Through the years I've used everything from rock to a 12 gauge shotgun to get a coon out of a tree. A few years back me and a few hunting buddies had the idea we were all gonna get pistols to coon hunt with. Most got the Ruger auto's and I went with the Browning Silhouette simi auto with the longer barrel and a red dot scope. That thing shot extremely well, (when you could hold it steady). But be advised, if you don't have some sort of rest to lean on to steady your shot, then I recommend taking a lot of ammo with you, lol. That fad only lasted about one year and we all went back to our rifles. I have a Rossi RS22 simi auto, with a 10 shot clip and a 4 power scope on it now. It's short, light weight and extremely accurate. It's just a whole lot easier to deal with and you don't spend near as much on ammo. There's many small rifles on the market but I settled on this one because of price and durability. It's a little over $100 and well worth it. You don't have to worry about banging it around at that price. Pistols are fun but I like to get in there, dispatch the coon and get out and with a pistol, it's not likely that will happen, JMO.
