You need to pass the key to the wacky weed cabinet to your wife.








Just kidding, really!
But I prefer a custom 10/22 with a nice scope.

Well, to each his own, but l had a Nylon 77 (box magazine version of a Nylon 66) one time and l absolutely despised it, and really dislike "red dot" scope sights too. There is no such thing as "the ultimate" squirrel hunting weapon, just the ones that an individual happens to enjoy using more than others.

Buckwheat I'm not a fan but keep looking at them because of the love you show for them. I was in a small gun shop today and they had 2 on consignment one black and one brown. They were both in excellent condition but the owner had duracoated the receivers. He didn't do anything else so not sure if they had been scratched or what but ruined them both. $499 ea. I still don't own one.

Anschutz 1416D. None better in my opinion. Light weight and BR accuracy with the right ammo. Not a better rifle to carry in the woods. Wished I still had mine. I would give up my 39A and my 94/22 to get another one.

I think I would be hard pressed to find a better squirrel rifle than my CZ 455 Varmint.

Had a 66 and a 77, both had the same issue. If you mount a scope or sight on the receiver it will move and you cannot keep it sighted in. With open sights they are great little truck guns. Now, the best squirrel rifle is the little Contender G2 with a great scope; light, short, and extremely accurate (also easy to clean plus you can have any of the small squirrel calibers you want). Isn't it nice that everyone has an opinion?

I didn't even know Eotech made a rimfire sight, so at least I learned something today.

I use a FX Tarantula sport .22 PCP with a six section moderator and a Vortex Diamondback 4-12 AO scope. I use the 18.1 JSB`s, very quiet and very accurate. I average about sixty greys per year.
