Good for you, the key words are "if they actually need killing". I haven't killed one in over fifty years, despite having spent huge amounts of time in the outdoors. I won't kill a snake unless it's him or me.
That is one perspective. Another point of view is that I don't want them around my house where my small children play.

Bond Arms Snake Slayer Derringer .410 would be my minimum. (carry one when hiking in the desert trials).
That is the exact gun that required three hits to kill it. After that I switched to a sod cutter. One whack with the sod cutter dispatches them quick and clean.

The .410 out of that short barrel simply does not have enough energy on it.
