At least he meant well...

So, if you think that people are driving too fast down the road in front of your double-wide, what do you do?

Well, obviously you grab your beer in one hand and your pistol (complete with filed-off serial number) in the other and wander out into traffic, waving the pistol around and yelling at those darn kids to slow down...
Drivers told police that the man was in the road with a gun in one hand and a beer in the other, and at one point, the suspect sat in the road with the weapon in his lap.
And then you go to jail.

See, kids? See what happens when you forget the part about "Here, hold mah beer"?

What an idiot. Everyone knows that a Charter Arms .22 isn't enough gun to slow traffic. You need at least a .32.

I'm driving a two-ton weapon. I see a nut in the road brandishing a gun at me, I see a target. Never mind jail.

Geez. What a winner that guy is.

Not.

Man, this is a tough call.

One one hand, I approve of slowing traffic, telling kids to get off the lawn, edging the driveway and keeping all in order in general.

However, I do not approve of the drunkeness, waving gun about and obvious lack of flossing.

What's a spiessburger to do?

Hold on-- you missed one of the best quotes:

"The other men said when Perry returned to the trailer, they asked him if his gun was loaded. Perry responded by firing multiple gunshots into the deck area toward a nearby gas station."

"Awesometown"

No, not in Awesometown, but in Americus.

Note to self: Do not ask a drunk if his gun is loaded.

He will prolly demonstrate its condition.

Surely by now everyone knows that the proper weapon with which to admonish the youth to vacate one's lawn is an M1 in .30-06.

I always want to know when stuff like this actually starts to seem like a good idea?

About beer #10.

Joe in PNG said...

Aww, come on Tam, everyone knows that any drunken lout making a public nuisance of himself has only had two beers, max!

Dang, it's too early up in Hoosierdale for it to be so cold that a person's brain has already frozen solid--especially allowing for the antifreeze...

And here I thought that bucks looking to score 72 virgin does were the only reason to slow down while driving 25 North.

Deer are Islamist? You know, that does make a lot of sense...

1. It's 77F and sunny.

2. You assume there is a brain to freeze.

Here in the backwoods of Minnesota we would never do anything that silly....
Without the proper lead in of course..
Which is..

"Here, hold my beer, I wanna try something."

Followed by "ufda, man did that hurt?"

And of course we would be using Granpas thurty-thurty. Which has kilt more deer illegally then legally!!
No stinking .22!!

Firehand said...

Tam, at that point I'm afraid handing the beer off wouldn't do much good...

Montie said...

The thought (slow down those damned speeders)was good, the execution (stand in roadway brandishing pistol and beer), not so much.

But, the important part of the story is his use of a Charter Arms Explorer pistol (which contain most of the shooty parts of the AR-7 survival rifle). Can't say when I last saw one of those in person.

Kristopher said...

Montie: I think most of those AR-7s got turned in to Brady-Bunch gun buys for useful things like groceries or fashion jeans vouchers at Target.

I bought one ( the rifle ) when I was a kid ... never could get the damned thing to work right. Magazine was crap, as was the replacement mag I spent too much money on.
