    Had to go with the Charger. I like the ones I have shot although I think its a bit much for an off hand pistol, more of a bench shooter.

    The Charger...you can get a 25 round banana magazine, a scope and a suppressor and really play hell on the squirrels!

    I guess there are so many ways to customize anything built on the 10/22 platform is my main reason.

    I like the looks of this Ruger Single-Action, made for an optic, would seem to be an excellent raccoon/squirrel popper, could be a competitive piece for 22 Silhouette and excellent general plinker.

    I went with the single six, mostly cause the charger is more a SBR without a stock they called a pistol then a real handgun but really both would be great. Charger is more for bench shooting though I mean it comes with a bi-pod... if that's what your into go with the charger by far.

    I'd get a TC Contender. More versatile. You could add other barrels at will. Plus since it lacks an "action", it's shorter overall for it's barrel length. Very accurate.

    I would agree with the Contender and get the match barrel. You can add other barrels later and they out shoot the chipmunks I have shot. My old Contender 10" match barrel still out shoots most 22 rifles at 50 yards and more.

    There was a time I really had a hankering for a Thompson-Center pistol in .223.

    Long barrels are available for the Browning Buckmark too. 7 1/2" is a factory length, close to your 8" desire but longer aftermarket barrels are available.

    The TC Contender would be a good way to go if your goals can be accomplished with a single shot.

    I've got a soft spot for rimfire single action revolvers. I've got a Ruger Single Six already.

    That's what I took my first shot on when I was a lad. The Hunter would just be the frosting on the cake. Lots of it!
