They're great small game and predator guns; 12- or 20-ga over a .223 for ceytoos, foxes, etc, and 20ga or .410 over .22 for rabbits and squirrels.If you're presented with a shot at a treed squirrel, a .22 is a bad choice, but on the ground it prevents meat damage; same for rabbits that are running/holding still.Without a doubt they're a compromise gun, but they certainly have their place. If it's the only gun available and you're hunting something while there are restrictions in place, the only answer is to leave all the inappropriate ammo at home.
