I've got a "squirrel problem" with my bird feeders - I've been pestering them with a CO2 BB pistol, but need something more accurate and apparently more lethal (the only way you're going to keep them from a food source). Someone loaned me a Beeman R1 in .177 to try, but I can't hit a darn thing with it. They have a nice Leupold scope on it, but it's both slightly tilted and I have a terrible time with eye relief - can't go messing with their scope, but the only way I can get a good sight picture is to hold it off my shoulder. Doing so means accuracy suffers, and since I don't have it jammed into my shoulder, the recoil keeps me from seeing where the pellets are hitting so I can correct. Anywho... Anybody got some suggestions? I'm currently considering the SIG MCX but can't quite pull the trigger. CO2 powered would be nice for no muss, no fuss shots - a break barrel rifle is quite a production just for one shot, and my squirrels are currently so gun shy that It's difficult to crack a window in order to get a shot off. With a spring powered rifle, if you don't get the shot off you can't just let it set 'til next time. I'm torn between: 1. .177 or .22 pellet. 2. The SIG MCX or Winchester MP4 (seems to get good reviews). I've pretty much squirrel-proofed my feeders, but I've got so many of the darn things that I need to thin the herd a bit. Suggestions or experience anyone?
