After A Long Day Of Grass Cuttin'...

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$$.

Oh...hell, I know. I'm a big boy, I can handle them.

I don't see a beer and a car a problem, and I put MANY more people at risk when I drive, ya know?

FWIW, all bullets made impact where desired.

Good fodder for the anti's.

Rule one:
Booze and guns and booze and cars should never be mixed.

Rule two:
If you think you have an exception see rule one.

Well, hell -- just so this won't come down to bashing because of a single, watered down Busch Light, maybe I should go do some Photoshop and turn it into a Coke?

BTW, the "antis" are too busy w/ Trayvon right now, so I think I'm good.

I wish I could shoot in my back yard. Of course, if I could, I would go broke buying ammo.

Give him a break Bush Light is 99.99% water. I do not drink beer on a rider it will go flat so fast. I just take lots of breaks.

When I was a kid, my grandpa would make me mow his front 3 acres with a push mower, but we always went plinking out back when I was done. Good times and good memories!

I used to cut my 5 acres with a 54" conventional rider, but a couple years back, I bought a 60" Gravely zero-turn. Reduced my mowing time by nearly half... and it has cup holders!

I'm always concerned when people who are raising kids do dumb things with guns.

That's very nice of you.

FWIW, I don't do "dumb things" with guns when around my kid.

You should probably worry about what you can control....if anything.

OP That looks like all day fun!
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.)

Man 1 beer and a gun and peopls start wonder'n where pregnant wife with the blackeye is. Or you dirty kids with kool-aid stained mustaches,I see a beer there must be another 40 empty ones not in the picture.


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.

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!?!
