I think that won't cover the full frame... of my head
With an appropriate "beanie equivalency factor" (BEF) you should be fine. The same may be accomplished with a duct tape wrap over the foil and a top-spray of WD-40.

Soggy bacon. I'll use soggy bacon for this one.
Sounds like a waste of good bacon to me.

I like how the guy in the pickup ran.
I would.

You would too, huh?

Immigrant driver possibly, ever watch them you-tube videos from russia!
Yep, I've seen more than my allotment of them.

Since the advent of cheap and ultra small video recording setups it seems that everyone is bent on documenting 100% of their every move. And of course since the disintegration of the USSR it seems that that region has slipped into total anarchy. I bet most everyone there uses them as a form of insurance.

Too bad it`s discontinued, shot like a 22 short edit: not a pellet rifle...
That's OK. There are plenty of very good air rifles available these days, with muzzle velocities and accuracy to match any .22 rifle.

And they are not toys.

This guy works on a Midwestern farm and uses air rifles to control pests.


There are actually lots of farmers who use air rifles to control pests. Pretty much all of them also give detailed information about their gear and setups.

I have made the decision to start hunting squirrels. I spend a lot of money feeding them (In the guise of feeding the birds) over the winter and they have repaid me by eating all the crocuses in the back yard, On top of they they nip the flowers off of my tulips when they bloom. Later in the spring and summer they continue their assault on other flowers too. Last year they left a debris field in my Impatiens that cannot even be described in polite company. I actually have had to make cages for my tulips so I can enjoy them for more than a day.

I'm sorry Otis, but your northern relatives do this to me every year and I have reached my limit. I even started hanging squirrel logs on trees for them to eat but they continue to repay kindness with vandalism of the most foul kind.

So does anybody know a good brand of pellet rifle?
You should contact the farmer in Iowa.

Recipes for squirrel would be nice too. Especially if they include bacon.
Bacon makes everything better.

That's going to be tough on any who depend on squirrel brains for a sizeable portion of their diet.

And what does he do?

He makes a blind right u-turn, and runs his tandems right over the hood of a pickup.

Nice, huh?
Almost as nice as this one...



But yours was just down the street from where I live!

My grandpa was a big time squirrel hunter, in fact that's where he left this earth, out in the woods hunting Mr Bushy Tail.
After cooking up a mess of them he would take a spoon and crack open the skulls, and eat the brains.
Nearly 60 years ago, probably safe to eat back then.
