Somewhat true. Typically they say 1/2 to 2/3 their body length. Personally I'd rather not measure one until I have shot & killed it. Now we are back to the subject at hand. I may be superstitious but I will cut the head off for good measure as well.

This is all based on where they are however. I don't normally do this at the zoo.

The aforementioned 42" inch rattler can strike almost 2 feet. I'd rather buy a .410 then take my chances with a trip to the hospital. One avoided hospital trip, and the gun has paid for itself. That's my mentality when it comes to snake guns.

I would never kill a Gardner/other non poisonous snake. After I'm sure it's just a Gardner snake I usually just leave them alone.

38special snake shot is perfect IMHO.. Ive killed many many rattlers over the years. Rocks sticks hoes shovels rifle shotgun and pistol. Ive never liked the 22lr snake shot performance. And most snake shot dosnt perform well in semi-auto's.

If a single shot is fine the
Super Comanche cab be bought for around 170 dollars.
Rossi has there 410/22 match pair pistols for around 300 dollars. Make a snake or tree rat / bunny getter too.
