when i was a kid w used to love shooting bumble bees (actually carpenter bees i guess) with our 22 long rifle revolvers and rat shot :) dont worry very few bees were ever harmed :-\ :D :D :D

That's a normal pass time at the tenn house or was until we ran out of rat shot. Got 17 in 1 day

I know someone who shoots carpenter bees on the wing with a Red Ryder BB gun, and another that uses a squirt bottle filled with lye.

We used to use .22 rat shot on cicada killers back on my grandfathers farm, for bumblebees we used wiffle ball bats and tennis racket. Wiffle ball bats work great on lightning bugs too.

when we were kids my Dad let us shoot in the basement. When we ran out of .22s we shot bb guns.  We used to have a spotlight on the target. I vividly remember a fly landing on the target and my brother wet his finger and touched the front sight like Davy Crockett. Then he splattered the fly with one BB from 40 feet. We learned later that he had 20/15 vision.

I thought that was Sargent York that would wet down his front sight with spit on his thumb...

 A couple of weekends ago I came upon a rattlesnake rather abruptly. This was the first one that actually rattled at me. He was coiled up and I put my first 2 shots in the same place, right between the coils. I could see the dirt fly underneath him. I made a slight adjustment and the next shot cut him in half. Pan fried rattler is goooood.

so I'm thinkin about getting either a S&W Governor or the Taurus Judge. Each one will take .410 shot shells or .45 long colt. Anyone have input or these hand guns?
I have looked at and shot both, and I own the Governor.  Takes 45 ACP with a clip device so makes it reasonable to shoot, the judge can't use 45 ACP.  Either one will work, but I like the Governor better for fit and finish and the action is smoother.  As I posted in another thread-a carjacker will have time to learn brail when in jail after a meeting with a 410 in the face.
Retired to the ranch, saw, and sell solar pumps.

Not that I know of. I've never been a fan of bb guns because of ricochet. I never had one when I was a kid. I started on .22
