3)100 yards with a 22?... I don't know how'd you "know" that 5 out of 5 of those shots hit, particularly since one would assume that the animal was not holding still after a single hit. 5 shots, off-hand, at 100 yards, with a 22, hitting a target the size of a skunk would be... remarkable.
I'm with brian on this one. I have shot a possum in the top of the head three times at point blank range with a 22, only to have it waddle off into the brush to die. 22s will kill anything, just dont count on it happening right away.
