Found this on B.O Craigslist...had to share.

Good news is that I truly out did myself this year with my Christmas decorations. The bad news is that I had to take him down after 2 days. I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever. Great stories. But two things made me take it down. First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by. Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn't realize it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy). By the way, she was one of many people who attempted to do that. My yard couldn't take it either. I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard. Kind of feel like I gave in to the man by taking him down but my neighbor did confirm to near miss accidents on the busy street next to my house. I think I made him too real this time. So it was fun while it lasted!

I have to wonder why the 55 year old lady didn't question the fact that the guy hanging from the gutters was completely silent.

I love it when people get all mad when they do something totally stupid.

For those that have seen the MTV series "Jackass" with Johnny Knoxville. One episode shows them driving a mini-van around a shopping plaza parking lot with a infant car seat sitting on top of the van. (with a fake kid in it).
But a stunt like that would have gotten a reaction from my Mossberg 500.

Mike...the Mossberg 500 is too indiscriminate. I'm thinking more on the lines of a FAL-FN .308 or a M-4....top of feet, knee caps, hands, elbows, shoulders...

Yea, the M-4 would work, but a Mossberg with a 3" slug REALLY makes some noise. And it causes irrepairable damage to human body joints. The 5.56mm, is designed to bounce off of hard objects, a 3" would just shatter the bone into millions of pieces.

The 5.56 will cause pain and suffering. Now, if you want to drop for good - one round-one kill - .50 center chest or a .308 to the bridge of the nose.
