Looking for a side arm for no other reason than killing poisonous snakes , yesterday we killed 7 cotton mouths with sticks and a machette , and a 4 ft moccasin against a 18 inch machette is not my idea of a fair fight , it is so dry that when ever you find a water hole you find snakes -------- some brand of .22 Mag revolver that will shot rat shot loads is what I am thinking , also like the Judge .410/45 but they are pricey and shells are a bummer to carry --------- what's a good >22mag revolver without breaking the bank and the best brand of rat shot

'Snakenapping and Ransom '...all of you are right on using revolvers ...most 22 autos hang -up w/the crimp drag that scores the end of chambers...we use to have a ball w/poison snakes...as long as they wave a white flag w/their hands up ???...check w/Audubon Zoo long ago they would get in a adoption and buying mood ???...cheers ???
