    I'm sure more laws are the answer.

    He had to know the mower was going to blow apart. Did he think the shrapnel would magically fly away from him?

    People that pull sh!t like this do not help our cause. I guess he's been thoroughly punished, but his story is only going to further steel the resolve the anti-gun crowd already has against us. It would be really nice if gun owners - all gun owners - would make some smarter choices. I get tired of having my rights compromised because of the actions of a handful of dumba$$ morons :mad:

    Ok, this guy was no shooter and not familiar with guns if he could only hit a lawnmower at 25 yards...:rolleyes:

    If you watch the video he takes like 10 shots to hit it after he moves closer. Has full Oper8er gear on as well

    video (copy and paste) since you see a bit of blood splatter on the camera at the end. I did not want it to play automatically. this longer video it seems like he got off most of the mag before he got close enough to hit it

    If that lawnmower was throwing rocks at him, he probably would have been knocked unconscious before he got close enough to hit it...

    BGC don't check to see if your a moron or not unfortunately, then they might be a bit useful.

    If I was to do something stupid I would not broadcast it.
    So you all know I have never done anything stupid.
    And I will not let you talk to my wife.
