I thought I'd relax a bit.

Did about 3 acres w/ a 54" Deere. After that, I hit ~30 ant mounds with the good ole Amdro.

I don't drink much beer while I mow because it gets too sloshed around and tastes like ****.

Afterwards, it was time for a watery cold one and some real relaxation!

Wish I could shot in my yard after I cut it. At same time it takes me all of about 20 mins to cut mine with a push mower, If I drink can strech it out to a couple of hours to get out of other house work.

Cue the "alcohol and gunpowder should not be in the same zip code" Nazis in 5...4...3..

I used to cut 2 acres with a 42" mower. Now I just pay a local guy $50 to do it for me. He's retired and cuts yards as a side business and I can make that money in less time at work than it takes me to cut it. It's a win for both of us.

BTW- I agree about mowing with a beer, the vibration will flatten a beer in no time not to mention that warm beer tastes like pi$$.

The most fun memory from when I was younger, sitting on a boat in a lake in AZ in the middle of no where. Fish were'nt biteing, so we throw 20 bobbers in the water. My dad cracks me a beer and we used my Marlin .22 lr Model 25 to sink them:)

Sounds like a blast!

Back when I was 17/18ish, my best friends (twins) and I would drink some beer at their "pondhouse". We'd sit on a picnic table and pop turtles for HOURS.

It made for a joyous time!

(EDIT - underage drinking and guns: I'm going straight to hell and it's a damned miracle that I've lived this long.)

People need to worry about themselves, not assume things about others and attempt to slander others.

Nice can btw, also where is the 10/22? You do have that sexy black Tac Sol with houge stock? I could be wrong.

Though I had you on my list-people who have a nicer 10/22 than me.

USMCsilver
03-27-2012, 20:34
LOL, I just took out that one to run a couple rounds through.

The X-Ring stayed in the safe. :) I did think about breakin' out one of my other 10/22s, but decided to pass. My kid, Colt, came home and wanted to play T-ball. He stood behind me, with his safety glasses, for two mags and then his attention span was shot. He's 3 years, 3 months, so I can't fault him too much for that.

So...you people do have lists!?!

A beer is refreshing, not drinking. A six-pack or some hard liquor now that is drinking.

And what exactly is the ďdumb things with gunsĒ in this case?

Last time I checked you can drink a beer let alone a light beer and still drive legally. Do you feel a personís abilities are so affected by one beer that they are then a danger if they fire a few rounds? I donít drink but I also trust most here to be responsible with weapons especially a Marine. I like to think that I treat people (and members here) like I want to be treated I donít need a nanny and I doubt USMCsilver need you as one ether.

This reminds me of Bill Clinton and the " I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewenski." Getting a header was sex and he knew it was. Drinking is drinking, alcohol is alcohol no matter what kind of bottle it comes out of. It's people that do stupid stuff like handling a firearm while drinking that make us all look bad to the non-shooting public.

You know you're wrong. Quit trying to defend the indefensible.

I don't think I said anything about fishing and drinking. I was talking about firearms. I do believe that is a different kettle of fish.
I believe they allow you to drive with a blood alcohol level less than .08. My state requires a blood alcohol level of 0.00 to carry concealed. I believe the game warden allows you to drink while fish. I am pretty sure they give tickets for shooting game and drinking. I also believe the sport shooting does not allow any alcohol in their venue. Now that tells me that most sane and reasonable people who deal with firearms are pretty convinced that shooting and drinking is a dumb idea. Even more so when you are training the next generation. What surprises me most is the lack of reaction from the rest of the board. Mixing alcohol and firearms is beyond the pale. Not only is it stupid, it is mostly illegal.
Now all of you who think I'm a hater, get over it. It is a stupid practice and a guaranteed darwin award just waiting to happen.

Well...around here, I've never gotten into a beef with a warden while having a beer and shooting dove on private land. I've never gotten hammered while doing so, and I'm sure if I had, then I'd have learned a lesson.

Fishing and beer? You say that's okay? Well, guess what comes with that? Driving a boat. So -- you can operate a 6,000 pound vessle on water while drinking, but I can't drink one watered down beer and shoot a .22 at a piece of 3/8" steel?

Can you say double standard? I sure can. :tongueout:

And, yes...chalk me up as beer on the water, too. My Yetis always accompany me on my boats! Not leavng land without them. One rule though -- no liquor in the summertime on the boats. I learned my lesson with that one. :)

Not everybody drives a boat while fishing. Besides, I believe the law allows a blood alcohol level below .08 while operating a water vessel. I didn't make the law. I do know that any organization, law included, prohibits alcohol and firearms. I didn't make those laws either, but I follow them. I also know that only idiots engage in both activities while in the presence of children.
If you wanted to keep these activities private, don't post about them on an open forum. Otherwise you should expect condemnation on idiotic activities. What amazes me is the number of other idiots that approve.

Who said anything about wanting to "keep them private"? I don't give two flyin' turds about who knows what I do or how I do it.

I didn't catch it before I went to reply, but where are you from? Awe, hell, while I'm at it, what's your age range, income range, ethnicity, and religion? :dunno:

I've got a sociology minor...so needless to say, I'm intrigued how such things effect some's views.

One other question -- that I really hope that you'll answer honestly: have you ever done anything stupid in your life? Have you repeated such a behavior since the outcome was actually posiitve?

Just curious...

Son, if you can find me someone who is an NRA instructor, any type of firearm instructor, who will tell me I am in the wrong about what I have posted, I will gladly leave this forum. If the authorities tell me I'm wrong, then obviously, I'm in the wrong place. I care deeply about firearm rights, and anyone I find abusing them, especially with idiotic behavior around children, I will call out.

It doesn't matter to me what some fancy-nancy NRA firearms instructor may believe. I couldn't care less about what some LEO would think about the matter. (No offense to NRA instructors nor LEOs -- as far as this issue goes, it really holds no merit if you're either one.)

I am a self-absorbed, egotistical, maniacal individual who will do whatever-the-hell I want, when I want, and not care much about what someone else thinks. (Granted, this doesn't really apply to most family members. However, if they were to share your views, well, I'd tell them to piss up a rope, too.)

Again, I think your socio-economic background and/or geolocation plays a great part here. And, since you probably have/had no control over it, I won't fault you. :embarassed:

Look guy, if the OP is proud of his mowing, his beer, and his hobbies and wants to throw it into one package and tell us, GOOD ON HIM.

May I add that you don't see a pile of crushed empties? I'm not here to try to justify anything here, as your and my ideas are polar opposites, but the beer was probably more than 1/2 full during the whole 3-mag, 75-round "session". :upeyes:

Not "grandpa" here, but "dad".

Beer, water, Gatorade. Accidents happen. I'd say 1 (or 1/2 in this case) is nothin' to fuss over. But, well, looks like I've been wrong quite a few times in this thead!

Nice 10-22, how do you like that ruger mag?

I wouldn't even call it a "10/22" anymore. I mean, from the factory, (Tactical Solutions) it is set up like a Ruger, and spec'd off a Ruger, but it sure as hell isn't a Ruger, ya know? The only thing Ruger on the gun is the trigger group. From what I've read, TacSol isn't making their own trigger groups in house yet.

Or, then again, guess you could call it a 10/22 just like you call any 1911-style pistol a 1911, no matter who made it. :)

I would give my left n$t to be able to mow, then relax and SHOOT in my own yard. I have to settle with bustin a 22lr pistol off the deck and runnin inside before the neighbors see who did it...:whistling:

LOL -- I do remember those days. Then, I got the suppressor and my 77/22 set-up which was virtually silent and I quit caring. I actually worried more about people SEEING me than hearing me. Ha!
