Sounds about right I mean I would prefer my deer gun to be a howitzer but it's what ever you think will take your game down.

This seams like a joke. But I will play along in case it isn't. Lets put it this way. Depending on ware you live you might go to jail for using a .50 BMG for that.

.22 is obviously better for squirrel, the most taken game in the US -- a coupla TENS of millions per year. .50 is better for chipmunk, the evil bastards...

Tickle for President. That's funny right there.

I generally use a punt gun for squirrel. I don't like to miss.
