    I'm going to recommend the Ruger New Model Single Six. Cool, solid gun that you can pass on to your kids and grandkids.

    A bit pricy, but I've owned the Thompson Contender with numerous calibers. .22 is available and also .410, a good snake charmer, albeit not subsonic.

    A big stick makes little noise (-:

    Joe,

    Are the snakes for human consumption or just don't want to disturb the neighbors? Good lean meat my friend.

    .22 Short is a variety of .22 caliber (5.6 mm) rimfire ammunition. Developed in 1857 for the first Smith and Wesson revolver, the .22 rimfire was the first American metallic cartridge.[2]

    The original loading was a 29 grain (1.88 g) or 30 grain (1.94 g) bullet and 4 grains (260 mg) of black powder. The original .22 rimfire cartridge became designated the .22 Short with the introduction of the .22 Long cartridge in 1871.
