    Yep, me too. The old boy gets an A for effort though.

    Cotton Mouths are some nasty critters. As a general rule, when afield I leave all snakes alone, but when they get close to home, they gotta go. Got bit by a Copperhead once, the snake died.

    Feel sorry for the old fella, sometimes a garden hoe is the best way to go.

    Wow! Glad it wasn't more serious than it was. I think I'd invest in a revolver if I was the him.

    I agree with the garden hoe method. Shooting a snake isn't easy and I've seen people empty their gun trying to hit the darn things. The last rattlesnake I encountered at my door I simply scooped it into a paper bag and hauled it off to the desert.

    I had a .38spl Derringer of some type that I bought on a whim years ago. I think it was an American, but it could've been a Bond, I just don't remember. The thing was scary to shoot, at 15' one had no idea where the round was going to end up, and the trigger pull was so hard as to make that operation dangerous in itself. I can easily see how this poor guy could've shot himself trying to make the darn thing function. I got rid of mine as soon as the novelty wore off....scary gun.

    I know, this would never happen if we simply outlawed snakes.

    I thought so too. Or did he actually kill it as well as shoot himself? The article is not clear on this.
    It just says snake was there when help arrived.

    The article doesn't say it was there when help arrived. His caretaker, a person who takes care of him, arrived and saw the snake. He then got his gun, shot once and missed. Then shot his own hand on the second shot. The last sentence of the article says the snake got away.

    I used to go fishing with an old girlfriends dad. We'd go to Lake Fork, and fish for large mouth bass. One day We're trolling by the shore, and run under some
    brush. A cotton mouth drops off the limb and into the bottom of the boat. I had a Beretta 92 at the time, and I emptied that gun trying to shoot that
    freaking snake! As I'm standing there with an empty gun looking at my friend, and him looking back at me, the cotton mouth calmly slithers over the side into the water, not a scratch on it. Alex never said a word until we got home. I spent the next six months patching, filling, sanding, and painting 16 holes in the bottom of that boat.... last time I ever went fishing.
