Never barked a squirrel, but when we were younger I saw my brother kill several by aiming his Marlin 39A to barely crease the highest part of a squirrel's back. Cut a tiny slot, and the shock/damage to the critter's spinal cord killed it instantly, with zero meat damage.
I used to love squirrel hunting -- until I shot my first squirrel and had to eat it. For me, it was about tramping in the woods with a gun in hand.
Jim's Rules of Carry: 1. Any gun is better than no gun. 2. A gun that is reliable is better than a gun that is not. 3. A hole in the right place is better than a hole in the wrong place. 4. A bigger hole is a better hole.

no guns = might makes right
