I never used to have a pistol with me when out cutting the grass(on a zero steer) which takes an hour & 1/2.
Then if I do the neighbors its almost another hour.What would I do if I was cutting grass, and some hayshaker came peeping by and there was trouble?
I'd be on the outside looking in.

duk, it doesn't sound as if you left much room for momma.
