    Mr Lee I've come face to face with a mountain lion and was only armed because I was quail hunting. He turned and left and I so did I. I see bear scat all the time. You must remember they are mostly nocturnal and really don't want to deal with us as we are not on the normal menu. When I do take notice is when I see pair of bear track and one is a cub and they are going the same direction as I am.

    I do. But here in AZ I also wear it openly to the Grocery store, where a food fight may injure me! (they may start throwing CANS at me!) TTC

    I suppose if we converted our detectors shaft into a bang stick we would have to worry about forgetting it at home. Nothing like the element of surprise.

    I don't know what state you live in but I here in Nevada I carry all the time even when I'm not detecting. I always carry my .44 mag or my .357 mag when I detect and last year I'm glad I did. Was detecting an old town site in the hills and had a run in with a really pissed off black bear that was not happy that I was on his turf. one warning shot near the bears feet and he took of like a bat out of hell. So yes I do carry and Its a good Idea depending what part of the country you live in.

    Apparently there is a crazy guy at the top of a mountain near a gold mine where I live & he shoots at people with a bow & arrow, and throws rocks off the mountain if people try to come up.

    Could be a story though. lol

    For those who don't like guns or are not allowed to have them, perhaps a large pet animal could help?
    Do not limit your thinking to standard pets, although some permits may be required for Lions and such.
    Most places, even indoors, have a sign that says some animals are allowed.
    With the new politically correct words it opens up some new areas.

    I would carry in schools or colleges if it were legal in Florida. Banning responsibly armed and licences citizens from carry at schools or anywhere for that matter, gives violent criminals a free fire zone.

    Every state varies but some good coin shooting locations are off limits to firearms. Its interesting how laws based on good intentions never reduce crime.

I carry when in gold country and have for years on certain occasions I carry locally due to the fact anymore you just do not know what you will encounter, hogs, dogs, whatever else may come my way.

    I liked the Minelab equipment so much I became a dealer Three years ago, also Sunray equipment loops and probes great stuff.
    Prospecting equipment from Angus Mackirk too!! Check us out on www.swdetectors.com I also am a certified Minelab trainer and travel for them.
