And I thought I was a bit excessive having 3 chainsaws...

this chainsaw plus revolver robbery may have been a random thing, or someone looking to do further damage in community. hope our police put a priority on this one; seems like something bad could result from use of tools and gun stolen?

What a coincidence! I just happen to have seven chainsaws and a revolver I'd like to sell for a good price. Anyone interested?
