Unless you live on a farm without another house within miles, using a .22 to shoot squirrels around your house would be pretty irresponsible.
Unless you live on a farm without another house within miles, using a .22 to shoot squirrels around your house would be pretty irresponsible.Not at all. You just have to know how to use it responsibly. If you're actually in a rural area and you are careful, it's quite safe.
Hmmm. I fixed it again, and made sure these parts were screwed together tighter, so next time I checked, the ring that holds the top in place was still hanging, and the feeder was again on the ground, so clearly the squirrels have already learned right is tight and left is loose, as they were deliberately unscrewing it. I tightened that screw further, and the feeder has stayed in place since, but I have seen a (chubby) squirrel working on it again a couple of times already. I had a conversation with him this morning about not knocking the feeder over, but I'm not sure he understood.
Know what pisses me off, huh? You know what really gets me mad in this life? It's the goddamn periodic table of elements. They've got 109 or so naturally occuring elements. Then they've got 10 or 11 of these non-naturally occuring man-made elements. They give them names like Einsteinium, Californium, and Nobelium. And what I want to know is: If they're man-made... just how the hell can they be elements, huh?
