No rats, but this huge squirrel is mighty tempting.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Isn't a Squirrel a Rat with a busy tail?

Personally, I behoove that squirrel was pesting. That makes him legal to shoot, even in Californica.

If I shoot that squirrel, my kids, my wife, and my neighbor are all gonna be mad at me. They give me a pass on the rats, but the possums, raccoons, skunks and squirrels are on the ban list.   :(

My wife just bought a squirrel house.... hence the "oh, he's cute, he doesn't shoot them, does he?" comment....  ::)

Ground squirrels, crows and starlings are another story here, fortunately....  8)

I still look at that squirrel that's way bigger than the biggest rat I have killed, and get an itchy trigger finger. I can be in backyard holding rifle, and this squirrel and his fat cousins all look at me and thumb their noses.   >:( Keep it up Squirrels, keep it up.

Last night a possum visited feed station number 2. That frosts my chaps. Gonna have to install a hinged shelf on that one too.

I here you on the itchy trigger finger. The last two years I've had to watch a 4x4 blacktail eating apples 25' from my bedroom window at day break. Come gun season he's like a fart in the wind. I wish I had an arrow launching air gun as I can legally take a deer with it during bow season. I have a bad elbow and I can't pull back a bow string anymore. My doctor's note clears me to use a crossbow or an airbow (provided I register as such with the DF&G)
