When I'm just going to wander around my farm, particularly when it's not hunting season, I usually carry one for varmint hunting. This could be hogs, raccoons, bobcats, opossums, armadillos, coyotes, or some snakes. The guns are light weight, accurate, low recoil, shoot a small bullet, and can rapid fire as needed. They're truly ideal for my needs.
I manage for quail and most of the varmints listed above can do a lot of damage to nesting birds.
