    Maybe he like your after shave or something. I am surprised that the gator is still alive.

    Well, I've lived in gator country in Texas most of my life and have never been interested in gator "hunting". So, I know nothing of the laws that govern such. I've been told if you own land on a creek or bayou, you can get permits and hunt the entire bayou. That's what my hunting buddy told me. No bayous around here, it's all high ground which is a good thing when something like hurricane Harvey hits and dumps 30 inches on you in less that 2 days. I sat on the back porch and shot water moccasins with a 10/22. Great sport!

    I didn't make a habit of teal hunting in the Guadalupe Delta. It's too warm and all the gators haven't holed up for the winter. That place is FULL of gators. You can shine your light out over buffalo lake and see lots of eyes staring at you. You can tell the big ones by the space between their eyes. The lake is shallow and you can wade across it...at your own risk. I'm surprised over the last 3 decades since Parks and Wildlife and ducks unlimited developed the place that no one has tangled with one. I peppered one once with number 4 steel. He was intent upon eating one of my decoys. . Several dogs have become gator food. I will NOT take Molly the Wonder Dog out there even though she loves hunting the place. I used to take her after the regular season started and the gators were in hibernation or whatever they do. I will NOT feed MY dog to the gators! I bought a canoe from Bass Pro to get across that lake and used it before I got sick and couldn't hunt anymore.

    I picked up a NIB S&W .40VE at a gun show for $275 with a $50 mail in rebate years ago. I got it to use while kayak fishing. If it got lost or damaged it won't hurt my feelings or wallet. Glock sued S&W over design and won an out of court settlement. Like $$5 a unit sold. Its said to shoot underwater. I got it for gators like this guy. I'll stand my ground or GPS location.

    If memory serves, the Sdve is the first version they put on the market to compete with GLOCK. And, yep, they pretty much copied the GLOCK design and ended up having to pay royalties. Sad as they had had the M&P line on the market for years (as revolvers) and their M&P auto line is one of the best selling models on the market.

    Talked to someone from fish and wildlife last night, they wanted to know exactly where I saw the gator and said next time I should report an incident like that to them immediately. Basically said the gator was most likely fed by people multiple times and now associates people with food and its aggressive behavior makes it dangerous. He was going to go out there today and see if it is still around.

    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.
