    Pistols are HARD to use to kill snakes - unless loaded with shot. I know from experience!
    Nice shot!

    That is a big snake! I would not hold it. They scare me.:lolz: Good eating tho. And a damn fine shot to hit it with a .40. I would have to use a shot gun so I could hit while run in the other direction.:rofl:
