Model 52B Sporter with Weaver 2 - 7 scope. Wonderfully accurate and totally reliable.

I use my CZ-452 in .22 LR for Squirrels here in Kentucky, having a Weaver 3-9 X 40 M/M scope mounted on it. I wish I could use my Ruger 77/ .22 Hornet or Winchester Model 43 .25-20, with reduced loads, for Squirrels as I used in Indiana. Kentucky prohibits the use of "Centerfire" cartridges for Squirrels. One can only use Rimfire rifles or pistols or shotguns here. Can't figure out why Kentucky has this rule.

Squirrel rifles are my main addiction, sometimes kinda depends on the hunting for me which one gets packed around. Early season i mostly carry around whichever .22 strikes my fancy at the moment, usually loaded with some sort of Subsonic HP's...some of the more used:


some of the most carried in early season; a CZ452style with 3x9EFR, and a Cz452American with 3x9 Compact which has a Leupold Dot Reticle:



Late season, when leaves drop & long shots become more common, its one of the 17Mach2's...

Kimber 17M2 Hunter with Burris 3x9AO Compact:


Classic Varmint 17M2...weaver V16 has been pulled, and it now wears a Sightron SII 4-12xAO.


One of the places we hunt has had a lot of feral hog activity over the last few years, when we start the deer feeders they tend to hang around & i switch to .22mag, just in case we run into pigs; we usually shoot several hogs a year while squirrel hunting so during that time i try to hunt with a .22WMR and usually shoot Rem 40gr PSP's or CCI gamepoints, which are not too rough on squirrels.
T-bolt .22mag, 4x12 Elite on top:


Anschutz 1516, 2.5-8x Leupold

Probably easiest to say the one that is in my hand-but I have several.

CZ452 American w/Leupold 3-9AO



Remington Model 33P NRA



And, my most favorite--a Remington 513S with a Kohlmorgen scope in Stith mounts.

PCP airguns okay? I live in a rural area but it is not remote enough to use a .22lr

Falcon FN8 in .22



Daystate Regal XL in .22

You hunt Tubbys Shirley??? I thought you loved and fed them.

CZ UL 22 is usually for tree rats but I won't turn down a fox or 3.
Its not old, just a color variation of the black which is a variation of the red.

Bushy tail rifle

Plain and simple, Stevens Favorite 22LR low velocity, iron sights. Very accurate, very quiet. Sounds more like an air rifle.

Any have or used a CZ Varmint Evo or Savage BSEV for squirrel hunting? Curious on how you like the barracuda stock. It feels aweful good to me but I haven't tried carrying it around on my back for half the day. I would have to add some swivel studs but I don't think that wood be a probablem.
