I shot a squirrel with a .22 short in my front yard, one day, maybe 15-18 yds or so away, not far anyway. He was in a big white oak and froze when he saw me. I shot for the head, and he never flinched, so I shot again, for between the shoulder blades...he still never flinched. I sat there and watched him for about 20 seconds, then walked over to the tree with the intention of getting closer and shooting him again. Finally, as I got to the base of the tree, he fell at my feet...hole in the noggin and a hole between the shoulder blades...just took him awhile to let go of the tree, I guess!

The Destroyer EX is a 7.9 gr pellet, too.

I use a walmart special crossman F4 that ran about 80 bucks with a no name crappy scope. It works really well out to about 40 yards. I was surprised, I just bought it because it's one of those you can leave cocked. It's not quite as accurate as it was new but I've put two or three hundred pellets through it and never cleaned it or oiled it or anything.

It still shoots about a half dollar at 40 yards with crossman hunting pellets. 7.4 gr and .177
