Heay, All I said was "considering" I have either lived, worked or vacationed in the desert for over 40 years, I carry a snake stick on all my hikes and have used it on many snakes, I am 58 years old now and maybe my reactions aren't that good any more, If a .22 pistol with bird shot will work (sounds like from others it doesn't) I would shure "consider" it. NO, I would not carry a gun in the park. Part of my asking this question is the fact that one of my biologist friends who works contract for NPS carries some sort of large calaber pistol with shot in it, she spends weeks at a stretch in remote areas and has had the need to use the pistol twice, says she won't leave home with out it. Be nice....Rick
