That's awesome shooting with a handgun!!! Do you mind if I ask if you wear hearing protection when using that outdoors hunting? Reason I ask is that I am going to try to get a few myself this year with a Ruger MKIII Hunter, but am worried about the loudness and hearing damage. I bout a pair of the ear plugs that let "normal" ambient sound in, and have 11DB protection then, but when a sharp loud impulse hits their membrane shuts it down and does 32 DB protection, but even those dampened normal woods noises so much that I couldn't hear crap rustling around.

I try to take my wife with me if I want to hear anything. 30 years of shooting before I ever heard of hearing protection sorta did me in and now the sound of a .22 is nothing at all.

LSavant. Where are you hunting. Those don't look like what we know as fox squirrels here in NC.

I dont wear hearing when hunting with a .22 revolver, it does not seem to affect me like when shooting from a bench in the open. My theory is that the woods absorb most of the sound.
