Don't carry, probably never will carry. Don't want them around and don't have any use for them.
However I do know how to use them and would in a heartbeat if I felt necessary.
But I'd rather not have one and would avoid all situations where I would need one.

Shot the BB gun yesterday & today. It was a lot of fun, just gotta remember to close the correct eye. Is that strange that I naturally want to close my right eye when I'm right handed?

And if trouble came looking for you like has happened to me? What then? Call 911? The LEO's will be there in time to take a report if they show up at all.

Mine happened in an area where cell phone coverage was very poor and a long way from any city in Wyoming. Luckily I was prepared.

Right eye or left eye dominance isn't always the same as right handed or left handed. Hold your hands in front of you and make a triangle. Focus on a distant object through the triangle with both eyes open. Close both eyes and open them one at a time. If the object is still in the triangle with your left open and right eye closed, you're left eye dominant. Vice versa for the right.

Wow can you share? Or long story. Drunk guys? Escaped cons? I've been in Wyoming for a month, the only time I ever( and I mean ever!) saw a cop was in the 4 th of July parade. I was feeling very safe, except for the grizzly bears that is well anyways, glad you are safe.

Wow, I guess I'll get a gun now since your situation called for it. Sounds like you couldn't wait to use it.

Really ? This is the kind of comments that ruin threads like this. If you don't like guns, don't want guns, I get it. You probably shouldn't have one. Some of us do for various reasons. I try to stay away from "bad" areas or "situation" where I might need one. Bad guys come in all shapes & sizes, & demographics, they aren't all in urban areas. I have a former boss who broke down with car trouble several yrs ago on the way to a family reunion. I won't go into details here, but he & his family wish they had something to protect themselves with afterward. It was horrific. He now carrys & has had extensive training.

We've boondocked about 1,000 nights in all kinds of places ranging from streetside in downtown Las Vegas to miles down a dirt road deep in the national forest. We've only had one knock on our door after going to bed - that was in Dana Point, California where we had parked in a park-n-ride parking lot without knowing it. The cop was very friendly and told us of a better spot a mile down the road.

We've never felt threatened, never been robbed, never had the slightest problem.

We might carry a gun if either of us had been militarily trained to shoot people with it. But we are both softies and I doubt either of us could pull the trigger and it would end up being pulled on us instead.

Groovy, that's cool, your smart enough to know yourself well enough. I've personaly never had a problem while camping either. I have had a couple sketchy situations while on the job however, that were defused without ever having to actually draw my weapon. Thankfully

Don't ask, Don't tell is my motto in the firearms world. But my favorite piece of protection is a Glock 27 with Golden Sabres in it. It does well to protect both residences.
If I'm feeling a bit nostalgic it will be my Smith 36 with some Plus P's in it.
But for the most part I'm a Happy Camper.........

Regards,

Interesting topic. For those folks that are interested in knowing the local gun laws here is a good resource.

I haven't read all 17 pages of this thread so I am sorry if this is a repost.
