What format do you prefer for your small game gun: bolt, semi-auto, lever, pump, single shot ?

For me:
1. Bolt action
2. Single Shot

I like bolt or single shot. I tend.to take more time to make that 1st shot count. I would use a marlin 39 if I could find one i could afford. Never had the opportunity to use a pump. With shotguns same principle. I prefer single shots or doubles.

My absolute favorite is my old Marlin M39A. It has a Williams aperture sight and small flat faced gold bead front. It's slim, light, accurate and handles perfectly.

How old are you since you’re using open sights?

59... I don't need glasses yet. Feel fortunate for that. I'm still able to kill them with my S&W K22 or Ruger MK III Hunter open sights handguns.

I grew up shooting rabbits and squirrels with my great grandfathers octagon barreled Rem mod 12. It had cool sights, probably something from Marbles, a rear tang mounted aperture sight and the front could flip from a bead to a bead in a ring. Loved hunting with that rifle. Now days I mostly hunt small game with a .32 muzzleloader.

I switch between several bolt, semi auto and lever action .22's and .22 mags. depending on what, where and how I'll be hunting. I like them all and can't really say I have a favorite.

My favorite small game rifle is my Marlin 1894 CL in 25-20 WCF. The bullet is bigger and heavier than a 22 so it really knocks those squirrels over well. Velocity is moderate so you don't get any meat damage. It has a fixed power Weaver K2.5.
My heavy barreled CZ 452 in 22 LR is my other favorite. It's incredibly accurate.

My bolt action is a Ruger 77/22 LR. The barrel is smooth, no open sights. It loves Remington Vipers &/or Yellow Jackets. With those rounds it will shoot very flat out to 85 yards.

The single shot is a Stevens Favorite, circa 1917. This gun literally looks fresh out of the box. It is a joy to behold for its age.

Hunted swamp rabbits with beagles as a kid. This was my rabbit rig. My grip was more comfortable than the TC grip.

When the shooting is hot and heavy (well populated gopher patch) I will go to my 10/22 with open sights. Extended range I like my savages, 17 HMR AND 22 mag.

My favorite lever gun. This one with a VX-2 3-9x40 with CDS set up for 38 gr. Federal Game Shok, 50 yd zero. This gun has a trigger stop and near match grade trigger. Fajan stock and my attempt at checkering as a youngster. Rosewood grip cap.

And, then there's my 29" barreled .22LR CZ 2500 with Leupold Compact 3-9x33 A/O EFR with Timney trigger.

Long barrel is really quiet without can. Not as accurate as the Cooper, but close.

Ugly wood. Looks better painted.

1953 birthday gift from Mom and Dad.
The small game has been about everything from barn flies on the barn door to whitetail buck. Along with other game has been grasshoppers in the field, frogs, starlings, pigeons, partridges, squirrels, chipmunks, snowshoe rabbits, fox, tame rabbits, raccoons, fisher, cats, cows (beefers), bats, woodchucks, bees (in the nest), chickens, snakes, weasel, crows, chicken hawke, owl, barn swallows, trout, muskrats, beaver, a goat. Probably other species that I don't remember. My parents were not aware of everything this farm boy shot. For about two years I was shooting about a brick per month. Most of the above were before I turned 16.

i have a Ruger 77-22 S.S. with that weird black plastic stock,that makes it look like a toy rifle. but i like to use this rifle it doesn`t rust easy and i have 3 rotary 10-shot clips for it so it loads and unloads very easy.the other reason is i don`t want to wreck my Marlin 39A`s those are just used with tender lovin care.

Not much here on the Winchester 9422. I have never owned or even handled a Marlin 39.

How do the two compare?

I've shown this one before, but my favorite woods walking, small game gun is a family heirloom. Marlin '94 25-20 shooting cast 89 gr plain based NOE 260283 at just under 1300 fps using 9.2 gr 4198. Williams 5D rear, fiber optic front sights aid these old eyes in hitting what I'm aiming at.

squirrels are a bit harder to hit so I usually end up with the Rem 582 I bought as a teenager 42 years ago. It still carries a Herters 4x rimfire scope, 1" dia. and still outshoots me.

I hear they taste terrible, is this true?

Any cooking method that makes them taste better?

squirrels are a bit harder to hit so I usually end up with the Rem 582 I bought as a teenager 42 years ago. It still carries a Herters 4x rimfire scope, 1" dia. and still outshoots me.


Great rifle! Super cool picture!!

Sooner or later our heritage of hunting is going to be a rich mans sport and the words "Outfitter" and "Hunt Industry" will be synonymous with cancer and A.I.D.S. among blue collar hunters like me and my family! (A.L. Williams - 2010)

For tree squirrels, the 17HM2 in a bolt gun from Anschutz, Marlin, Remington, or Savage.
