if you just want a dispatch tool for trapping, you want the smallest, lightest old POS that is still at least fires reliably. You are going to abuse anything you carry trapping, and at typical dispatch ranges, accuracy isn't an issue. look for any old beater, a bolt, or single shot is probably best. I like the idea of the cricket posted above. Could be about the best tool for the job

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rapidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

If I am not mistaken, you are only allowed to have three .22 shorts in the firearm at one time. And if you are using it for trapping you would load only one shell when needed. I would go to a Wal-Mart in PA. and buy the cheapest one on the rack. I bought my .22 Marlin Bolt Action at K-Mart in Bricktown over 30 years ago. Great gun!
I vote on a beat up Cricket and .22 shorts.
