    I was stationed at Castle back when it was an Air Force training facility. Back then, it was pretty remote- - - -a squirrel massacre would have barely gotten anybody's attention. I guess the snowflakes have migrated to the boondocks of the San Joaquin valley.

    "Squirrels" in the sandy, mostly treeless areas of central California are burrowing animals- - - -they're pretty much inedible, and people consider them to be pests. I don't even remember if there was a hunting season for them 40-something years ago.

    Not Texas either.

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    Dumb statement of the year on firearms.

    http://sacramento.cbslocal.com/2018/01/11/mayor-shoots-squirrels-from-truck/

    Allen said, “That is the dumbest thing a person could possibly do- shooting live rounds on an airfield.”

    I've had the experience of not shooting dead rounds (duds); the firing pin hits but nothing happens. Trying to shoot duds would be counterproductive to squirrel eradication. Almost as senseless as shooting blanks! :roll2:
    A double action revolver is a semiauto firearm. It fires once for every trigger pull.

    So I guess he don't get no points for hands on grounds management:uhm:
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    This summer, I didn't notice a lot of squirrels. Now that it's winter, though, it's rare to go a day without seeing a dead squirrel on one of the neighborhood streets. I guess they have to cross the streets more to find enough food to sustain them.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    More like the squirrels communicating the locations of the BEST food at the birdfeeders! :roll2:

    I’m sorry, if I was mayor, I would write it into law that I could shoot squirrels on city property. What’s the point in being mayor if you can’t?
