    I got the Mohave Green and Red in my local. I have had plenty of run ins with Diamondbacks and I was cool with two sticks. Rarely have they been aggressive and coming at me. A dozen run ins with Reds and they stayed put. The Greens you can’t take any chances with. No know cure. You got maybe two minutes to call your loved one and say goodbye.

    Now I venture with the bold dog in the sticks. I not going to take any chances on anything smaller than the 12g semi to protect my best friend.

    CroFab works on the Mojave Green bites from what I have read. They are not doubt highly venomous. That said you will always have more than a couple of minutes, even with a nip from more neurotoxic elapids (the Green is approaching the venomous'ness of many elapids from the reading I did) allows time for management of the hit. Guy was bit by an Inland Taipan just north of here (not a native to the area, being kept as a "pet") and he made it even after pontificating a little about calling an ambulance. Snake Catcher that attended to ID the snake for the medical staff said that even his blood ran a little cold when he saw what it was.

    I too care for my pups and snakes are one of my biggest worries....I live in town here and only 30mins ago whacked a Red Belly Black on my front stairs...scared the bejesus out of me as it is cooling off here and they should be all away for winter now !!

    A 12.5” Grendel AR pistol is a great choice.

    I'm guessing you already have plenty of guns to choose from to be the "truck" gun! I know I'm late to the conversation but lets be real. HAHA!

    I am the last person to give advice on just having “one gun”. Objectively I would consider my skill level. Handguns are difficult for the majority of people to shoot. Shotguns are extremely effective but have recoil that bothers most if using most loads. .223 rifles have low recoil and with optics are easy to shoot but they have their downside I am not a big fan of the .223 outside of varmint hunting and if I could ever get that empower job the military would convert to 6.5 grendel lo mas pronto posible.
    Long guns are a pain to carry.
    But push come to shove I would recommend a shotgun. A breach loading gun can be made substantially shorter than a pump or auto, which is great for clearing rooms in your house. It will also kill deer and small game effectively. It is also extremely intimidating if that matters.
    Buy what you think you will enjoy.

    I never paid attention to that until recently. One of my customers had a single shot .410 in a overhead rack in his truck. I thought for sure it was too short to be legal, until I realized how short the receiver was. I was used to seeing really long barrels on breach loaders.
