I'd go 10mm for a woods gun.
More power than the 357sig or mag, lighter than a 44 with higher capacity and "close enough" power. Easy choice for me.
I also agree with several others, I've never understood the idea of shooting a snake. Killing one, maybe. Shooting it, no.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
