Rat shot? They also have .22cal that use just the primer to launch the bullet.
The loud part is the bullet hitting the animal.

I have two you can borrow. I'll try to remember to bring them to Longview.

My attic is full of squirrels, flying squirrels too. I can't get them out. If I plug the hole they go in they just chew through the wood to get back in. I've caught them in the traps but it's a never ending thing.

What about Lion Poo?

I know it sounds silly, and not sure if it's available in the US, but in the UK you can order it. People with very nice Flower Gardens will buy it and put it around their garden to scare off neighbours cats that dig up plants and make their own deposits in the soft soil.

Then again we're talking Texan Squirrels, the males would probably rub it under their arm pits and then strut around claiming to have taken out Chuck Norris.

Just toss some lion poo up there... that'll do it.

Oh wait... Yeti beat me to it. Crap!

Next time you paint mix in all the powdered cayenne or habanero pepper you can find. Wink

You can buy dehydrated fox and bobcat urine online.
I've used the bobcat urine to keep rabbits out of the garden with mixed results. You have to re-apply after a rain.
