I don't have a picture of them near by, but years back I bought my younger brothers CZ manufactured pellet guns.

They are rather low FPS, but they are quite accurate, great triggers, and nice wood.

No longer made though, unfortunately. Maybe the sell different types.

Squirrels just tore my garden up this summer. I want to be ready for them next year. The garden is 20 - 30 feet from the house. How many FPS do I need for a clean kill, what caliber, open sights or scope, and is it possible to get this varmint gun for less than 200.00?

I'd say anything over about 500 is adequate for squirrels if you hit them well.

is there that much recoil that a pad is needed?

Recoil

No, with the Pre-charged pneumatic, there is no recoil. The pad came on the
stock, probably so it looks more like a real powder burner.

How well does that tasco work for you?
I was thinking of buying one, but they are so cheap I'm worried it'll end up being crap.

Question about Precharged Pneumatic

Can the PCP rifles and handguns be stored with the bottles under pressure? I need to take care of some squirrels and have thought about stepping up the arms race at my house. I've been looking at the BSA Ultra in .22 and wondered about storage. If I have to keep the tank empty and fill it before use the squirrels will have moved on by the time I get the gun out.

Also, an opinions about BSA in general or the Ultra specifically? They are a bit pricey, but seem well built.

For sporadic use you're better off with a multi-pump or a break-open with gas-ram swap. PCPs aren't supposed to be stored with a full tank.

Not true:

According to that, you SHOULD keep it full.

Tasco

Sorry, Its not a Tasco....It's a Bushnell "Trophy". I like it because the red dot has 2 sizes as well as crosshair and variable brightness. IIRC, it was around $100.
Less expensive Red Dot sites have a larger Dot which hides the target.


PS I keep all my PCPs full, this keeps the seals from drying out and shrinking. On the CO2 guns, the cartridges have a lubricant in them to keep the seals healthy, as long as you get crossman CO2 cartridges.

Did you stipple that grip yourself or was the stock that way when you got it?

Looks very nice.

Stiple

The stock was a DIY by Jim Maccari. I finnished it and did the stipling with a dremmel tool. There is also some inlay on the bottom and a knee brace that hangs down below the forend.

Trapping

The older ones, I'm guessing I've got the parents, aunts, uncles, and a grandfather or two left. Those that are left are smart enough to move to the side of the trap, reach in and grab the peanut butter which sets the trap off. I usually see one or two each day as they move out of our house. They don't all leave at once otherwise I'd wait and hammer up some steel plate in the spot they've opened up. I've got a Baikal IZH-46M target pistol which I've used to remove one, but the pistol doesn't have enough power for a single shot kill. I had to chase down the squirrel until it stopped moving enough to put another round into its head.

So I'm thinking a .22 pellet gun of some type. Suggestions? If my neighborhood was a little more rural I probably would just follow them outside until they get into a tree and use an old .410 single shot shotgun I've got.
An old indian trick with traps, assuming you're using rat traps, is to put three traps together in a "T" form, triggers together, and use pecans as bait. Make a small slit in the pecan, crack it slightly, and shove the metal trigger in the slit firmly attaching the nut to the triggers. You'll get them that way.....if not put four traps in a square with triggers on the inside.
