I have been looking for a powerfull .22 air rifle. Its main purpose would be squirl hunting. I'v tried to use a .177 cal airgun with a MV of 625fps. Im shure some of those squirls Iv shot are reading this right now laughing at me! Even though my shots werent always headshots, I still think that SOME of those squirls should have been dropped considering I shot them from less than 20 feet away. Whitch leads me to my question, whats a good .22 airgun that delivers enough power to make a dead squirl at about ten yards or so that wont cost me more than $300 (thats a firm 300 bucks). I cant shoot a firearm in my backyard where I live so rimfire is out of the question.
