    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. :supergrin:

    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. :wavey:

    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? :upeyes:

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

    It's probably because you're one of those vicious baby killing Marines! Just think of all the cute cuddly bunnies you could of provided homes for with all that grass you cut. You murderer!

    Semper Fi devil.


    You should photoshop it into some strait grain alcohol... and add a hand with it's finger in the trigger guard! OMG

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

    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.:tequila::tequila:

    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. :embarassed:
