I assume the Parker is a 12 gauge, the universal answer to the snake problem.
Let’s see west Texas quail and range chickens are available (besides snakes), so it must be a DHE 16ga, 28″ tubes, straight grip, splinter forend, skeleton steel butt plate, two triggers, choked backwards IC left and Mod right, with a load of 1 oz of 8’s. Zero frame (typically 20ga) so a carry all day weight of 6 1/2 pounds. Can also be used on ducks and pheasants. Best all around Parker.
As it’s said: carries like a twenty, hits like a twelve.

Yep, as soon as I hit post on my Snake Charmer comment I knew I should have said “next BBQ or quail hunt”…both are religion out there, and that is the right tool for church.
Anyway other than the 8’s, your sales pitch on that 16 you’re talking about sounds pretty sweet…how much, with the club discount? 🙂
I seem to remember that ‘Toly sealed the deal by telling Naomi he needed a real American cowgirl out on the range. Seems they headed to Vegas for a quick wedding after that,
Is Zed clueless, and Travis nervous?
Or does Zed know what’s going on, and making Travis sweat?
Always make ’em sweat.
Especially when you’re handling a shotgun.
Is mop-head whistling Dixie?
” I wish I was in the land of cotton”
Nah, I don’t think she knows what cotton fields are.
Past the graveyard, in any case.
‘Xactly what I thought when I saw that frame. I figgered someone’d beat me to it.
No Step On Snek
Now I know where that comes from. Who did that version of Gadsden?
The first time i saw that, was Sarah Hoyt. She is a writer and contributor to places, and she is so adamant in her feelings about the poisonous deep state damaging the USA and all that is good about American Individualism.
It’s been out there for a while … somebody came up with this funny pre-schooler looking version of the Gadsden Flag:
Being’s Sarah Hoyt is a naturalized citizen, she knows from experience why America is the better choice, and is determined to help us natives keep America better. She’s real good people.
Listen, all guns are for shootin’, but not out on the range tossed in the back of the truck…PUT THAT PARKER BACK ON THE RACK!
Decent used 12g pumps are still less than two bills, but my all time fave for working outside, fishing, etc. is/was appropriately enough, the Snake Charmer. Just a single-shot .410 with a pistol grip, poly and stainless, light enough to hold like a handgun and not so much recoil as to fly out of your hand. They used to be pretty cheap but the originals by Koon were discontinued and are now jacked up, but the Snake Charmer II is now made (not as nice) by somebody else for about that same 200.
All you need for rattlers, but nothing wrong with going bigger. Main point here is get that Parker out of harm’s way until the next BBQ!
My brother in law lives in the country. Not much on firearms. Until, he ran into a rattler the size of most pythons. Now, carries a .410 in his pickup.
.45 shot loads. Top two for “Mr No Shoulders”[takes skill to miss, but I have it]. Two Legs, a little above center.
Agreed. .45 Colt shot loads in a SAA makes real good snake medicine . . .
Again with the killing of snakes! Didn’t you kill the truly evil one back in October, Zed? Oh, I is heartbroke!
Oh, er…*ahem*… sorry. I just like snakes.
Well, if you REALLY like snakes, they are begging for wranglers down here in The Fla…no license, no limit, and the FWC will even give you a map of state Everglades land where the best hunting is. Might wanna bring some help though. And a big truck. 😀
A really big truck.
And chain. Lots of chain. Maybe a winch to use that chain to drag those suckers out to the solid ground.
Maybe Crotalus up there likes lizards too. We gots some that are eyeballing these sneks (oh yes they are sneks) for dinner, that have themselves been known to lunch on our poor sweet ‘gators that USED to be our apex reptiles. These dang iguanas are fixin’ to be the critters on which Jurassic Park IV is based on. Help? Crotalus? Anybody?
Heh! Gotta get them pythons under control, true enough. I’ve eaten rattler, iguana, and gator. Gotta know how to cook ‘em, or you wind up with a gray, rubbery, tasteless piece of meat.
Crotalus, have you tried stir fried snake? That kind of flash cooking doesn’t usually result in chewy, rubbery chicken, so it might work with snake.
Do you get to choose the “snek” that you target?
There are lots of two legged critters that behave like a “snek”. Or do you have to “play along” until you feel threatened? [Our Prosecutor is a believer in the fantasy of “Racism” against Black snakes.]
I remember hearing the statement, “Not all snakes crawl on their bellies.” I believe it true.
Ahh, yes – KJP aka MopHead the Clown. As with most in the current administration, she is the proof of the ‘Peter Principle’ in action. In reality she(?) is nothing more than kwheer black female of which there are thousands in this country. So nothing remarkable about that. But what she really is a part of the cohort of phreaks, phags, and phanatics that are the face of the USA to the world and a middle finger to all real USA citizens.
Some say she’s(?) incompetent, but I say she’s(?) doing the job she(?) was hired to do: To speak many words without telling you anything.
Chris Plante, superb talk radio host, calls her(it?) “Cringe>” Most appropriately, in my estimation . . .
I though Gin Sake was the worst WH press secretary, ever. Until Karing came along. This maladministration is the most incompetent/malevolent, ever.
“Idiocracy” was supposed to be an entertaining Si Fi movie, not an instruction manual. It’s a lot like “1984 in that regard.
And just to show that truth is stranger than fiction we’ve got both running at the same time.
Many have complained that the interweb has ruined our youth, but the bright side is that now our history is archived and when things go _really_ bad they won’t have to guess who’s to blame.
They can just look it up.
In this regard I think we are blessed with the phenomenon of rebellious youth.
OTOH I’m afraid we may lose it if we conquer aging and exaggerate the already out-of-hand situation of old people never relinquishing power.
Chris Plante also nick-named Sake, with her gasoline red hair as “Col. Kleb”, from the Bond books/movies…
I think it would be funny if the girls heard the gunshot and were confused for a while as to whether Zed had shot Zack or not. That’s more likely in many ways when Jack comes asking for permission, but it would be a funny source of confusion in this case, too.
Not NEARLY enough hair.
