Ha Ha...I do that with SLUGS and I get a great sense of satisfaction too.  Lately though, my garden has been invaded with these striped snails and I Just crush them with my fingers (same satisfaction)  :-)))))

My front yard is a planted in succulents and cacti (a few Boophones seem quite happy there, as well). Snails are uncommon due to the aridity, but a few venture in during rainy weather or  foggy evenings. The yard is on a busy street and nothing beats the satisfaction of rolling an invasive European landsnail beneath the implacable wheel of oncoming traffic :-)
