Safety In The Desert

Other than with firearms…!

15-07-31-123

And I know folks who have worn flip-flops while shooting and hiking!!

This makes BOOTS seem like a minimum!

The lesson here is wear proper protection in the desert (or wherever there are snakes), and (of course) carry an appropriate firearm!

Once bitten twice shy?  HELL, once bitten always broke!  (assuming one survives)

  1. Boots is right! 🙂 Cheap insurance at $100… sigh

  2. Dogs found one in my backyard a few days ago. Lived here for 10 years and never had one before!
    Luckily, the dogs weren’t bit, how I don’t know since they were nearly on top of the damn thing. The closest shovel took care of the invader once I got the boneheads back in the house.

  3. Okay, why? Does the insurer consider it a preventable injury? Or the result of carelessness or recklessly dangerous behavior? Inquiring minds want to know.
    Boots are a good idea (I wear them), but they didn’t help the chick in True Grit.

  4. And that would be why taking care of brush in certain areas of my property waits until it gets cold. And I wear boots anyway.
