    Yeah, this thread has me pissed too. I swear I don't know what I would do if someone tried to jack my stuff. It wouldn't be pretty though.

    on a side note, do you ever make it down to Granbury much? You oughtta swing by if you ever do. My dealership is on 51N about 4 miles before you get to Granbury. We handle Scag, Bad Boy, Echo, and as of a few days ago, Husqvarna. :waving:

    The office line is 817.573.3930.

    Don't get me wrong, I never said I wouldn't be all for a tail whooping myself.
    I just said you can't do it legally and I think that's the key here, once the perp(s) go to a hospital it's bad news.
    Actually it's once the police get involved, but...

    Last I checked they don't make the darts for humans so now we'd have to second-guess which animal tranquilizer won't land them in the ER. Well let's see, should we use the elephant or the horse needle? Then again I suppose one could shoot an empty dart if such exists, but almost as well off using a BB gun and that just won't work.

    Personally I like pepper spray, it's a bit gay but oh well.
    You don't even work up a sweat and there's little or less anyone can say or do over that,
    the effect is hard core, but temporary :p

    Mississippi has laws that allow you to protect your property as well. I know for fact of two or three recent incidents of home intruders being shot and killed in their tracks after they entered or was attempting to enter homes. Not absolutly sure, but I believe the law applies if folks are stealing from your property.

    I know its easy to make jokes about killing these people and some may actually do it. But you guys need to remember these are fathers, brothers, sons of other people. For an example my father inlaw was abandoned by his family when he was 9. he lived on the streets and was a pick pocket and thief to survive. One day he was caught in the act and pistol whipped untill unconcious. He was lucky he wasnt shot. Well when he got into his twenties he found God, got married and had 4 kids. He worked hard at a real job and all 4 of his kids graduated college with bachelor degrees except my wife who has a masters in computer engineering. Her father is now a minister and ran for govenor of his town. I know its frustrating to deal with thiefs and i dont know what my first reaction would be if i caught one in the act, but it wouldnt be to kill them.
