    Guess I am surprised that anyone thinks it is a bad idea!! Shoot your eye out;- everyone carrying is evil not to be allowed. I do not get why anyone would think that you should be lunch for animals (human or not). And why is it that the evil gun is making decisions based on the situation? I thought we became emancipated to the point that the gun no longer dictated our motives?

    I carry if I feel I should. I sometimes feel it is unnecessary, but it is not a decision that should be made by the government,, they are always on the wrong side nowadays, and they will never be there when you hope they will be.

    If I had to guess, when you need the protection, you can count on it being there within 3 hours of the belated call to the leo. If you are close enough!

    I've packed in the woods; hogs are nasty, but there are other critters that can be too. Shooting should be a basic skill; like in Switzerland.

    I've had to spray a dog once while surveying (dogs usually like me, but this one liked being nasty), and it folded him right up. End of confrontation, but I'm not afraid of one dog either. A pack is different; very dangerous. I read an article years ago about a power line crew in Georgia that had to fight off a pack of dogs with axes and chain saws. Intense.

    Hint: Take out the Alpha dog first. Then the Beta.

    I agree if someone wants to carry , that is their prerogative.
    to me this includes the 17, 18 year olds going to school,
    or sitting on the bench at the park rolling a fat one.
    freedom should not be conditional.

    However there are many out there who need a diaper after seeing a gun,
    and it will prevent you from getting some sites

    I've never metal detected in an area infested with wild hogs (although I have hunted them in Texas) or wild dogs (really??) so I can't speak to that directly. But I can say that a few of these posts make this lifetime NRA member a little.. uneasy..

    Several states have had issues with feral dogs in recent years. Those that have had problems have issued bounties on feral animals. As the economy gets worse, some people abandon their pets and they end up running with a pack. Such a pack is what I encountered in a place I have "hunted" before. I barely made it to the car with the pack chasing me.

    Yeah. I know you're contributing to the hysteria by calling them 'assault rifles'.

    Granted, a certain Walter Mitty'ish sort who owns them actually gets off on that terminology, but it was created by anti rights people as a lame scare tactic. Using their terminology legitimizes it, which is unfortunate since it's totally, totally illegitimate.

    I could never really see the need for assault-weapons. I don't know of one serious hunter that uses one for that purpose.

    Never gave it much thought !! Maybe I should be concerned about people in the woods carrying guns and feeling threaten. Not only the second amendment rights gives you the right to carry a gun but it gives you brains too. I do stay out the woods during hunting season.

    I am perplexed coin hunter, I happen on people with guns often enough,, Most are concealed carry and many times you can spot it on them. But I have never been afraid the gun was going to become self aware and hunt me down. Why does that bother you?

    And if you detect during hunting season wear orange. But I avoid woods where I have not been invited anyway. Brains kinda thing.

    So people can't be trusted to elect a good government, but people can be trusted to carry loaded weapons around 24/7? ......

    This thread makes me SO happy to live in a safe country where paranoia and violence-fantasies aren't considered virtues.

    Actually, your fantasies and paranoid thoughts of loss of control are making you think you are safe.
    I am so glad you live over there too! It is much easier to deal with people who are self reliant.

    Since you have no historic knowledge I will simply tell you that the right to protect oneself is a human right outlined in our founding documents. It is the reason you have no problems with invasions in your country.

    Surely you gents are not that near sighted. Are you trying to goad me into taking 3 minutes and find examples of heinous crimes in the great white north? Not gonna happen, because I don't care enough. As long as you are blind you should not belittle our laws.
