    This is the best I did with my friends Charger at 50 feet with a Swift X4 scope. I hung this target in his garage so every time he parks the car in it he would see my target. I held that record for six weeks he did a little better after looking at my target for six weeks. At 100 yards we could put 7 out of 10 in a 3” circle by aiming about 3 inches high all ten rounds would be on the 9” round paper plate.

    So would you recomend it for squirl hunting also how was the feel of the pistol, meaning how hard was it to shoot standing. Also is that a fixed power scope and what kind of ammo where you useing?

    You would do better with a rifle for squirrls. I think this pistol was designed for bench shooters I did not like it free standing.
    The scope was a fixed four power and we use Federal Champion lead target rounds

    did'nt care for it it was a bench only gun cant be used comftorably as a true pistol but it keeps them under a red dot at 25 and 50 yds.Put a rifle scope on it and it will shoot tight groups with one but real clumsy to do a pistol scope would result in good groups. but all said and done i traded it off.
