Shot this guy a few minutes ago in the front yard by the drive. 54" long,12 and a button. Uncle had been here visiting and had just walked out to the truck to leave. I went back in the house and had just sat down when I heard 3 quick gunshots. Looked out the window and saw the uncle, pistol out and walking fast across the yard. Knew what it had to be so I grabbed the 870 and hit the door. My uncle had got a body shot in with the .40 BHP and I finished him off with the 870. 2nd rattler this year.
