You hit the 300th post, jfox8541!

fleetmack,

The B&B looks great. If its a problem to hold a blastfest there, that's understandable. Maybe we just need to locate one of those "everyone's always gone shootin up that gulch" places for the blastfest. I think there is a place in Pike National Forest, down US 285 where shooting is tolerated...but I'm not sure of its exact location.

I personally have hiked with many different women and not a single one has ever asked if I had a gun let alone ever discussed wishing we had one for protection. This includes many nights camping in many different places around the state. Of all the people I have ever hiked with not a single person has ever carried or thought about carrying a gun on a hike.

Sigh..........

Oh for the good old days when I climbed 14,000 ft. peaks without a cell phone, a pistol on my hip, my Border Collie running free & unleashed, and never seeing another person.......

Oh well, can still do it on 13ers.......except for the Border Collie...He's been long gone for about ten years now....

From a previous discussion this summer, our own well known member, Roozers42, reveals at least someone comforted by the presence of a firearm:

Pardon Me...Did I say that was suppose to prove anything? Don't believe I mentioned anything about banning guns. Take two asprin and call your doctor in the morning!
I usually take 4 asprin and a shot of valium. I have several doctors with me here at the facility, so no need to worry. Seriously though, I don't know why you would post that about those children being killed by guns to a thread about gun control if you weren't trying to make a point with it, that's all.

Sure I'll hike with ya!. But can you handle 3 girls at one time? Or maybe I should ask myself if I could handle the 3 of you ...MtGirl carries a gun...USAKeller has pleaded the 5th, and Talus well you pack it all!

gander4,

USAKeller has access to my guns, but I'll get her one if she wants one of her own. I'll get a pic on a future hike.

sunshine1,

Thanks for stepping up! I'm sure you could handle hiking with the Monkey. I'm always willing to take a mid-westerner shootin!


Oh, here is a nice article about the need to arm up for natural disasters!
