Greetings All, am interested in finding a round for my .38 Special Six round revolver for Snake control. Unable to carry a Long Gun while walking dog(s), used Google but it just brings up one brand & I’d like options. Any help/links/brand names would be great!

My wife’s step-dad used to carry this in .22 revolver and got good use out of it. It looks like they have it in all calibers. I don’t know if I would personally use it in a super expensive gun. He had an “old beater” .22 revolver as he called it that was fully safe and functional, just not his nicer every day carry.

If it wasn’t for my wife’s step-dad, I would never have known about it. He absolutely hated snakes.

I think BB gun that powered with CO2 chamber either .177 would do the job!! It will kill small size animals. I owned a BB Glock 19 licensed replica. It looks and feels like real Glock 19. I use it for my dry fire training at home. You can get this BB gun on amazon.

I’m not sure anyone besides CCI makes shotloads, they seem pretty pricey for what they are. Myself, I have a single shot Derringer in 45 long colt caliber which allows me to shoot .410 shotshells which are much cheaper.

This totally reminded me, S&W makes the Governor, which shoots 410 shells as well as .45. You may want to check that out, always good to find a reason to buy a new gun! :slight_smile:

Greetings, yes my first choice was a polymer Taurus Judge, still on my radar as a purchase bc it has many different shell options for both human & wild animal. Suspenders required I would think lol it’s a beast but has its usefulness :peace_symbol:
