons. A buddy borrowed my larger traps and it fell out of his truck and it was destroyed. It was a Havahart we got from a pest controller who was selling his old traps and replacing with new ones.

Make sure the Trash Panda doesn't look like this or you'll be hosed.

We used to shoot hundreds of CCI subsonics a week in a business in downtown San Francisco and no one ever noticed

I voted "10+"

Have a friend run a power washer or air compressor while you shoot.

In theory I could run a machine gun in my back yard suppressed. In theory.

I know the actual number for Colibri's is 7 before my neighbor called and said "WTF? You shooting at something?"

I said 'yep' and he came over and we continued with the fun shooting rats off the back wall.

Let me tell ya...a Marlin 39 is perfect for Colibri's or CB caps.

When you're trying to dispatch a pest or varmint near your house, you gotta ask yourself, "What if I just wound it and now we have a scared, desperate, wounded animal running around"?

Coyotes and raccoons especially. They're mean.

If you're trying to kill something that might endanger kids or other folks in your hood, you better actually kill it rather than wounding it.

Otherwise, leave it alone.

When I moved out of my last house, moved the couch in the garage and around 300-500 empty Super Colibre casings were found underneath. Never one complaint, as mentioned a 22" barrel is your friend.

I don't think Colibris or super Colibris are being made anymore. If anyone has any to part with I'd be willing to buy it.

Throw some firecrackers in the backyard a couple times so when you use the CB caps they will think it's fireworks.

I my neighborhood nobody would even give it a thought, between the gang bangers, the SO spray and pray and the guys firing at the LEO Chopper who would notice a 22.

I voted two because you could get away with that almost anywhere. Without knowing more that's my safe choice. Last house I loved in I'd fire a bunch off many afternoons with my girls in back yard cheering me on. No houses behind me but neighbors right in either side ntheynjust didn't care.

Quiets are quiet out of a 77/22 with 18" barrel, like a 60's toy cap gun quiet.

Out of a MKIII - little bit of an ear ring.

Wife an I did a backyard test one evening. The rifle resulted in a "huh, just sight it in for 20 yds and dispatch rats with it.

The MKIII resulted in her scrambling into the house squealing and giggling like a little school girl.

I live in a large city---neighbors too close for firearms and city makes pellet guns same as firearms, so no go… Found an old slingshot I had---loaded it with a smooth, round rock about a 1/2" across---coon made a noise like a dog hit by a car---never saw him again...

cci quiets are only what I use. Sounds like a cap gun out of my Browning lever action with 22" barrel. Barrel length it's the key to keeping the sound down and not having your neighbors spaz out. Or borrow a suppressed PCP air rifle. I wiped out an entire family of raccoons twice using both. I wouldn't let any dog get tangled up with a pack of raccoons.

Mind sharing where you got them from?

Appears the Super Colibri is still being made. It's just super hard to find in stock.

Where I live, the discharge of firearms is not prohibited.

But I do have neighbors, and am a considerate kind of guy. Super Colibri out of my old single shot Winchester rifle is literally, 'Click...' followed by the sound of whatever the bullet hits.

So, if shooting at targets on a backboard, it is, 'Click...thwap'.

A couple of days ago, I dispatched a varmint in my front yard. It sounded like, 'Click...flop flop...'

I bought a brick a few years ago from sgammo. I guess I need to start looking for more.

Many cities put pellet rifles in the same category as firearms. When I lived in a bigger city with a house on an acre, I bought a stoeger X20S .177 to handle the pests. It's rated as one of the best in class for noise reduction. I shot several skunks and raccoons with it. I never shot them in the body, only the head and it was always lights out, no noise.

I moved to a house on 21 acres and now, we don't even have skunks, raccoons or possums around here. I still use the pellet rifle for varmints if they're in a spot with a less than ideal background. The .177 will stop if it hits a small bush, the .22 will not.

I was doing that (no parks here, but taking them a few miles away) but they got wise to the traps.

The dogs are not effective in running them off long-term. It limits the options.

Just trap them, much easier that way. Buy a Have-a-heart brand trap, much more effective. Then shoot them or drowned them in a trash can. Don't release them, ask any wildlife biologist or F&G warden, they will tell you the same.
