    Modern Marvels Stats on Chainsaw deaths!

    Modern Marvels on the History Channel tonight...Stated "Chainsaws cause 40,000 injuries/deaths in the United States each year.". What say ye? Ban chainsaws? Require Dealers and Operators to be licensed, fingerprinted, trained and retrained each year? Wait, don't forget the NCIS check...

    I seriously think all assault chainsaws need banned and also there must be a 16" chain bar limit. Those high capacity saws are lethal.

    Oh and - no way should anyone be permitted to buy more than one a month.

    And toy chainsaws should require orange on the end of the bar. Ownership of chainsaw, gas and hockey mask should also be restricted.

    CCC = Concealed Chainsaw Carry...

    SmartCarry in not recommended for CCC...

    Do not bring your chainsaw to NY, NJ, IL, or Washington D.C...you WILL be arrested...

    In every state where chainsaws have been banned...killer trees are continuing to grow...there's no stopping them!

    Practice with your chainsaw is important, including weak hand starts...

    Alcohol and chainsaws do not mix...

    Stay armed...stay safe!

    Anyone know where I can get an IWB holster for a 14" Poulan with 27" left hand rope start? I am also looking for an ankle carry for a 10" craftsman electric. Thanx for your replies in advance.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    It's important to have the correct carry method and presentation technique. I recommend the instructional DVD below:



    Just remember: When chainsaws are outlawed, only outlaws will have chainsaws.

    Thumbs down Ban Chain Saws

    A chain saw hurts a lot more then being shot. Don't carry inside waist band in the frount. Watch out on fast draws and keep your finger off the trigger.

    i dont think allowing concealed carry of chainsaws is sucha good idea.

    im rather certain that if we allowed anyone to go carrying around a chainsaw, there'd be no trees left within a matter of weeks...
