This year I nearly got bit myself. I was moving a large oxygen tank in a large garage to find an angry baby copperhead underneath. I jumped onto a large steel table at the last second. Then I grabbed a nearby shovel and chopped it into.

Lesson learned. Always have a shovel nearby Big Grin

Yeah, I've had close calls like that too.

Unfortunaly, I didn't have a shovel near by. An old mop handle and my 9 where the closest tools at my disposal.

Water moccasin surprised me when turning over rocks for frogs in my cousins creek once but it didn't strike and I left in a hurry but otherwise I rarely see snakes. I Always wanted to eat one.

9mm Beretta Px4 Storm... with hollow points...

What? It's meant to kill humans not snakes. I had to make due.

-_-

I suggest you use a shotgun with No. 9 shot (target loads).

You can get pistol caliber shot shells, but results are mixed.

Glad all is well. Thumbsup

I had to get rid of the truck because it didn't have room for 2 carseats.

I assure you that this is only a drop in the bucket and barely affects my overall score.

RE: Still shaking...
I feel bad for the poor creature, but I understand you did what you had to do to keep your kids from harm.

Stuff like this makes me happy I live in a country where the only real threat are ticks and mosquitoes.
I am however to not live in a chill place where people just assume you're shooting snakes when they hear gunshots. LOL

Your redneck index must be waaaay negative.

Time for you to move to Massachusetts.
