    If you want the meat a 12 gauge seems a bit strong unless you like chewing pellets. 22 or pellet through the head and bar b q.

    I generally grab it by the tail and smash it off a rock, I know it sounds bad but it works to dispatch quickly,

    If you have to use a shotgun get a 410 otherwise a 22 is all ya need for Squirrel and try to head shoot them with the first shot. But if ya have a bad hit and we all have at some time or another, any of the above methods mentioned will work. And you can carry a manual operated revolver for hunting. There is some small 22 revolvers made by different gun companies that are a good choice for dispatching a wounded animal. I would use a 22 short hp round to the head for that task.
