    I usually have mine concealed, and only expose it when I intend to use it.

    Don't try Jello shooters, that just makes 'em wilder.

    The guys in carry issues have convinced me. I'm going to OC everywhere in a SERPA. Hope I don't have an ND. :whistling:

    I won't go into details about the gun I'd use, suffice to say it's a magnum. :)

    I've always been well served with my .22 LONG Rifle.

    I think a .35 Remington or .45-70 lever action would serve to dispatch a beaver nicely.

    I have found out that if you just go out to shoot beavers without the proper safety precautions you will probably just add to the population. If you can find a domesticated one and make friends they will keep the rabid ones away.

    I think it's pretty obvious; 9mm Glock with marine spring cups (for underwater shooting, if necessary).
    Glock field knife strapped to the other leg for backup, natch.
    Good-to-go!

    :whistling: (Taking this as a serious question)

    The only times I've ever know anybody to shoot them, they used a 12 ga and a load of buckshot.

    They're bigger than something you'd use a 22/22 magnun for, but it would probably work with a head shot. A 30/30 would certainly work. In a handgun, 38/357 would do fine.
