Do any of you bring a gun with you on hikes? Posted on May 6, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor Do any of you bring a gun with you on hikes?
wouldn't you like to know, constable ?
>Totally not data mining bro
I carry all the guns
quirky bit of the law here is that slingshots are as illegal as non electronically ignited explosives'
but because it is worded the way it is, almost any bow, blow gun or harpoon is completely legal, even Atlatls which are way the fuck scarrier then whatever Denice the Menace shit you could do with a slingshot
But people don't do hood shit with atlatls. Logistics trump other considerations: a slingshot can hide under a hoodie and put a 20mm steelie through a person's skull. Your average javelin isn't getting close to others undetected.
>20mm steelie through a person's skull
its not an 88 man
I guarantee you that a modern bandset and a decent extension can drive a 20mm ball bearing right into your noggin's goopchute.
not through, maybe, but it will get lodged in their skull at least. those things are fuckign scary.
>whatever Dennis the Menace shit you could do with a slingshot
When you said that I literally heard "Let me show you its features" and a maniacal German sounding laugh in my head
Some slingshots are no joke. A strong one can absolutely be lethal
>this thread again
Hmm, i wonder if people take a firearm in a forum populated mostly by American outdoor-types... no point in checking if there's already a thread.
you think this only because Americans are loud and obnoxious
>Americans are loud and obnoxious
Clutch. He won't respond to that.
Couldn't even be bothered to ctrl+f could ya gay.
He's a gun fanatic. It's a miracle he remembers to breath. Searching the catalogue is far to advanced.
>claims superior intelligence
Yeah, and I almost had to use it last week.
saw a hiker carry a pistol on his side holster hiking up Guadalupe Peak once, which is weird because it's a well-established trail with plenty of foot traffic, rescue jannies everywhere, and no wild animals
In Canada, we cannot carry handguns in the woods. So no. I don't want to lug around my 22 on a motorbike since our barrels must also be super long and non collapsible
We can. Get a trappers license. Takes 300 and a day.
Wtf? Tell me more! I have a restricted PAL already. So you don't have to contact the RCMP for authorization to transport your handgun into the woods as I have to do if I want to transport a handgun from my house to the shooting range?! What limitations are there? Wouldn't you get in trouble if you had a handgun in a national park and a conservation officer came by?
Yes, I always carry, even just laying on the couch I'm still carrying.
If you open carry, you are a mouthbreathing retard, and I hope you get jumped by morons.
>open carry retard
Bro go wash your ass
I live in grizzly country and start hikes from my backyard.
I carry a 44.
Do you use hollow points or full metal jacket?
Hollow points would just piss a grizzly off.
>Hope you got some lube with that 500 for when the bear takes it from you and shoves it up your kiester
He's right though. You want hardened ammunition, it's really more important than the caliber.
For bears, penetration wins. Hollow points are for humans.
Hollow points are for things with a pulse.
I take bear spray and bear bangers to protect against wild animals, where I hike is grizzly country but funnily enough ive never actually seen a grizzly yet. I also take a slingshot with the thought that I can take out a rabbit or something if I ever see one but I havnt gotten one yet.
I would never hike without the bear spray though, its much better than a pistol when facing a charging bear.
pretty sure apex predators are very rare in the wild so you'd probably only see one from a very far distance or if you are about to be eaten.
idk man penetration works pretty good for your mom
I bring a gun with me to the bathroom. Just incase shit does not go down.
>Cops reported gunfire
>Little did they know it was just me shitting
Really Wtf with those gay sights? I seen a lot body cam cops using that shit so that tells you a lot.
>t. hasn't used a dot sight
I don't even use them playing insurgency. There's nothing wrong with iron sight.
The laws are so vague about CC...because if you happen to have a fishing pole or fishing gear ..you can have a gun with you....before even getting your CC permit.
I'm for constitutional carry in all 50...fu Puerto Rico
A pistol or hunting rifle is genuinely useful for survival.
Hunting + fire = quickly secure your basic survival
Then you can spend more time on things like shelter and survival beyond food+water
Fire to cook the meat and sterilize water.
Pistol, rifle, knife, or even a spear for hunting/fishing and defending yourself from wild animals.
Carbs, vitamins, and minerals from foraging and wild gardening while hunting/gathering.
Animal hide to make clothing/beds/shelter if you really need to.
>defending yourself from wild animals
And random criminals and feral schizos if you are unlucky enough to run into one. Samuel Colt was the great equalizer.
Are you familiar with the phrase "give me a knife and a bag of salt and I can survive in the wilderness"?
who needs gun when you have shovel
I carry a bear gun and in summer I keep a 22 pistol on my four wheeler so I can shoot my chicken dinner if I feel like it.
Glawk 20 with Buffalo Bore. I hope beyond hope that I'll never have to use it but at the same time I'm not about to become a martyr to some bull moose's blue balls.
Yeah I love carrying my gun. Think about it, all our ancestors until 100yrs ago carried weapons. Knifes, spears, swords, clubs, bows, etc etc. There's something just engrained on us about packing heat.
100 years ago? Like 50 years ago gun safety was still being taught in a lot of grade schools in 'merica.
Well I'm not merican. And even in murica carrying a gun fell out of fashion after the 30s and only became common again in the 90-00s.
FDR and the administrative state buckbroke this country so hard
Not only is it every American's God-given RIGHT to carry a gun, it is every American's patriotic DUTY to carry a gun.
I don't carry a gun but we don't need a permit to carry down here anymore as of this year.
Rednecks will carry them on hunting trips though because that's pretty normal, or just to go legally practice shooting out in the woods on public and private lands.
I got attacked by a bobcat when I was 19 so I've always carried a firearm outdoors since then.
bro bobcats weigh like 20 pounds
that’s like saying you were attacked by a dachshund lol
