In England, they're limited to 12 FPE.

They can get what they call "FAC" airguns but I believe they're treated as "firearms" and require licensing, as always one should use some common sense in what they use any projectile flinging item on. But as ever Common Sense isn't all that common. My 40 plus FPE Avenger and Huntsman very humanely dispatch Squirrels with head shots and nothing bigger than a Rabbit would be considered by me. But that's just me.

Yes, that's true. IIRC, the "F" in FAC signifies firearm. I should have said "generally" limited to 12 FPE. Regardless, some of the English guys sure do make up for lower FPE with accuracy.

I'm glad that we in the US can legally (for now) enjoy higher powered airguns and fit them with silencers as they do in the UK.

Yes, my DonnyFl makes both my Avenger .22 and Huntsman .25 very back yard friendly, unless they see me shooting they generally don't realize what I'm doing.
