I've decided against becoming a gun owner. I live in a safe neighborhood. I can use my friend's gun for target practice. Just no real need. I really do like shooting though, and will continue to perfect my skills.
Just in case anyone wondered.

I wouldn't recommend getting a gnu either. It might make a mess of your lawn, and could potentially attract crocodiles (in which case, your neighbor's gun would certainly come in handy.

In all seriousness, thanks for the update. Congrats on your new hobby, and may you get full enjoyment out of it.

P.S. It's rattle snake season in my neck of the woods. Can I call you for some sharpshooting should one appear in my front yard?

A handgun isn't best for snakes. A shotgun or a handgun with specially loaded shot bullet works best. I HATE rattlesnakes.

I've never seen a rattler. If I did I'd probably run. I'd probably flee too!

I grew up with rattlesnakes. One bit my dog. I used to catch snakes all the time and it didnt' bother me, except they secrete a scent that smells like rotten meat.

My dad once told me a story about a friend of my grandfather's who was out fly fishing, using hip waders. He was out about thigh deep in the current which was tugging and pulling at his waders. Or so he thought. He looked down and there was a rattlesnake, fangs stuck in his waders. I don't remember what the fellow did with the rattlesnake, but I have often put myself in that position, and wondered what I would do. Would I try to get out of my waders while still in the river, possibly having them fill with water and then drown? Would I be brave enough to reach down and grab the rattlesnake, remove it from my waders, and fling it out in the river? Or would I run screaming, snake attached?

I do know one thing. I would need therapy for many many years.

An Airedale Terrier is great protection from rattlesnakes (and bears).....

I would just have to gnaw my leg off.
