And you were one of the ones to bring up "grammer." You need to get the speck out of your own eye before you accuse others.

I just bought my wife a S&W .38 today. She is going to get her concealed permit and put it to use. The more guns out there the better... lord knows the thieves will NEVER have trouble getting there hands on a "piece"... might as well even the playing field.
Thanks you! I guarantee he hasnt had anything stolen from him.

Most gun shootings and deaths happen within the home with their own gun. But do as you want.
He's had some stuff stolen.

I believe it's not $75,000 but more like $1.00. That's what 1 Speer Gold Dot 40 cal 180GDHP cost me. Should the thief ask himself THAT question, I'd bet he would say yes and walk away. The problem is, they are too stupid and think nothing will happen to them.

My tri axle was stolen by an organized crime ring. The FBI got involved because a pattern was forming with heavy equipment thefts. The FBI told me the equipment gets dismantled and put on ships to never be seen again. If you think an organized crime guy will be scared of anything you bring out ive got news for you. They are also not stupid. Those guys should recieve no mercy. However i will not get into a shoot out with them to possibly lose my life ove a piece of insured equipment. I have also had a skidseer stole and have watched from across a yard a thug running down the road with my cutoff saw. I have had more things stolen than most have you have even owned. Still wont shoot over it. I wont lie, my first reaction is pure anger and i feel like i want to kill them but then logic takes over.

haha i am now. I owned a construction company for 11 years. Had 3 fulltime crews. A bit over 3 years ago i was forced to give it up when i was diagnosed with brain cancer. So i went the easy route and mow lawns. I should have just retired like the doc wanted me too. Lawnworks you and Green team should hold hands and sing campfire songs with the rest of the children on here.
