I have a Marlin 22 Mag with a light setup on top of my scope for night coyote hunting. I've also used my AR in the daytime, but normally just use the 22 Mag

I'm borrowing a coworker's Weihrauch HW97k .177 cal pellet rifle. I've managed to sight the scope in and love waiting for unsuspecting squirrels climbing on my house.

I'd like to find a decent .22 air rifle for varmint duty.

I stabbed an opossum with an arrow and broad head once. But I use a crossman bb/pellet gun for birds and my buddy uses a bow with thunderheads for ground animals.

To be honest I don't recall the model number. I bought it used from a dealer up by Pellston. I love the gun. It's super accurate.

I used my father in laws Nylon `66 reminton for years. its an old open sight .22 long. I could drop a ground hog on the run 8 out of ten times. only issue I had was range. the ground hogs my neighbor was traping at 70yrds had lead sticking out of their skulls.
