    It was 71F at 6am and 74% hunidity with heavy overcast. Like breathing water.....ask me if I'm going to the gun club. Yes, about mid September to first of Oct before I go back shooting

    I wonder how I survived this kind of weather as a kid and no a/c???

    Day-um...

    Out of curiosity -- what ammo did you use for those respective kills? :dunno:

    Reminton subsonic on the squirrel, i could seriously have had a cup of coffee while waiting for the bullet to get there i think but they are super accurate from the gun and CCI velocitors on the coyote, not quite as accurate as the subsonics but they hit hard. Honorable mention goes to the federal american eagle 38gr HPs. My gun loves em and they hit much harder than the paper ballistics claim (plus they are cheap!). I would take either of the same shots with those as well.

    Heck ALL of my .22s are total fun to shoot.

    . Ruger 10/22
    . Ruger Mark II
    .Heritage Cowboy single action 6-shooter .22/.22mag
    .Chiappa .22 1911

    It's like I'm always sayin'....you don't have to have a big gun to have big fun! And with the cost of center fire ammo these days it is good to have an occasional .22 day at the range.

    lately I've been jonesing for the Henry Golden Boy and the S&W M15-22. also one of the good quality double action revolvers. All would be fun in their own right.

    My Stag Model 3 with CMMG .22LR bolt conversion and Aimpoint Comp M2 is a blast. Haven't loaded up the .223 bolt since I picked up the conversion for $160.
