Is Pratt an Amish name?
If you aren’t sure what a handgun looks like, there is a picture of one in the article.
Looked like a Glock sub-compact, maybe a 26.
I bet he never tries that again.
Tough old guy - they had the drop on him and he still got them albeit not without a cost.
Still... ‘you should see the other guy’.
Sweet! I love a good Pratt fall.
Hazard, KY? Maybe a couple of good ol’ boys driving the General Lee will get to the accomplice before the cops do.
Given Roscoe and Cletus’s track record. I reckon you’re right!
Hazard was a rough town in the 30’s when my grandfather patrolled
there as a KY state trooper. It’s still a rough place....most of appalachian
towns can be tough and dangerous.
I have that Model, and yes it looks identical. However, this looks like an odd color stock photo of some sort. My guess is the author just pulled this one out of his keester.
Certainly not Amish....if so, you’d have heard something similar to the famous Neal Boortz “Boo Got Shot” dialogue.
That’s an almost unbelievable look at meth culture
If he would have just given them his wallet and not pulled out his gun and shot them he wouldn’t have got shot - the mind of a deranged liberal. Yeah tell that to my buddy whose family was held at gunpoint during a home invasion by 2 black thugs and later driven by one of them to a local ATM to dump out all their money and then would have probably been shot and dumped somewhere and the family executed. He knew what was up and jumped out of the vehicle and saved himself and his family. He ended up crushing part of his face and has never looked the same all because of those thugs.
I seriously doubt he was anything more than a drugged up white boy (man). This is Hazard Co., KY. Sort of like the Hatfields and McCoys.
Those comments look like the start of a script for a reality show.
In fact, aren’t these people on TV already?
Nothing good happens in a trailer park after midnight...er after 10 pm. I should know... I lived in a trailer park for almost twenty-five years.
Justified returns to FX channel next week I think....... great TV. SE Kentucky theme
