What kind of snake is that? I can't tell whether or not those are rattles on the end.

Anyone know if this (or know of any other snake shot .45) will feed reliably in a 1911?

If not, I guess I could always use the excuse to get a revolver in 44 or 45LC to tote around the yard
This product cycles just fine in my Kimber Ultra Carry II. But then again this gun will cycle an empty shell as well. I suspect it will just depend on the gun and how picky it is. Obviously mine is not picky. BTW...a .410 makes for a very nice snake gun.

They make fairly decent BBQ but I don't want a lot of it.

I reload my revolvers with CCI shotcups filled with #11 shot. Best up close.

Seriously, time for you to get a nice revolver...
You know, I wouldn't be above that if it wasn't any other snake. Copperheads....suckers only appear when you are right on'em.
