    Wasp spray works better than mace, and if I'm not mistaken LA is a stand you're ground state. All else fails, barrow a strangers phone and call the police and report a shooting there, that should buy ya a little time ��

    NEVER LIE! Report a shooting ONLY if there is a shooting. Police does prioritize calls so if you “fake” a priority someone else’s life may be on the line because of it. ...and that would not be cool.

You could go in the early morning hours and get mugged or it could be broad daylight. So sorry to say thereís really no good time. As metal detectorists we try to stay away from crowds but in bad parts of town you want to have numbers. Typically most suspects wonít steal from you when there is a group of people around you but in the rare case their on drugs it donít matter if sheriff Joe is standing there either
    They like shooting in crowds as well in New Orleans. I was born and raised there but live a hour away across Lake Ponchatrain Causeway Bridge with is the longest over a full body of water in America, 2nd in the world at 24 miles long. Too much water for the thugs to cross.Click image for larger version.

    Most parks in crappy parts of town tend to be infested with trash. At least thats been my experience...and those bottle caps that sing up near the silver range can drive you mad.

    I gotcha is was all white from 1910 to 1960ís. Itís the silver bug thatís calling me. Iíll square up no problem and stand my ground, but itís a lot of problems that I might be asking for plus the Trump sticker on the truck doesnít help. Hehe

    Go with a small group or go elsewhere. It's not worth it. Unless the group you go with brings a M1A1 Abrams battle tank.

    90 percent of my hunting is in bad areas all over Los Angeles county which is everywhere in LA county I carry Pepper Spray all the time and I wear a bright yellow construction vest while hunting. Everytime I kneel down to dig, before I dig I look around me in all directions and keep looking as I am digging, Its unfortunate but its what I have to do.
    Go detect the park, just keep an eye out and do it really early in the morning or on major holidays when nobody is around.

    You dont have to believe what the Media says, Its opinion, not fact. You dont have to accept what Hollywood pushes on you. You dont have to believe what any Politician says. Politicians are self servants, not public servants.

    Truth1253, I do NOT go into Baltimore City to hunt. Did last year a couple times and caught a glimpse of younguns' giving me the look over and said enough of this. Lots of farm land up here still with STUFF on it. All kinds of stuff. Even good stuff. And no you need a tank, not that little toy.
