    John, I too, am a fan of non-violent hunts. But it seems not everyone shares that ideal. My 1911 45 acp never leaves my side because there are a growing number of cretans out there that don't intend to treat you politely.

    So many yards, so little time!

    Good job! Glad you didn't become a statistic. I usually carry a Taurus Judge or a sub-compact 9mm depending on how concealed I need to be. There are situations where some knucklehead could close the distance on you and thats when its good to have a Lesche in hand.

    Glad you are OK John. During my early years of detecting, I hunted alone in very remote areas and that's why I rarely ever use headphones today. HH, Quindy.
    Everyone will make a good find on occasion. The challenge is to find CW relics consistently.

    Yesterday I was in an old ballfield in the hood here in KC. I had a few young guys check me out, but, I am a big guy and I use a big Ontario entry tool for a digger. I have Missouri CCW but right now do not own anything other than big frame guns so it is just too big. I also have a one hand opening CRKT tanto blade clipped to my pocket. I can filet a deer with that blade so I am going to guess I could do some real damage on a lowlife if I had to.

    Tha ballfield was apparently where the hookers take their johns, there were freakin condoms everywhere there, arrrgh

    were you being kind and hit him with the "flat"of the shovel or being hard core and used the the edge ? if used correctly --the edge of a digging shovel is like a ax --the russian special forces had a sharpened edge to their "entrenching tools" which made getting hit with them like getting hit by an ax -it would split the persons skull like a ripe melon.

    AWESOME! good for you! People are crazy. When you see a situation is headed south, take charge immediately! And if you have a predator, by all means, swing for the fence, T-Ball style!

    Good job. Never let anyone invade your personal space. Be carefull, people will usually take your kindness for weakness. Pepper spray is good, a knife, shovel are all good to defend your self. Glad your o.k.
    Life is not the way it's supposed to be; It's the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference. Do your best let God do the rest.

    Glad you're okay bud. He definitely had it coming. That's why I wish IL would finally pass the CC law! All the good parks unfortunately are in the ghettos.

    My home modified digging shovel doubles as my walking stick.
    People ask about it and that I made it my self. Boxed and drilled. Plenty of right angles to.
    It keeps undesirables at a reasonable distance.
    When detecting I have my Rambo digger at my side.
    I had this drunken alien in my face one time wanting to try out my detector.
    Like I was going to just hand it over to him.
    I think that walking stick will chop off your foot if not care-full.

    Good for you! I'm glad you were not hurt. I generally wear a hat or hoodie since my blonde hair is like a siren, and I always detect with my 2 friends, Smith & Wesson. Breezie

    Thank God for the second amendment. It really is an equalizer for law abiding citizens against scum of the Earth. I carry my .22 S&W on my hip mainly for snakes but, it will sure send someone to the promised land if need be. A shovel makes for a good improvised weapon, too. I'm glad you were able to repel this attack, brother. God bless.

    I sharpen the edges of my shovel, and it takes out some serious brush when I'm a mind to.
