Problem: large pieces of ice may fall off the roof and injure or even kill people.

Solution: knock them off before they can fall unexpectedly.

Problem: you are too old to climb up a ladder and hit them.

Solution: some sort of device that projects force at a distance.

Problem: too old and frail to swing pole or other long object around.

Solution: instead of mechanical energy, utilize chemical energy to project the force.

I can see the logic he followed. A c02 powered pellet gun might have been a better solution, but if he didn't have one, the .22 works. Of course, as he's in the middle of a city it's still a bad idea because of ricochets. So they asked him to stop, and he did. Case closed. The only way it could work out better is if the cop volunteered to get on a ladder and knock the ice off for the old guy. That would be some protecting and serving.

Telling Sen. Feinstein to exercise more gun control?  That's insanity!  :D

kobrakai: Tr0mBoNe: Seems reasonable to me but I grew up on a farm.

Really? The likelihood that you're going to shoot holes in your eave and roof seems reasonable? Hmm. Must be some stupid farmer thing.


I aim better than you.

If you use the term 'likelihood' with guns, put it down. Know where your bullets are going and why or don't pick up a weapon.

Stand next to the house, shoot out, and aim low.
