Rubbish dump Ratting – They’re everywhere!

We’re hunting rats with airguns. And before that we’re testing which pellet has the most penetrative power – a .177, a .20 or a .22 – on a copy of rude bestseller ’50 Shades of Gray’. It’s Pellet Power & Performance episode 4. Roy Lupton, Mark Gilchrist and Andy Crow are armed with Webleys in different calibres. Whatever page their pellet lands on, they have to read it out. This all takes place near a dump in Norwich which is crawling with rats. They join up with the KPS guys for a big night out. It’s a 250+ rat night, with night vision and thermal imaging to help the airgunners. BTW – sorry to say we have now given away the 50 Shades of Grey book!
