How To Blast A Gecko

By David E. Petzal and Phil Bourjaily

Here is what you might call a mini-quiz, except we're looking for opinions, not facts.

1. The Geico gecko is no longer cute. In fact, the little green bastard is getting pretty annoying. Which cartridge would you use to remove him?

2. Due to (global warming, Hillary, end of the oil supply, you name it) society collapses and in order to survive, people are forced to take to the hills, or the swamps, or whatever is available. When you pack up your few essentials, which handgun do you bring?

Go to it.

Although being a female i should say how could you talk about killin a lizard your just givin people ammo for saying hunters are sick and disorderly....but im not going to.I would love to smear some lizards.Personally i love blasting them and frogs around with bottle rockets or strap fire crackers to them like me and my cousin do around the 4th.Articles like these make me realize why i love field and stream.

My father told me that he and his friends had a great deal of fun shooting small lizards many years ago in Nevada. Their method was to shoot the rock under the lizards head with a .22LR causing the splater to cut the head off.

Trae, I here ya!I've come across allot of 303 and 03-A3 shooters with the same identical problem. If your going to use it for hunting, save the stock from dings and pings and switch to a aftermarket stock during season. That will solve the most of the punishment.By the way, that 303 Brit is defiantly no slouch!That 303 of yours will hold it’s own against any 30-06 or 7mm Rem Mag when loaded right as with any other cartridge in competent hands! NO JOKE!Like to have a dollar on how many elephants that cartridge has taken!

This thread is part riot part scary s--t!My first thought on the gecko was "A this is what that .204 Ruger would be good for!" But have to tip my hat to the suggestions that the .303 Brit would be justified.For the hills I figure I cheat a bit; take my MK II and lots of double deuce ammo for filling the pot, my M 29 would ride the back of my hip for the tough spots though. Of course I aint heading for the hills without the 06 or the 12Ga either!!!

I can't decide whether to take a bucket of lizzards to golf practice or have races across the highway with them, if your lizzard makes it across, you loose. In the event that you do loose and the little bugger makes it across, try again and maybe you'll have better luck the second time.As for the handgun bit, Ruger MKIII all the way for the little stuff and either the Glock 34 or S&W 686 for everything else. Great blog by the way!!!

When I was a kid and only allowed a Red Rider BB gun, I found that if you unscrewed the barrel and loaded the tube with a small handfull of pebbles, it made a great scattergun for frogs. Much more fun than BBs and that's what that little smartass lizard needs.For survival in the wilds, a .357 does the job on big game including two legged but you have to have some kind of .22 for small game and birds and because the ammo is light enough to carry plenty.

I'm with Joel on this one. I'm sicker of those stupid cave men than I am the Geico gecko. Send the lizard to the caveman's therapist so he quits whining and toss the cavemen into a gulag somewhere.That "which survival pistol" question is always a fun one, it's hard to decide between "highly packable and practical .22 auto pistol" (like my Ruger mk II which is probably what I'd take) and the "more powerful and super-reliable .357/.44/.45LC single action revolver". Both are valid choices, and if you could carry both, why not do so.

I wouldn't shoot him at all. I have worked for GEICO for 35 years and feel that he is part of my family. Instead you should go on line at GEICO.com and see if we can't save you 15% on your car insurance. Although I would hesitate to write you as you sound as if road rage maybe a factor to consider.

Now I remember what started my love affair with this blog. Truly meaningful and interesting discussions such as cartridge selection for the Geico gecko. Unfortunately I can think of no cartridge small enough to inflict the necessary pain and anguish required to even the tables with the critter. Fortunately I am an airgun enthusiast and have hollow point .177 caliber pellets. I believe my RWS 34 could remove his tail and rear legs, leaving the upper torso intact... after watching him pull his bloody entrails around for a while I'd put him out of his misery. Maybe.Survival handgun? I guess my Mark II, as it would provide food and I could carry thousands of rounds but any handgun is a pretty sorry weapon in a firefight.

I'm with Joel on this one. I'm sicker of those stupid cave men than I am the Geico gecko. Send the lizard to the caveman's therapist so he quits whining and toss the cavemen into a gulag somewhere.That "which survival pistol" question is always a fun one, it's hard to decide between "highly packable and practical .22 auto pistol" (like my Ruger mk II which is probably what I'd take) and the "more powerful and super-reliable .357/.44/.45LC single action revolver". Both are valid choices, and if you could carry both, why not do so.

When I was a kid and only allowed a Red Rider BB gun, I found that if you unscrewed the barrel and loaded the tube with a small handfull of pebbles, it made a great scattergun for frogs. Much more fun than BBs and that's what that little smartass lizard needs.For survival in the wilds, a .357 does the job on big game including two legged but you have to have some kind of .22 for small game and birds and because the ammo is light enough to carry plenty.

Now I remember what started my love affair with this blog. Truly meaningful and interesting discussions such as cartridge selection for the Geico gecko. Unfortunately I can think of no cartridge small enough to inflict the necessary pain and anguish required to even the tables with the critter. Fortunately I am an airgun enthusiast and have hollow point .177 caliber pellets. I believe my RWS 34 could remove his tail and rear legs, leaving the upper torso intact... after watching him pull his bloody entrails around for a while I'd put him out of his misery. Maybe.Survival handgun? I guess my Mark II, as it would provide food and I could carry thousands of rounds but any handgun is a pretty sorry weapon in a firefight.
