    I think the title says it all. I'm looking for a single shot snake charmer to carry in my Jeep when I'm in the Arizona desert.
    When I was a young man I could hit them with a pistol, but now that I am of an advanced age, I simply cover them in dust and small rocks. It's time for a small shotgun!
    Oregon or Washington will be fine.
    Let me know what you have and your selling (not asking) price and we'll go from there.
    Thanks for your interest!

    I found one at Bi-Mart for $119.97! It's a Rossi single shot .410 and not a "Snake Charmer" or a "Tuffy" but a little work with a hack saw and I have an 18.5" barrel!:)

    Sorry, I had a typo. It should have read "18.5" barrel. That's what happens when you type without your glasses on!

    Sawed off shotgun.
    National Firearms Act

    The original Snakecharmers were an NFA firearm and required the stamp, like suppressors and SBR's.

    I wasn't aware of that. I'm assuming that you are referring to the pre '68 firearms or perhaps even the pre-'38 gun control acts? I've seen several, very old single shot .410 long barreled pistols that were made back in the early 30's that were supposed to be "snake" guns. Heck, I even remember the 20MM anti tank gun that you could buy for about $100.00 that was advertised on the back page of the American Rifleman magazine! My dad bought us two M-1 carbines for $20.00 each and two 1911 a1's form $20.00 each. They were advertised as Gov't surplus and in NRA "Good" condition. As it turns out, they were brand new and still in the cosmoline! I sure miss those days.....
