Lesson Learned...

Last night my husband had to go get something out of the car for me to wash. The night before he had a dream about a snake biting him, so he decided to look around on the porch and steps just to be safe. Good thing he did. There was a copper head on our bottom step curled up. He didn't want to get his gun because it is a shotgun and would have done major damage to the step and skirting by it. So he got the next best thing he could find... A paintball gun....He shot it several times lol. Only thing it did was kind of daze the snake. I text my mom and told her and she came over with a shovel and my sil came over with a broom. Yeah not sure what she planning on doing with the broom lol.
My mom grabbed our machete that was by the porch and killed it.
Lesson learned here is, check the porch and steps before going outside and paintball guns do nothing on snakes lol.

Lol@ the paint ball gun!

They hurt if its close to the person's body or face. (idiot brother found that out the hard when cousin shook his paint ball gun & one popped right on my brothers face the upper lip & swelled up, he was fine.)

Thank gosh your DH wasn't hurt nor no one else.

Lol I used to play paintball before I had kids. After we got done playing a game one time, a guy came up behind a friend and me and shot us each in each of our butt cheeks... He was about 5 feet away..
I am so happy no one was hurt by the snake either. We have to put some stuff by the porch. That is the second copper head on our porch.

Yeah I can kind of understand the paintball gun, not sure about the broom lol. She did sweeo the ground on the way back to my parent's house to make sure no snakes were in front of her lol.
