I have the Ruger American in .17HMR. Thinking about getting a 10/22 as well just to have a .22 on hand. Is there any comparison between the two as far as ergonomics?

Well, my RAR is in .22-250, but, it's a bolt action and the 10/22 is a semiauto, the mag releases are not in the same place, and they don't feel similar in my hands. The 10/22 comes in so many configurations that hardly anything else can be said generally.

BTW, unless you intend to fade away from RT like smoke, you could do the introduction thing. Could keep me from preaching to the choir, stuff like that. ;)

Hey Drew ,
I moved your introduction over to our introduction subforum.

I love the .17 HMR. Although I currently don't own one. I used have a Savage with a Nikon scope on it. As far as I'm concerned that was the Greatest. Squirrel. Gun. Ever.

A Nixon scope, hey? There must be a non-stupid joke to be had there - but I can't think of one.

All I know about squirrel hunting with the 17HMR is make sure you shoot them in the head. The round will remove major amounts of stew meat if you hit the shoulders or hind quarters.:D:(

Fun caliber but 22LR is more appropriate for the fillin' the fryin' pan.:Cooltu:

When I took grays, Ma used only the hind quarters and a little ways up the back. That shoulder shot would be irrelevant. She didn't stew squirrels unless there were only one, or two small ones.

What species of squirrel is that?

Its an Eastern Fox squirrel, quite common in Michigan, we also have Reds, Grays, and Black squirrels. As well as Southern Flying squirrels.
