I live out in the county so screw the neighbors.(I'm a good neighbor BTW)
No snake loads--just FMJ, same thing as my carry load.
Now the wife is afraid to go outside. Maybe that's a good thing?

I have dispatched a few copperheads in my younger days; the usual tool was a garden hoe.

I fear no snake or spider, but if they are within my comfort zone of 100 ft and I see them, they are dead.
Its not fear; It is a survival of the fittest, and believe me they will not think about killing you, its just what they do.
Personnaly I'm looking for anything that will work, using the latest weapon is not concern. Shoe, brick, shovel, bazooka, WMD. I don't care, it just must die.

People put snakes and stuff in vodka, you should've chucked it in the wort and made some snake beer. If it works for vodka, it should work for beer, right?

FMJ - Full Metal Jacket
While it sounds bad ass, hence the movie title, FMJ is a target round nowadays. It used to be all one could get. Many feel the 9MM is insufficient, but that was only true when FMJ was the only option. Modern bullets (HP hollowpoints) make it totally effective.

I would recommend a snake load to ensure a shotgun pattern and a guaranteed kill. Also, there is no energy to penetrate and harm your property. I had a skunk in my garage, and it took 3 snake loads to kill his stank azz. I wasn't going to risk shooting a hole in the wall or chipping the floor like Manuel Noriega's horrid vestige.

That being said, FMJ is certainly more sporting. I get the impression that this influenced you, since you eschewed the obvious shovel decapitation option. Your option of course!

For self defense, FMJ is simply unsafe! It will penetrate right through a victimizer (now, happily a victim!). It may hit someone on the other side or damage your property further. All this while doing minimal tissue damage, and failing to stop the threat.
It also will not mushroom like a HP hollowpoint round. Mushrooming is what causes the internal damage that stops all but the most insane or drug addled in their tracks.
I only caution you about this to better defend yourself. I am an armed LEO and shooting enthusiast, lest you think I am bloviating from my posterior.
Firearms rant over and out. Be well, friend!

Now you're talking! Blammy!!!

P.S. I am drunk now.

P.P.S. In my Beretta are 16 hollow points. Should I enter the People's Republic of New Jersey, I would spend 40 years in jail. 5 years for every round. They think it is sporting to blast away with those old fashioned FMJs I guess.

Reason: I am drunk now. PAY ATTENTION!

Living in America sounds so fun! You guys get to shoot skunks and snakes! The closest we get to that sort of thing in the UK is putting a glass on a spider, slipping a piece of paper under, and carrying it outside.
