    .22LR or .410. Perfect little set up in it's own case.
    I'll vouch for this one. And the .22 barrel is VERY accurate.
    Our Marlin Papoose and all AR7's I've shot are not.

    I spend a bit of time on tree stands every year and the number of squirrels I have around me on any given day is crazy. Some will almost climb in my lap to see what this thing in the tree is.

    During bow season, it's illegal to have a firearm on you and during muzzle loader season, it's illegal to have any kind of firearm on you that's not a muzzle loader.

    Crossman makes that underlever pneumatic target pistol and they even make stocks for it. I've considered getting one to carry for squirrels on a tree stand when I don't want to scare deer into the next county. Might have to look into that before next Fall.

    Experience is a wonderful thing - It lets you recognize a mistake, when you make it again.

    One of my favorite small game rifles is the Chipmunk...Small, weighs only a few pounds and accurate...

    The Bicycle Rifle pictured is not mine - as you might be able to tell by the buttstock, the builder was an excellent machinist, a skill I don't have.

    I did, however, build a similar example in .22 Magnum after I saw his - but with a folding buttstock made of heli-arced aluminum tubing.

    The most difficult part was figuring out the buttstock hinge, which in turn effects the grip panel config.

    My Henry AR7 exhibits very similar accuracy as in the GunsAmerica review.
    This is actually five shots, made from 25 yards–shots were made from the shoulder, standing. This is the first five shots I made with the gun, but it repeated this performance over and over again.

    My AR-7 (Charter arms) shot really lousy with the OEM barrel, with an after market barrel it improved to mediocre. My S&W 22 kit gun is the only Smith I've ever been around that doesn't drive tacks. What does work wonderful for me is an adapter I got from Sportsmans Guide that lets me shoot .32 ACP in my .30-06. 1" groups at 25 yards. Quiet as an air rifle.

    Semi auto pistol: Ruger MK II, III
    Revolver: S&W Model 17
    Rifle: Seems a bit cumbersome to be packing a rifle around while deer hunting, so I’d defer to the pistol and make it a bit more challenging.

    The Henry AR7 gets very good reviews.If you go to a handgun you might consider a Ruger 22/45 light-weight version for weight saving.

    Here in Ohio we can't have a second firearm while deer hunting but I wish we could.
    A friend of mine bought a cheap $ 99 22 bolt action single shot kids first rifle at Walmart small like the chipmunk. He has a year round bait pile going and shoots lots of opossums, starlings, and anything else that he feels needs killin and That little rifle does the job at 20 yards.
    I think it would be plenty accurate enough for squirrels and it only weighs a pound or two.

    Chipmunk Barracuda my older kids learned on was super accurate, in spite of a trigger that weighed more than the gun.

    Is that a NAA Mini in 22lr??? That thing is neat. I carry a standard Mini in my pocket when running to the gas station at night or when I'm weed eating at the lake. At the lake it gets fed CCI ShotShells for snake repellant. Do you have pics of your stock and the attachment point?
