Anytime you wanna go GTK I am ready. Off most of next week if you wanna catch a hunt. Evenings are good if you have to work.

I don't think the airguns would be legal. I have one of the really nice airguns my dad bought for me and I was going to take it squirrel hunting but I read something that made me think it would not be legal...I forget what and where.

The regs mention .22s and shotguns with shot no larger than ___ being legal. No mention of airguns I think.

Wouldn't be my choice for a squirrel rifle.

:welcome: Welcome Southside John

Depends on what kind of air rifle. My son has a nice "gammo" air rifle.. pretty accurate and plenty powerful

I have one of these... It would kill a squirrel easily.

I don't know about MS but in Texas it's illegal to take a game animal with a pellet gun or air rifle.
