Hey guys! Well I've narrowed down my future squirrel gun to the Ruger American Rimfire in .22 Long Rifle caliber. However, I am aware that this rifle comes in to varieties, one with an 18" barrel dubbed "compact", and one with a longer 22" barrel. So now I have to pick which one! I'm having alot of issues with this. The gun will be used as a dedicated squirrel hunting rifle and will be fitted with a Bushnell Sportview adjustable scope. Both these barrel lengths are offered in a threaded version which is of 0 use to me personally. So if you were in my shoes and wanted a squirrel hunting rifle, which barrel length would you get in .22 LR and why? Thanks!
