i like 6's in 2 3/4 12 gauge for squirrels.the 20 is a fun gun though
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

i like the 6 shot as well. 7 1/2 seems too small to me unless they are real close.
