RDa and the rat
I put the butter on the floor in the kitchen with the open doorway behind it. Sat in the living room with a good line of sight. Put the rifle on the table between me and the butter.
After waiting patiently for a while I saw the gent run across the doorway. I KNEW he'd soon be checking out the butter so I picked up the rifle and got a comfortable bead on that area with my elbows propped on the table.
That way I didn't have to move after he hove into view.
Single-shot Remington .22 of my youth.
Today I went and bought some pellet rounds.
An easy shot.
I have to shovel all the nasty, torn-down insulation out of that room before I'll know for sure I didn't get him.
