With a 2 liter plastic bottle on the end of the barrel as a suppressor. Must have been a really clear bottle to have been able to aim through it!

I've shot hundreds of official slow fire 50 foot NRA paper targets. With a nice chianti and fava beans they make a really nice dinner.

I shot a rat that was about the size of a grey squirrel in my kitchen when I was in college.

A pissed off groundhog and a few beavers is the biggest critters Ive killed with a .22lr. About 30 yrs ago when I was a teenager my sister who is 15yrs older than me shot and killed a doe in the yard with a .22 revolver. She shot her from the kitchen window. She has always been a good shot.

A really big rooster, but he was carrying a knife, so it was justified.

my granny would have taken the knife away from him and chopped his head off!

then served him fried with mash potatoes and gravy, with cornbread.

The biggest was a rabbit.

I've taken some pot shots at coyotes with a .22 but those critters seem to scatter the second you level a rifle at them. Probably why my brother-in-law hunts them with a scoped rifle. (.223)
