To a large degree I agree with Jim. when you are armed you project a bad vibe that attracts bad vibes.

lol...

I'm going to miss absurd quotes like that when the taco goes 404....

simple stuff actually. live by the gun die by the gun. Guaranteed if you carry 24-7 you stand a much higher chance of a violent death than if you don't own a firearm.... That being said there are times when they come in handy. INMOP more often they are a hinderance.

Anyone who says people shouldn't be armed on trails is nuts... should be hiking own hike, keep it shut and keep their nonsense views to themselves (and not tell others to turn the other cheek to the criminals or fight them by stone age means).

I remember that one clueless entitled PCT hiker from Germany who kept whining how bad it was that people in the States got guns (she only been in the states to partially hike PCT). She almost got raped in the shelter in WA, was saved by the group of approaching hikers. The pitiful fool still couldn't connect the dots and understand that it's the fact of most residents around PCT areas being armed was what allowed her to even hike PCT (she should try to solo "hike", say, across wild Russia...they wouldn't even find her bones then). She also thought that illegal weed growers "should not" be where they are while she can hike unarmed wherever like if they just disappear from her unarmed presence and become law-abiding....delusional snowflake. People who grew up in privileged environment often got no sense of self preservation, they always think some powerful magic nanny will save their ass and everyone around is well-meaning like their cookie-baking rich housewife neighbors.

Wow. Would rather have someone like formerclimber around when Psycho came around. At least he'd have my six. Buddy of mine saved group of training camp counselors, mostly female, from 3 meth heads. One of them was waving a gun around and my friend had pistol concealed under his jacket. To each their own

lots of us out there that are both gun handy and savvy enough to know that using your brain is much better than relying on a gun.... just think of it as all clean all free. proper route selection is key. Start by staying away from citys… with the exception of Seneca I have pretty much written off the south after the last election cycle. No point in hanging out with people that mean and stupid...

Buddy's name? Harry, Dirty? How many punks did Harry blow away that day?

Yeah, some Meth head gets the drop; I bet your pal did nothing.

My BUDDY didn't blow anyone away. he got the drop on the freak waving the gun and the dude pissed his pants. Freak was disarmed and my BUDDY was interviewed for 2 hours by Sheriff and cleared. Why so hostile? Geez

Yikes! That's hostile? I was going to make a joke (obviously 'Harry, Dirty' didn't cut it), but I backspaced over it for safety reasons. TTFN.

Really! It figures that it took some sheriffs two hours to figure out he wasn’t a meth head.
