Default My Friend Jimmy

friend Jimmy just had what he always calls "Bob Deals". He once said he could make a good living just following me with a camera. Now it was his time to do something dumb
Seems during the snow storm his metal carport roof had a heavy load of snow and slush and would not drain off. He got the bright idea to take his 20 gauge and shoot a drain hole in the metal roof. When he pulled the trigger the roof collapsed and knocked him out cold. His wife finally managed to drag him out from the wreckage of the carport. He is pretty stove up. Carport is still down on his tractor which has serious sheet metal damage. The muffler is sticking thru the roof metal. I think it is something in the water here that causes this

I don't mean to be rude but I'd sure like to see a picture of that carport. He should have known that a 22 was the way to go, it's way more adjustable.

Pics of the carport, him under the carport or a video of him actually shooting it needs to be posted.

I am calling BS on this.

Sounds a little to far fetched to me.

Naw, I believe it. I had a friend who used a .45 to punch holes in his burn barrel. Too lazy to get a drill and bit I guess.

I see nothing wrong with his choice of tool for that particular job! Lazy maybe, but certainly more fun!

I demand pictures of this. You can't tell a story like that and not have pictures.
