    There's no need for the political jab.

    I'm a dyed-in-the-wool democrat, and I keep a Benjamin NPS .177 by the back door for dealing with squirrels and starlings.

    I remember my Grandpa doing that same thing, except he used a big barrel in his barn filled half w/water & cottonseed on the top (it floats too) to catch big *** rats...we called them wharf rats, one bit my cousin in the old house when she was 5!! [​IMG] Then he had a big 'ol kingsnake move in and we had no more rats! [​IMG]

    Sorry I was replying to GreyFox post #22....duh!
