Marlin 25MN (.22WMR)
Rabbit, Squirrel, Armadillo, Raccoon, Coyote, & Opossum.


Any smaller than deer critter is fair game...the precision of the microgroove barrel works wonders with 50-grain Federal GameShoks

Academy sells blackhawk bipods for around 35 bucks. They are pretty nice to way cheaper than a Harris.

Here is my "best" and probably my favorite .22 rifle. It is a Marlin 39A Golden Mountie, 1967 vintage. Even though it is already 45 years old, if given halfway decent care, it will outlast my grandson who is only four months old now. But I also like my Ruger 10/22 a lot.
