Rattlesnake Hunting with the Colt Peacemaker Air Gun Replica

Steve Criner heads out west with rattlesnake hunting on his mind, but all he’s got is an air gun.

Going rattlesnake hunting is no easy feat, especially if all you’ve got is a Colt Peacemaker air gun. Watch this video and see how he uses this air gun to ensure a safe rattlesnake hunting experience.

In case you were wondering, the gun used was a metal replica that shoots about 380 feet per second. The Colt Peacemaker is a authentic replica from Umarex.

Did you see how he got the snake right in the head with that shot? This made for an easy kill and the snake didn’t suffer long. Notice how he waited for a bit after the kill to pick up the snake. He knew it was still dangerous even though it was dead.

If you’re looking for an inexpensive firearm that’s great to use while teaching kids about proper handling techniques, the Colt Peacemaker air gun is one worth checking out.
