If you want a rifle that will do it all without changing anything, a Savage 24 is what you’re looking for. .22lr on top and .20ga on the bottom with a box of .22 and some birdshot, buck shot and a slug or two there is not much you can’t accomplish. Assuming your going to consume Mr. squirrel, your going to want a head shot, and rifles are going to be #1 in that area. Take a look at the difference in sights, most pistol sights are not made for precision shot placement. Take both to the range and see what you can do with them. If you can make a 25yd head shot every time with your pistol and not your rifle, a pistol would be the best choice.
