Everything about Small Game Hunting...
I have my good old Remington 572 Fieldmaster .22 pump, my first rifle, had it since I was 12. It shoots Longs, shorts, or even long rifles.
My grandson uses a .410, but wants to try his .22 this year, he's pretty good with it.
This may not be squirrell related but I smoke a ground hog with the 204 yesterday. Damm that felt good.
If guns kill people then pencils mis spell words..

H&R 20ga. Ultra Slug Gun
CVA Optima Pro 45cal.
I have two methods. I have a Taurus Tracker 17SS6 .17 HMR revolver and a Traditions .32 Deerhunter ball and patch. The revolver sports a BSA matte silver 2 X 20 scope and the Muzzleloader sports a Simmons blackpowder scope and there's nothing more fun than taking tree rats with a revolver or a muzzleloader.
I have a .22 Marlin 781 tube feed bolt action that my dad bought me 30 years ago, but, that childs play to me today, turn it up and break out the revolver and that's fun right there. If you use the . 17HMR, I suggest using only CCI FMJ though, clean kill and less meat damage than a .22
As for the muzzleloader, the .330 balls leave nice clean holes, no mess, no guess.
This is my actual rifle with the scope mounted:
Here is the new picture of my actual revolver:

little over powered dont you think. Im surprised theres a squirrel left to mount. I usually spot and stalk with my 12 gauge. Want to start using a 22 though. seems pretty fun

use my 20 gauge single shot. loaded with some 6-9 shot depends on whats on sale lol. most of the time no real problem with overkill, maybe one tree rat a year that i put too many pellets into it that make it unusable. use to use my 12 ga for years.... bigger pellets are easier to pull out. HAHA

I take em any way I can get em. Bow, .22, pellet gun, blowgun, throwing rocks. Tree rats is all they are. haha
