    Sorry guys, I didn't proof read my previous post. The grammar structure of my first sentence is rough to say the least.

      i've shot squierrls with a shotgun and i agree at times it is too easy but try hiting a runing red
      if you have a split second to shoot my single 20 does the job. (though i might add that i do like shooting them with a 22. its more fun)

        I hunt rabbits with a shotgun in the timber. As I walk through they flush from brush. I have rarely seen one standing still. They are flying at about 20 mph and you have about 1 second to get off a shot before they are out of sight. It took a lot of practice to get to the point where I could hit them. When I have taken hunters out who are not accustomed to rabbit hunting, they rarely get one. I find that if you can hit a rabbit in the timber with a shotgun, you can hit anything because of the quick shot training you get. Blazing with a .22 would be both dangerous and inhumane in these conditions to say nothing about having to eat bushes at the end of the hunt because you sure won't have rabbits.

          IT really doesnt matter how we hunt its hunting enjoy it while u can.But also rabbit hunting with a shotgun is much better if u use dogs because u could hit one of your dogs with that .22 bullet AND u arent just going to hit a running rabbit with a .22 in less its running across a field and really aim..like febuary 28th was the last dat of rabbit hunting in virginia so i went to tappahanock and i shot at two different rabbits shot at one twice missed him and i had a open shot dont know how is missed just did with a shotgun.then i had one run straight to me and shot three times on him and still missed then i had no more shells in the gun so i was bout to put another shell in and he stoped 2 feet away from me and looked at me i was so mad.but as for squirrel hunting with a .22 shooting up with no cover is good.but if you are shooting on the ground and in cover then a shotgun would be ya best choice
