I have almost exactly the same setup I purchased over 30 years ago. I am not the shot you are.I hunt squirrel with mine every year. I like the factory fiber optic sights, but without magnification, and given the size of the game, I try to keep most shots at or under 25 yards. Though I have taken squirrel out to 75 yards, I've also missed two or three times before hitting and dropping them at that range. The misses weren't a fault of the gun NEARLY as much as my skill level using open sights.
Since the first time I tried hunting with a pistol about 8 years ago, the only time I ever carry a rifle for ANY game is when I start to feel bad for leaving the rifles at home.
It's NICE having the pistol in a holster and both hands free going through the woods!
It'll be the first thing I grab in a bug out situation!!

I CHEAT! When I'm attempting something over 30 or 40 yards I look for a tree to brace my hand against. But have also found my MKIII is more picky about ammo brand than any gun I've ever seen. It never fails to impress me with Remington Yellow Jackets, or Vipers. But try anything else like any of the CCI's, Winchester, or Aguila, it'll throw those things around so bad it's scary.I have almost exactly the same setup I purchased over 30 years ago.

I have a both a .22 long rifle pistol and revolver and really like them for plinking and such. Not sure how useful they'd be for a survival type scenario. Your thoughts on the matter. Fun plinkers or useful as a survival tool.
I'd have a hard time selling them on that one, since I live on a desert.I should note for Obama and his friends, ALL these guns are at the bottom of a lake following the terrible boating accident.
