If it's a pellet gun them most pellet guns are capable of killing a squirrel. Check the FPS (Feet per Second) and if it's over 400 FPS that should be sufficient. Expect to pay $60 and up for a pellet gun. Crosman makes an excellent pellet gun that is rated at 610 FPS Called the American Classic and it cost $70. I also suggest using Hunting (Hollow point pellets) these will be the most effective.

Is the daisy 880 power line a powerful bb gun?

750 fps./BB; 665 fps./pellet The name Power-line may be a little misleading. Modern Pellet rifles are capable of firing a pellet at 1000+ fps. But this is a combination BB and Pellet gun and as far as BB rifles goes 750 fps is a good speed for a BB. This is about as fast as they can possibly go. I own 2 of these and find them very entertaining to shoot for fun.
