Honestly, I only have two that I feel are "essential":

1. Pop's old New Haven 251c semi auto carbine (My "do-all" .22)

2. Remington 572 Pump (Finest squirrel gun I own)

Honorable mention: ...

Since I usually don't start hunting until it gets cold, I wait and clean mine at home. They keep pretty good, especially when head-shot. It also depends on where I'm hunting. If I walk out the back...

Mini-mag hp's have done good for me for many years. I've used lots of others too, like Federal, Remington, and Winchester but keep going back to CCI. Expansion is good without too much meat damage. I...

Phil, I'm glad you've gotten good service from the Gamepoints. I was disappointed by their performance on possums, as they often required a follow-up shot. They do a good job on squirrels and smaller...

I have some, and have used them in my Henry against possums and other nocturnal marauders around the farm. Not really pleased with them, to be honest. As you said they have to hit a bone to expand....

My go-to meat gun is my '06, in a Remington 700. Got a Williams peep on the rear, factory front. Anything that walks in front of it out to 175-200 yards is in trouble. Shoot 180grn RNSP bullets, and...

Let me see what I can do tonight when I get home. I admit my photography skills aren't very good, but I'll try. Thanks both of you guys for the compliments!

Well, I'll be danged if I didn't put the Weaver on last night. Just finished sighting it in a little bit ago. Mini mags group 5 shots in a dime at 40 yards, which is plenty good enough for squirrel...

Now Phil I wouldn't go that far! I've always admitted that shot was purely accidental. I could regularly hit a 24" plate at 300, and a 36" at 500. Those are pretty big targets, especially with an 8x...

Thanks! It seems like a nice little rifle to hunt with. I am leaning towards a Williams peep rear, but the Weaver is nice, too. Might try it on and see how I like it, got a set of Weaver rings I...

Photos as promised. Sorry about the quality. The target was shot at 30 yards, rested on my picnic table. Open sights. I'm debating adding sling swivels also. Just can't make myself drill a hole in...

It was something Phil. That big soft lead bullet sure smacked him good. I've since sold the rifle, but recoil wasn't bad. 3.5" 10 gauge or 300 win mag kicks harder. The rifle weighed 16 pounds before...

Brought home a Fieldmaster

Temptation got the better of me, and I swapped off one of my old snubnose Smiths for a very nice 572 Fieldmaster, 150th anniversary edition. I've only got to shoot it a few times, but so far I'm...

Longest: a mangy coyote at 571 (laser ranged) yards, with a Shiloh Sharps 50-140, Wm. Malcolm 8x scope, 550grn paper patched hand load, and a helluva lot of luck! That shot was pure accident, but it...

Friend of mine has a yellow cur too. He's a fine dog, and the reason I still own my Browning SA-22. No better dog-running gun was ever made, imho.

Check E-bay for a good K-2.5 or K-4 Weaver, or a little Bushnell 4x32 Sportview. Any one of those are great scopes for a vintage .22 rifle, and can usually be had around the $50 mark. Personally, I...
