From somewhere on the Web:

"A bill passed in the Arizona House of Representatives this week makes it legal for homeowners to use small-caliber firearms to kill snakes or rats that enter their property. House Bill 2022 makes it legal to shoot the vermin with a special type of bullet known as a bird- or rat-shot cartridge.

I'm not so sure I'd trust .22 rat-shot to kill a fix-foot rattler. It'd probably just piss him off. I'd shoot the fucker with a 12 gauge but make sure I had a .22 loaded with rat-shot on the premises in case the neighbors called the cops. "What's the problem? I shot him with this .22, just like the law allows. The neighbors say it sounded like a cannon going off? They probably had their hearing aids turned up too loud."
