When you are shooting squirrels with a 22 rifle you got to be dead on. Those little varmints are small and they hop around a lot so you got to hit them in either the head or the thoracic cavity. It doesn't do any good to shoot them in the ass because they'll crawl and find a hole to hide in and you won't be able to get them out. I use those little CB shorts and they don't pack a lot of punch so when I shoot them I got to kill them first time. You got to kill them straight out. - Art

A belt-fed 50 cal machine gun on a turret would stop the hand shaking Barn, and you could even use tracer rounds every 10th round or so to make sure you hit that squirrel just where you want to.
