    Just leave em be, let em start tearing the trash and spraying everything and your wife will change her mind if you leave the messes for her to tend to. My wife had the same issue with the stray dogs until one day while she was cleaning up a ripped trash bag she watched a stray mutt attack one of the neighbor kids over his sandwich. She came insiode after the .22 herself.

    birdshot/ratshot is just barely sufficient to do the job INSIDE A BARN...outdoors, at over 7-8 paces, forget it..

    The Intent was so that farmers could clear their barns/outhouses/sheds of nuisance critters...
    without going thru the walls/roof and causing leaks...

    But for crawling up in an attic and blasting out the squirrels/other critters, PERFECT!!
    Close enough range that it works!!

    But in that vein...I prefer .22WMR shotshells to .22lr shotshells...way more effective, but still without major penetration thru plywood.

    got soft and we decided to feed it, cripes....

    the dog keeps molesting him, figured he'd just kill it!
