I am not sure I'd wheel with a guy who has a loaded gun bouncing around in his Jeep.

:laughing:

That thing could go off and kill me, my children, and my children's unborn children, my dog, my passenger, my radiator, a squirrel, my windshield, ect. I mean come on guys, if we aren't going to have a beer with lunch there is no way that a weapon should be allowed either.

What if I say you took a stupid line and you drank too much Mountain Dew and you shoot me over it?

NO WAY. No guns on the trail. Guns are dangerous. If I see someone carrying a gun I will make sure that I don't jeep with them.

But seriously I always carry, lots of meth heads in the desert

Often but not always where legal. Its not legal everywhere around here and in MD no loaded guns (or even loaded magazines kept out of the gun) in a car without the too damn difficult to get concealed permit. That is why MD is referred to as The People Rupublic of Maryland.

Almost always have a shotgun, rifle or 22 in the Jeep though, even if unloaded.

I'm so glad that I left that God forsaken state back in 1985 and moved South.

Are there really that many crazed tweakers out in the wild where you guys wheel?

Are they like zombies? Come up to your car looking for peanuts?
In Johnson Valley the tweekers sometimes come thru camp while everyone is on the trail looking for stuff that was left out. They also come by and ask to go thru your trash looking for cans.

Yup, I run into at least one a year in the forest. Not personally but I have heard several tales of gettin shot at, etc...

I prefer to have the option of returning fire. ;)

Damn...that is wild! I didn't think of something like this happening.

Everyone in Texas is liable to shoot you so I think they must steer somewhat clear. :laughing:

I always carry, regardless of whether on trails or camping. When we go camping, I also bring along my Mossberg 590 loaded with 00 buck shot. If we're hiking on a trail, I open-carry my Sig 229 and lock up the shotgun in the Jeep. When on the trail in the Jeep, I keep the 229 in the center console or the door pocket if the doors are on.

I don't like sharing my peanuts with zombies.

I have to bring my gun with me. My arm gets tired thowing rocks at all the empty beer cans. Plus, it's much more fun to shoot at them.
