My Grandpa said he liked shorts because the dead squirrel always landed on the ground. Said long rifle would pass through and leave the dead squirrel in the tree..

Now, he said this in '69 or so and probably hadn't hunted for 25 years before that. I've never shot a squirrel out of a tree with anything so really can't add to or take away from what he told me back then.

I do know if they didn't make .22 short I wouldn't be able to shoot the High Standard Model C pistol my dad handed down.
