One way to tell that the shooter in whose house you are staying is serious about it.
When they have a ballistic table on the side of the stock. With both elevation and wind-age for two very different loads. Of .22LR! One standard load and one is CCI Quiet. That right there is a Gopher Gitter. That whole "aim small miss small" thing takes on a whole new meaning when you are trying to shoot Gophers. Smaller than Prairie Dogs but not quite as skittish. You can usually get within 50-100 yards of them but have to be accurate doing it. I managed to bag 6 on the folks place with my 10/22 while we were up there. Went with a family friend out to a ranch on the other side of the valley and in the course of an hour shot another 50 or so. That field was unusable for livestock and horses because there were so many gopher holes in the pasture.
