    Some people are nuts. Especially the people who say a windshield costs $2500

    Windshield repair, seat or back window since bullet didn't magically stop at the windshield and hazmat team to clean the poo/pee out of the upholstery. So $2500 sounds about right. :laughing:

    Would have been cute if the plow guy had a gun too and shot him... then who's in trouble?

    Not that long ago, heard about a case (I believe it was here in Canada somewhere) where some kids tried firebombing a guys house. He was awake and able to put out the fire before it spread, then fired a few shots into the air to scare them away. When he called the cops to report the attempted arson, he was arrested for (I think it was) discharging a weapon within city limits... talk about stupidity.

    Considering its a jcb the windshield probably is 2500 after installation. Not like you can call safelite and have them come replace it.

    Have you ever bought glass/doors/windshields for a backhoe?

    It said windshield in the report. Also It did not say if it was a BB gun or .357. One can never assume.

    Cat payloader 938 was around 1500 and that glass was flat. Thats curved and as stated its a JCB so 2500 is not out of the question.

    You deal with out of control clients.....if this was you, and you took the bullet, you'd be plowing snow in two days!

    You may want to listen to these guys beanz, JCB parts are far from cheap. I have a 212SU (minus the hoe) and nothing is cheap on them. Parts come from England.

    Apparently the nuts are the ones who don't know what they're talking about.

    Anyways, had this guy come at me with a gun, whether I was in a JCB or truck, he would not have been able to ever hold a gun again.

    I was channel-surfing the other night, and ran across HLN just in time to hear Nancy Grace saying to a defense attorney something about "Why do you keep saying he had a license to carry a concealed weapon? Any nut off the street can get one of those." So the 39-y/o moron in the original story just contributed to all the law-abiding CHL holders being painted with that brush. :mad:
    That guy who shot at the backhoe shouldn't be allowed to have sharp objects or matches, either.

    Cases like that will be remembered by mainstream media and politicians, while ones like the mom in Detroit will be ignored.
