I'd pick the Ruger single six convertible 22LR/22Mag, either that or a S&W Governor, that way you don't need to go to the trouble of getting snake shot, just get 410 birdshot.

Sure old age didn't have something to do with the demise?

I haven't had mine long, but so far it's been a fine little gun. We've discussed this gun before and those that have actually owned one for several years, love them.
+ 1.....my favorite to shoot as I can shot our in the back yard....also the gun I'm most likely to carry when working outside...great option...check it out!

But these things happen. My wife is VERY afraid of snakes, and although I keep my dog's on leashes when the snake comes out, I am prepared.

I also keep insurance on the jeep, but don't plan on having an accident. I also carry extra water and gas.

With that said..... I would suggest that you think over all of your wants, needs and desires and pick a quality revolver that will still shoot well.
Adjustable sights should be high on the list. Perhaps a .357 with the Speer ShotShells would be a great choice.

I do have the .22 ShotShells but am not real impressed with them.

My motto is "If you plan on killing it, you can't be over gunned"
My wife doesn't like the slither of snakes, she has made it a point to be able to protect herself. I have a smith 357/38 that she has packed on camping trips and she has learned to shoot that well. She started with 38 special's and slowly moved to 357 rounds. Lately as she has learned more and thought about the whole self defense game she has stepped up with a bigger plan for her safety. I like guns so she has her pick of almost every different carry weapon, so the last camping trip she was packing the Taurus Judge with the self defense 410 rounds. She will empty all five rounds on the slithering little magots.

Killing every snake you come across is like killing every spider you come across--
If everyone does that there will be much more to worry about
