    It is spring again, and there are lots of squirrels at the bird feeder. I just picked up a 22 revolver. Somewhere in the past I was told it was not safe to shoot bird shot thru a revolver. Any body know???:

    Can't imagine it would be good for the rifling on the barrel.
     

  3. I watched my grandpa shoot bird shoot thru his colt woodsman many times. Those 22 shot shells are a joke though, you'd be better of with an air rifle. I tried the 9mm shot shells for grouse. I've shot grouse with it from less than 20 feet away and they just looked at me funny and flew away.

    Are you trying to kill the squirrels or just pi** 'em off?

    Kill = bullet
    Pi** 'em off = shot shell


    :p !@ :p
