    Definitely armadillos; I've got enough in my yard. When my Westies hear them outside; I go out the other door with this and get one or two a night.

    Internally Suppressed Ruger 77/22 with a NV scope.

    Dog looked OK. What did he ignite? Could have been tragic.

    From what I can gather from googefu people put propane in mole holes and light it off.

    I think he did - he wound up near the back fence to the left of the little white table-looking thing, and was moving. Look closely after the dust settles. What did that idiot do - pump a burrow full of oxygen and acetylene? And was that Florida Man again?

    The Glock would have been better. Known size.
    You could have Sasqautch hands or itty bitty little hands.:hugs: Just sayin.

    Btw Armadillos. suppressed 22 up close will cure that problem.

    Mine don’t let me get that close before they beat feet. That’s why I use the 77/22.

    I did use a shotgun on one once, but he was walking around in the middle of the day acting weird. I didn’t want to risk missing him , so I let loose with an M4 - my 3 gun gun.

    Hit him the first time, but damn if a pellet didn’t bounce back off his shell and draw blood on my leg.

    I really do hate those suckers.

    So you put that glove there? I thought it was the first responders leaving their used gloves everywhere again. Could be hazardous
