Kamikaze Taliban Squirrels

Brian and I went shooting today with his dad in Columbia, Illinois. Both Brian and his dad bought deer rifles recently and they needed to sight them in. We went to his dad's step-nephew's friend's house where he has quite a bit of land and plenty of room to shoot safely. It was way out in the country and there were tons of rolling wheat fields and pretty horses and cows. I am kicking myself for not bringing my camera! The guy was really nice and he had targets already set up and we were shooting into the side of a hill so I felt safe that we weren't going to hit anyone. Brian brought along his .22 and I shot that because it isn't very loud and it doesn't kick at all. I shot a few rounds from an ak-47 but it is too loud and kicks too hard. Not to mention I can't hit the target with it.

I didn't do too bad with the .22 rifle. It is used mainly to hunt small game like squirrels and rabbits. So should any errant squirrels or rabbits bent on world domination come near me I could take their head off (or at least put a small hole in it) at 30 yards.
