Now there’s a sketchy idea

Depends if it’s a motorized vehicle, and that depends on the area and engine size, the officer enforcing

I would say a guy is asking for a lot of headaches

I would err on the side of caution and say that if it has a motor it could probably be considered motorized.
“Under no pretext should arms and ammunition be surrendered; any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated, by force if necessary.”

If you are not willing to die for freedom then take the word out of your vocabulary.

Did a few trips with an old cowboy I know( some on here know him), he would raise a colt or two to be able to shoot off the back. We went into a drainage one year, I bailed off my horse to take a shot at a pretty good buck. I was scrambling around for a rest, he said “use the d,;m horse!” Well , I did, I fired a round right by his left ear, buck down, horse gone!😆 I killed that buck, but it took the two of us 4 days to find the horse!😆. I told him, why the hell would you tell me to shoot off of a “flighty horse”, he said, “ you shot off the wrong end”😆😆😆

RIP…….my friend. Some on here know him.

Last name start with a C @bigmacc
last name began with an F, you knew of him bone👍 I’ve told you a few stories involving him.

I was 18, I asked the outfitter I was working for if I could shoot off one of his horses. He said, “Yeah. Once!”

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
