Many years ago, I was attacked by a neighbor’s dog while mowing my back yard. Beat him off with my belt, but... Ever since then I have faithfully carried while doing any outside work on my property. This proved fortuitous last month when I was suddenly confronted by a rabid raccoon who stared at me with evil intent whilst emitting a most peculiar and vicious snarl. I took him out with three quick rounds to the head. Just wondering who else carries around their house?
