As an alternative to the Taurus the .S&W Governor can throw out .45acp as well with provided moonclips if memory serves me, I believe the price range ta be tween bout 650$ / 450$ the latter be'n without red crimson trace laser

I got a 42" rattler on our front walk last night with my ruger 10/22 because that was the closest weapon available that was not a .45 semi. This guy was big for rattlers in this area. The length of the 10/22 allowed me to to get close enough to shoot parallel to the ground as opposed to shooting into the concrete. Single shot took off 80% of the head.

If I were looking for a beater to keep in the truck for snakes, I'd check the local pawn shops for a cheap single shot 20ga. It's cheaper than .410, more available, and more shot. I'd cut the barrel down to 18¼", put a buttstock shell holder on it with a few bird shots and a few buckshots and maybe a slug. That's just me.

Hey Hotfudge I got a Mossberg 410 pump for that type situations here In eastern Kentucky...

A big stick is all you need to kill a snake. Never understood the snake gun mentality of people. Unless it's a poisonous snake why kill it? Pick up a stick walk up to it and give it a good whack. That is all there is to it. 1/2 of there body length is all any snake can strike and most less. A 4' rattler strikes 2' so what is the problem?
