    I cannot believe it. I have another squirrel in my furnace today!

    I'll try the live trap first. If that doesn't work, I'll buy a box of .357 shotshells.

    Thanks for the laughs. Sounds like you have a viable need for a supressed .22 pistol. :evil:

    LOL Great story.

    I just read in the news today where a gentleman had captured a mouse in the house. Since he was burning leaves, he decided to use that as a means of dispatching said mouse.
    Only one problem, the mouse caught fire, ran back to the house and burned the guys home to the ground.

    I'll have to see if I can find the story and the link again. Probably on Fox as that's where I usually catch up.

    Just read that the story has now been declared false. You can read about it here: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10790750

    OMG.....

    I couldn't quit laughing long enough to read an entire SENTENCE to the hubster! What a riot!!!

    As the owner of two Irish terriers, I could just see Jackson and Pippin in that situation... although I think if I had shot a gun in their direction, they'd still be running.

    How close are you to St. Louis? I've got a new .300 WinMag I wanna try out.

    Call the BND before you do anything...

    Idea: Humane society, get the biggest, ugliest cat they've got. One that looks like he likes to fight. Stuff him in the furnace, and wait.

    This is when .22LR pistol conversion kits really come into their own.

    I know what your thinking Mr. Squirrel. Did he fire five shots or did he fire six? To tell you the truth in all the excitement I forgot myself. You feelin' lucky punk? Well....are ya?

    O...M...G!

    Never had a squirrel in the house; and I never really thought of them as .45-suitable! Guess not, if you wanted any for dinner....

    Delightful story. And now another one? Are you burning peanut oil in that thing?

    We get birds in our furnace from time to time, but they're no fun. They just die and stop the little draft-inducer fan from running, which in turn keeps the furnace from coming on. Definitely time to look into a screen for the chimney!

    Lemme get this straight...you fired the 45 inside your house because of a squirrel?? How many walls were penetrated and where did the bullet end up? Wow...you must be a contractor. I read the squirrel was "upstairs" Correct me if I'm wrong..

    second that last comment. either he's a contractor, or he has a VERY forgiving wife (and probably he's a masochist to boot)

    Great mental images with that story. Just a couple of observations, if you will allow me:
    1) Aim betwen the eyes, they tend to charge when they're wounded.
    and
    2) Releasing small varmints into the neighbor's residence would be considered cruel and unusual punishment, for the varmints.

    Try the Aguila Colibri primer-only .22s next time on your varmints ... whole lot less messy than a .45 (and pretty quiet, too!).

    Squirrel came out of the basement to the first floor. At least that's how I understood it.
