Re: Rattlesnakes and pellet guns

I have found that whacking them with the flat of a shovel is 100% effective.

After one whack, you can use the shovel to separate the head from the body.

Re: Other than turning the barrel

I have a 357 SAA that shoots left also. It came from the factory with the front sight slightly left of top dead center already, so turning the barrel doesn't appear to be an option.

It must have been manufactured on a Monday morning or a Friday afternoon.
