I chose open sights only because you combined rabbit and squirrel hunting together. I agree with the squirel hunters that a scope is nice to have but for rabbits I need open sights to find my target quickly. Rabbits are usually a lot closer than squirrels also.

:shock: I am shocked. A Marine using a shotgun for squirrels.  :wink:  :roll: I have a confession, my brother uses a shotgun for squirrels some, too.  :roll: It's hard to live down, Marines shooting squirrels with shotguns. I am now going to go stand in my dark basement for much needed recovery time. Maybe when I come back upstairs you fellas will have realized your transgression.  :roll: ;D How will I be able to face my fellow Marines at work? I better call in sick today.

 my marlin shoots real good with open sights, i'd prefer sights to a scope in the early season, but if i got a scope, it would probably be a night and day thing.

Ah, well I usually don't use a scope, has more to do with the guns though. Usually the 20 guage or .22/.410o/u is used. Neither can really do good with scopes for squirrel loads. I like to use the pellet gun though, and always use a scope for precision aiming, in the head 99% of the time.

Well......when it is a shotgun only area.....it's kinda against the law to use a rifle!!! O0 Plus, situation dictates.....if I'm stalking in on squirrels, I like to see just how close I can get w/o spooking them away..........I like to keep my stealth skills as sharp as I can......If I can sneek up on a wary squirrel....who has the advantage of sight, hearing, and holds the high ground.........and get right underneath him...then I see that as an accomplishment and should have no problems sneaking up on some of the "2-Legged" opponents that I may have to face when I get back into the Operating forces.....plus there's no such thing as an overkill.......right? Don't feel bad John......what would you rather have in a CQB situation, a shotgun or rifle?

BTW........The .17 is going to get the majority of the hunting time this year.......if I'm not in a rifle-restricted area.....I'll be using the .17 O0  ;D ;D ;D
