I like using a rifle I plan to use for hunting larger game, deer, hog, etc. It is very good practice, can hit a jack, can hit a buck.
As a "real" rabbit gun, a Ruger 10/22.

I haven't hunted rabbits since I was a teenager, but back then we always hunted at night with a light and a .22 rifle.

M&P Shield or full size, both in 9mm. Very hard but lots of fun!

If I am only hunting cottontails I usually carry my .22 over 20GA Savage Campers Companion. If I know hunting will be in real close quarters I have an old Savage four tenner insert I can slip into the 20GA barrel to convert it to 410.

17 mach 2 converted 10/22 is my go to rabbit/squirrel gun. With ammo getting hard to find. The savage FVT sees a lot more time.

Been a rabbit hunter all of my life. Grew up using a 22 rifle, single shot 4/10, 20 gauge, pump 20 gauge, 12 gauge, or 22 cal air rifle (.177 too). My go to for many years now is my 22 cal High Standard pistol shooting HP ammo. Many of rabbit meals have been taken with a 22 HP to the head. Strap on a head lamp and get some.

Ancient (50+ years) bolt action Mossie with a couple of chokes that screw on, in .410 and #6 shot. Lots of bunnies in the pot with this old rig.

In the past, my Remington 572. Now that I am really liking the Savage 24C in 22LR/20 ga, it may be the one for small game
