    Jake great to see you starting the kids early. I am from the midwest were the reds just yell for you to shoot them but i just got back from a trip to the rim and didnt have much luck got a few but thought they would be thicker any tips for the next time (i.e what to look for or just keep walking up and down)

    I had a disappointing hunt -- went out with my Stevens Favorite, made in 1895, but squirrels were on the ground and I couldn't pick them up through the tang sight. Went out the next day with the Gae Bolga, my Kimber M82 and they were all in the trees -- would have been easy shooting with the Stevens. With the Kimber and my Burris 4x scope, it was like cheating.

    What's the story on that break barrel in the first pic? I've never seen a barrel adapter like that

    From a couple of weeks ago before the start of deer season. I should have had four, but I botched two gimme shots.

    Rembrandt, Wow... What a great looking rifle you have there... Great picture too.. I always keep an eye open for any model 52 but just never seem to see any for sale at the LGS. I also keep on the look out for a Winchester model 69, Remington 513 Sporter, Browning T Bolts and old Marlin 39's but the Winchester 52 TOPS the .22 rifle "want it" list for me.

    An acceptable substitute for a Winchester Model 52 is a Kimber M82 which I have, or a Kimber K22. Both are out of production though.

    They sure get finicky on a windy day! When I manage to bag one I like cookin em slow. Our squirrel season extends through the end of January. Nothin like hunting in the snow. Too cold? -- get over it! Dress right and chuff it.

    In Arkansas, squirrel season is from June through February -- so if you like squirrel hunting, you can get all you want here.

    My dog Toby, me and the two squrrels. I use a 1940's Iver Johnson Bycycle Works 16 ga. It was my father in laws, who was a WW2 vet and passed away before I met my wife. I have many modern Shotguns, but this old gun will bust a squrrel with one shot every time. It makes me slow down on my shots.
