I'm looking for a bb/pellet gun to keep the numbers of sparrows and starlings down around my puple martin house. I'm looking for advice.

What is the minimum fps that would be good?

are you killing birds or just giving them a poke in the side to get rid of them, I have a gamo 220 air rifle that has 1000 fps per shot, but it lacks accuracy, if you are getting a single shot air rifle like mine get a fixed barrel. it runs around 70 to 200 for a good but on the low end side air rifle. but if your just poking them get a semi BB pistol, they shoot at around 280 to 400 fps.

Just be careful on how you "keep the numbers down!" :D

Good Luck!
