You heard wrong I have shot a gazillion squirrels with my marlin
modle 10 single shoot since I was 10 yrs old, Im now 45 yrs old.

To me they are one of the best squirrel guns in the world.

So you keep on shooting them bushy tails with it ok.

And Good Luck

I Shoot .117 caliber pellet guns that go over 1000 fps. Or i take out one of my trusty marlin .22's. I like the .177 cals for speed.

12g 870 with #6; rem um....581 (i don't know and its at home) .22 bolt with iron sights BUT if I had my choice I'd go with a "grown up" .177 rifle. either open or x2 scope.
870 for early season or when i don't feel like sitting still
