I am thinking about getting a 22lr single shot pistol for fun at the range and maybe squirrels. Are the Chipmonk or Crickett pistols something work looking at for this purpose?

THE CONTENDER IS A SINGLE SHOT AND THEY USE TO MAKE A MATCH BARREL IN 22lr

My youngest daughter had a lil cricket rifle. I hated the dang thing. I had once thought about the handgun version. Glad i didnt get it.

If you could do a semi look at a Ruger charger. I added a green mountain fluted bull barrel to mine. Amazing accurate and a fun gun.

For hunting squirrels, i muchprefer a ruger mk or browning Buckmark to pack and handle.

Used to have a contender super 14 22lr match also. Again amazingly accurate. Still prefer the auto for hunting.

My son has a Chipmunk pistol and it shoots very well. Triggers need to be cleaned up, but pretty simple to do. He needs more scope, as he only has a 2x on his so really don't know how well it will do on paper yet. Will it outshoot my 14 inch Contender or an $850.00 [used price] Anschutz Exemplar? No but it shoots good enough that misses on our 6 inch steel at 100 yds or 10 in steel at 200 yds are our fault and not the guns. Clay targets at 100 yds are easy. His has the walnut stock and when I find another one with a synthetic stock I will have one too. Not fancy, not high dollar but fun to shoot ,squirrel accurate and won't break the bank.

I urge you to buy a 22. Get whatever fits your budget and buy lots of ammo. The more you shoot it the better off you will be. I would lean to the 10 inch Contender because of the caliber options available but I believe the others you mentioned would be fine too.

In my opinion, the Contender is the best option. Nothing exceeds its versatility, and nothing is more accurate. I competed in IHMSA matches with them for years, and have taken scads of squirrels in N.C. with them

Second or third on the ten inch contender. Get a match barrel if you can.

If you decide you want something with more rounds, you can't go wrong with a Ruger semiauto pistol. They pretty much eat anything and are fairly accurate.
