Wondering what folks prefer in a squirrel rifle? Ive got a ruger 10/22 with scope but find I am much more accurate with my 80 year old single shot, bolt action, .22, with iron sights.

My favorite due to its sentimental value is my grandfather's Browning SA-22 that I inherited when he passed. Its a tack driver and I shot a limit with it again yesterday! It only goes with me when the sun is out! I also have a Savage Mark II that my dad bought for me when I was 11. Equally as accurate, but being a bolt it takes a little longer to get a second shot when needed.

I like my scoped 10/22 it's old 35 years but I know how it shoots. I also use a Ruger MK II target pistol, 10 inch bull, stainless with standard iron sights and a great trigger. Taken everything from rats to cats with them.

Drummer Boy, Cabelas in GB has two of the Weatherby XXII semi autos, I believe for $450 and $750. I have one with the magazine (never cared for a tube fed rifle) with the Weatherby scope on it, very nice and accurate rifle.

I like the 17 HMR lately. I put a Shilen 17 HMR barrel on my Ruger 77/22 mag, use it a lot more now.

I use dads 10/22 or my marlin .22 that I bought when I was 12. The marlin is more accurate.

Henry Arns .22 Lever that I won at a WPVA shoot with a 3-9 40mm scope I won at another WPVA shoot. Meanest squirrel rifle around!!!!

Then again it is fun to go out with my Dad's 1937 Winchester .410 single.

river-chaser, I hear what you're saying but $1000 wouldn't touch the price of a M82 Super America.
