I carried a M 79 in Vietnam and think it would be great for squirrel hunting. Just find the tree that the squirrel ran up and aim it in the general direction. Here are the stats on it. M79 grenade launcher
The M79 grenade launcher is a single-shot, break-open, shoulder-fired weapon. It is breech-loading and fires a 40mm grenade. It has an open, fixed front sight and an open, adjustable rear sight.

Did you REALLY need sites for that Mailman?
Sounds like it would hit the target if you just aimed in the general direction.

Nice choice by the way

Hayzer....for the record..I tore off the sights as soon as I got out in the jungle. They kept getting hung up on the vegitation. I always shot it from the hip anyway. Whenever we were to be picked up out it the bush we would have to get rid of our old ammo except one clip for the ride in the chopper back to base camp. We would pick out a tree in the distance at the LZ ((landing zone) and the guys with the 16's would shoot first and then the 60's. I would be last cause when I shot I'd aim at the base of the tree and blow it out like removing a stump in a pasture with dinamite. No target anymore. That was one of the "Fun Times" over there.

fireman tell Blackie "Welcome Home" from a fellow Grunt. I forgot to mention the yardage of the "stump removal"........200-300 yards thereabouts. Had to use the ol Kentucky elevation and Tennessee windage trick. I could always hit it on at least the third try from the hip. I'd love to be able to shoot one today if it were legal. I guess I could re-enlist. Do you think they would take me after 35 years?

Will do Mailman, and welcome home to you too!!! Blackie was Army, 1st Cav...shot in the elbow, came out his hand. He was my Cap't when I first came on duty at the Fire Dept. He spent a little time in some tunnels over there too. He made it easy to go into structure fires when I was a rookie, nuttin bothered him, cept for snakes...lol. He was a blast to work with, retired now. Fun to hear his stories!!! Yea, call a recruiter, see how it goes!!!!
