This morning I had planned on muzzleloading but by 8:30 AM I had changed my mind. The wind was howling and I had a better idea. I went back to the truck, dropped off my muzzleloader and grabbed my .22 Pistol.
By 11:30 I had bagged these 4, all of which were good sized grays. If I hadn't missed so many times, I'd have been done a LOT earlier! Hitting those twitchy little things with a handgun is NOT easy...I have a red dot scope on my pistol which helps a lot, though.
Here's the first 2 that I got along with my S&W 22a:

The 3rd:

Then the total of 4...time to do some skinning!

Good job, and good shooting!

I like hunting with a handgun now and then. I enjoy my rifles too, but some days a handgun fits in just right.

That's some good shooting, and a good day in the woods. Those handgun squirrels taste better too!

Good shooting Rem308. That kind of hunting is fun and makes a nice lunch as well.
