Default Good snake gun?

My brother wants to get a gun to keep in his work truck and kill snakes that he comes across. What would be the best kind for him to get? My idea was something like a .410 or a .22 pistol.

I would say a 410. Bc if you get the .22 revolver you would have to get a permit. And you can find a nice single shot 410 cheaper than the revolver.

.410 is a really universal little package. Shot, slugs, and 3 Ball loads are available for it. It would be more useful than any pistol.

Thats true ibwar. I didnt think about that. A little 410 would be great.

A .410 Snake Charmer would fit real handy in the pickup cab. They are sort of a long barreled single shot pistol/shotgun hybrid.

I think your brother is looking at it all wrong. The best defense is a great offense. Take care of the area of snakes BEFORE he works there. All he has to do is pick up the pocket I.C.B.M.

I'll have to agree with sniper762. The Taurus Judge is capable of shooting .45 Colt (not my first choice at snakes), .45 Colt shotshells, or .410 shotgun shells.

Easy to carry, easy to store be it in your pack or your car. Suffices as a tolerable self-defense weapon, too, as long as you keep your shots in close.
