Best choice squirrel gun

Reply
 
Every year my deer hunting club has a squirrel rodeo on opening day of squirrel season. It's the only day of the year I squirrel hunt. Every year I am unsure of what gun to use. I have a 12 guage , a 20 guage and a .22 LR with a scope. Which do you prefer?

Looks like it the 20 gauge I hate shooting up with a .22 also.

Beast, 22 mag. makes a prefect hole through the head with the TMJ. Works well on hogs also.
