Closed. It's frustrating when people don't follow the forum policies. They're in place for a reason.

Sometimes. Sometimes not. How big is the bird? Most of the time it would probably injure the bird. Even if it flies off it could still be injured and die of those injuries later. Especially if it prevents the bird from finding enough food.
A real hunter tries to insure a quick and clean kill of game every time. Granted it doesn't always work out. Except for a few varmint species any killed animal is used for food either by the hunter, a friend, or donated to organizations that use it to feed the hungry. Most cities have laws against shooting song birds within city limits. If you want to hunt small game then please purchase a .22, do it legally, and make sure anything killed isn't wasted.
I've been young before and understand the urge to shoot things. Especially birds and little animals that move. However all of us grow up and understand it was a stupid thing to do. We can't claim ignorance because we all knew better at the time. We also used a real BB gun that would penetrate a human's arm or a .22. Airsoft isn't for this.
Ask your Dad or a family friend to take you squirrel hunting! Legally!
Best of luck! Some of my best memories revolve around hunting.
Moral of the story? Don't shoot animals with airsoft. That's not their purpose, and it is cruel. If you want to hunt, go hunting. LEGALLY.
