That's if the bullets even found the coiled, menacing serpent. The shooter didn't dare get any closer than 15 feet. Jim Epley, who turned 74 last week, watched Wednesday morning as his neighbor used a .22-caliber handgun in an effort to dispatch the Eastern diamondback. Epley knew it would take more firepower. He fetched his own .44-caliber Magnum. Two shots later, the snake was dead, although it continued to squirm for a while.
