I have a bunch of 22’s. Most of the time for hunting I grab my 10-22 with a fixed 4 power scope

I mostly use a .410. Some of my favorite squirrel timbers have a lot of houses close by so it's safer to use the little scatter gun.

Savage 93 BTVS, Heavy Barrel, with a Vortex Diamond Back 4-12x40. Left hand bolt. Love it my son got ti for me for Christmas. Never had a left-hand 22 before.
it is heavy but a tack driver and great to shoot at home.

I have a Remington 550 model 22 with 4X scope, that I bought used when I was I believe a freshman in high school??? Anyways that was my go to squirrel gun for many years. I also bought a Browning Challenger 22 pistol to carry for squirrels while bow hunting. I've shot a lot of squirrels with both those guns.
When they came out with 17HMR I bought a Marlin bull barrel in 17 HMR. I have a variable power Bushnell scope on it. That gun has been what I shot most my squirrel with since I bought it. I have made head shots on squirrels out to 65 yards. Yes I had a range finder and that was not a Guesstimation. The gun is a tack driver and if I ever had a chance I'm pretty sure I could head shoot a squirrel easily at 100 yards. The little 17 cal ballistic tips are not meat freindly if you take body shots.

Mostly My 32 cal TC Seneca. But occasionally I will use my Marlin 39A with a scope or if I want to hunt like I did when I was a kid I pull out my Rem 552 that I bought when I was a kid.
