Ruger's are nice. But for snakes I agree with the others, a .22 wont cut it.

The ruger 22/45 makes a nice companion for the money. Great semi auto, a little lighter on the pocket book than some of the others. The ruger single six is also a great gun, especially with a 22lr and 22mg combo, just swap the cylinders. My buddy has one of the new walthers, it is a nice gun but the grip doesn't fit my hands as well as the 22/45.

What is wrong with a 22 for snakes?? Just shoot them in the head?? I normally am not a Ruger person. But one of my favorite firearms is my single six Ruger. It is not real accurate(but then what Ruger is), but it is great for point shooting out to ten yards. And point shooting(IMO) is the most fun of any of the shooting sports. Try it, you will be surprised how accurate you can become, in a short time frame.

I also have a Browning BuckMark "Silhouette Model". It is the most accurate 22 pistol I have ever seen. It will even out shoot our Model 41. Tom.

I agree. I just dont understand this board sometimes. My usuall weapon for a snake is a hoe, a stick, an ax, or my boot. I missed the memo that said a .22 wasnt good enough for snakes.

Why shoot them we just catch them and either turn them loose somewhere else or if it is a rattlesnake we will take it home and cook it.

Both are good, but you must be a good shot to shot them in the head. A 38 with shot shells works good on snakes....
Yes it does. And the .45 Colt with shotshells works even better!
