    have you ever had to fire your piece at someone or is it just a macho thing? just curious. i think its silly to carry a gun while youre mowing. might do a barney fife and shoot your foot. :laugh:

    I hope if you pulled that gun, you are prepared to end someones life because that thief may feel threatened enough to shoot back. I know would not kill someone over my leaf blower and stick edger. Seriously if you guys are that threatened where you mow, then maybe you should consider somewhere else to operate your business. I know there is nothing worse than a thief but I'm not willing to kill over lawn equipment.

    If you pull it you need the set to back it up, are you willing to change your life as you know now forever?
    Go to jail, lawyers, etc......

    I have used the Glock in the past and know in my heart I can kill someone who threatens me or my family, that means stealing from me as well!!!:usflag:

    No trust fund here, I've worked my ass off for everything I have but no MATERIAL item that I have is worth ending someones life. If someone pulled a gun on me or my family, now thats a different story.

    .....and you would most likely be the one in jail. Now how would you provide for your family.

    I have a gun with me quite often. In my area, people are not the problem, a
    sick, possibly rabid animal is more likely. I have shot coyotes off my mower.
    One was watching me from 20 yards away. Has little hair left, and was probally looking for mice/moles in the lawns. Coyotes around here have learned to hit the fields when they are being cut. The mice really run around when they cut the fields... :usflag:
