I'm not really allowed to possess guns as I don't have my PAL at all, but my dad has a .22, 9mm, .17 Rim Mag iirc, and we have a Shotgun

.22, 9mm and Shotgun are all fun to shoot

I also have a Pellet gun, but again, technically not mine

I also have a Recurve Bow I got for Xmas a few years or so back that I still have yet to use even

Lots of people hunt coyotes with .22s. My targets are fox, coyote, possums mostly and my .22 will do the job just fine. I appreciate your concern though but if you do research lots of people really do hunt coyote with .22s.

Given the size of some coyotes, using a .22 other than a .22 centerfire (.223, .22-250, etc.) is really pushing it.

I live in the english countryside with farmland around and I hear the farmers shooting late evening time quite regularly. I don't know about restrictions on gun ownership here but I know from some of the farmers that the police check in on them quite regularly to see if they are being stored safely.

My ex always used a .22 for deer.
Only advisable if you are a really good shot, and he was.

Debatable.. if it's in close range and you're a good shot there's nothing wrong with it but that's just my opinion.

That takes it a step too far for me. Can it be done.. yes. But it's illegal (at least in my state) for good reason.

I am a geologist who has worked in places where the wildlife can still kill you (bears, mountain lions). So I own a shotgun. I hope I never have to use it on either of those.

What predators are left in the English countryside that they are shooting?

The only 'predator' would be foxes who attack their animals, so farmers get guns to protect their livestock but they actually spend most of their time shooting for 'fun' i.e pheasants, rabbits etc

Foxes? LOL. No bears or mountain lions at least they can fight back. BTW I think your fox hunting "tradition" is some fkked up barbarity.
