Brought a smile to my face. I walked in from work one day only to see my fiance sitting underneath the living room coffee table with a blanket over it while aiming out the open patio door with my Marlin .22 auto loader popping squirrels in our veggie garden. apparently she had someone install a 8in can on it and the thing sounded quiet as a mouse fart.
im not ashamed to say i was a little aroused by the incident.
you spray paint a little gopher silloette on your wall or something. 4 more and your a goher ace.
That almost makes me wish I lived in Kansas...almost.
Was looking for an old pic and I apparently missed this...
Missouri, goddamnit. The Real Kansas City is in Missouri.

Can't decide which evil black rifle to buy? My thoughts.
I'm not giving you my opinion, I'm telling you how it is.
I've shot a couple rabbits with 00 Buckshot just for funsies. You should give that a try the next time a critter invades your property. Sometimes those bastards just can't be reasoned with and you have to do things the hard way.
Edit: My buddy is dieing to shoot a cow with his new Barrett.
.22 or .50BMG
Why go between?
...I forgot double jaw leg traps, nerve gas and hand grenades......
My wife's grandpa had the best answer to gophers. Fill the gopher hole eith Propane, light the propane. Wasn't the safest thing to do, but there are few things funnier than watching an old man risk his life in an anti-gopher crusade.
Not sure that'd be sufficient.

There is a relative derth of cats in my neighborhood now, but no more cat poop in my kids sandbox...
you'll need trap setters, and be carefull setting the traps, if you're not, you can break one of your hands.
