    Alright guys how many of you carry a concealed weapon while your out plowing. I know it one of many things on my list of things to grab on the way out the door but just wondering who else feels this way?

    That's ridiculous, or at least that's how I feel.

    I've plowed some shady apartment complexes, and never had any issues.

    If your fully insured, then what's the reason for carrying a piece.

    I've never heard of a snow plower getting held up, if someone has I'd like to hear about it.

    Besides, what would you have with you that you couldn't live without while plowing.

    Do kill me, but are you serious!!
  6. My house is full of guns (hunting) but sadly we are not allowed to carry a weapon here in Canada.

    When I lived in the states I never went anywhere without my 9mm semi-auto pistol. It was nice knowing I could legally defend myself by any means necessary... We really need Canada to adopt the American laws on gun ownership!!

    I'm legally allowed to purchase rifles, shotguns and handguns here in Canada. I'm just not allowed to carry them around with me. LOL
  7. 1) Kind of hard to make an insurance claim when your dead bud...

    2) I stopped at a store to get smokes and was welcomed with a gun in my face asking for my money... (I quit smoking, too dangerous lol )

    3) A crackhead with a gun will gladly take your wallet and money. Snow plow drivers are a great target because we often make cash when we go out...

    I was salting a shady apt complex last week and was approached by a drunk who looked very shady asking for a jump . Im in the big city so you cant trust most .
    I told him Id be with him when Im done . I just took off. Good guys finish last sometimes .
    The only thing getting jumped probably would have been me.:gunsfiring:.

    3 of the buildings we plow are in the wonderful "suburb" of NYC- Newark NJ, I wish I could find a cop to plow that route for me. It would be legal for him to carry, us regular guys can't in NJ, an it's just about impossible to get a carry permit here, unless you know a superior court judge.

    But if my guys are making cash I have problems!!!!

    If you have to carry a weapon where you plow, you need to find a new area to plow.

    Not always true . The owner of the apt complex pays well.

  16. Yup but if you ever feel like getting out for a hunt buddy let me know. I have a small trailer located on 400 acres in Havelock. We have tons of deer, bears, grouse, coyotes, timber wolves and rabbits.

    Actually I think a handgun is too light a weapon. Personally, I prefer a muzzle loader. Now only will it kill the snowman, the flash will melt half the neighborhood. :rolleyes:

    sorry to hear that you work in such dangerour areas...i guess if i were you i would also pack....actually if i lived in your area i probably wouldn't have equiptment to work with being that the keys are usually left in them.......i would be carefull going around shooting people though, your likely to go to prision if you make a slim mistake, not worth it to me...

    I don't even own a firearm. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure a very dear friend carries to church.
