Nice shooting, those ground squirrels sure can make a mess around the house. I try to kill every one with in a 100 yards of the house. They also just got me another spot to shoot because they chewed up a buddies trailer wiring.

Nice shooting Rich. I haven't seen many out lately due to the poor weather but give them a little sun and they don't waste any time popping out. How's your Discovery shooting? I haven't seen you use it in awhile. :signs1111cr:

Discovery is doing great..great value for the money...I've been trading off between the Discovery .22 and some other rifles..like my Dominator HPA .22. I get 25 hard shots out of the Discovery.If I think I'll need more shots, i'll take the Dominator as it gets 40 regulated shots.
