Default Whats Your Favorite Squirrel Gun/Rifle?

What’s your favorite squirrel gun/rifle?
What brand, type, bolt, lever, pump, semi auto?
What caliber do you prefer, 17 HM2, 17 HMR, .22 HMR, .22 LR?
Or do you use a handgun for squirrels, I do.
You may choose more than one, since some people have more than one squirrel rifle/Handgun.



And do you have pictures?

I normally hunt with my 12 ga but when the leaves come off I enjoy sniping them at 50 yard with my Henry lever action 22 LR.

All we have around here a ground squirrels or sage rats, which ever you want to call them. Good practice for your deer or elk rifles though. Mostly I shoot a ruger 77/17 mach 2 at them. I do have a Taurus 17 hmr revolver with a leupold scope on it that is fun as well.
