Guns, laws, etc

So a law that says you can't carry a gun before hunting season, yet you go on to describe in detail all the guns you carry and why?
So the law should read, "every body but you cannot carry a firearm before hunting season ?"
So noone elses desire for self defense against bears matters ?

No, what I was saying is I would like someone to show me the law which states one cannot carry a gun except for hunting season. This is in response to post # 65
Quote:
You said it was out of season so that man was not a hunter he was a poacher you should have called the police/wild life agency and reported him
This person is accusing someone of carrying a gun while afield is a poacher and that they are breaking the law. This person seems to have a Hurry up call the cops and get this yahoo out of here and lock him up attitude. Post #18 clearly implies that the person is up to no good because someone is carrying a gun while it is not hunting season. In post #18, I agree the other person may have been rude or even harrasing the poster, but that is not was implied at first. It was clearly stated
Quote:
I've had a deer hunter come up to me with a gun (out of season mind you) and start threatening us about calling the cops and how he first thought the horses were deer, blah blah blah. That's probably the most dangerous time to be riding is during hunting season. Those deer hunters usually are a little drunk to start out with and carrying weapons and then you go and tick them off by riding past their hunting grounds....but I carry a knife on the trail and try to stay off private property unless I've been given permission. Luckily I live in such a small town though most of the people are nice and just stop and talk to us.
If the poster was threatened, that is one thing, and a LEO should be called, but that has nothing to do with carrying a gun except during hunting season.

But it is illegal to hunt a deer (or other) when it is not in season.. I have also heard of hunters going out and drinking a mason jar of moonshine! It's not the part of carrying a gun it was because the hunter was hunting deer when the sean was over and could have possibly be drunk... And with a gun.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I've heard of this, I've heard of that. Blah Blah, who cares what you've heard of? I've heard of bigfoot. I've heard of the loch ness monster. I've heard of santa clause. "Hearing of" something makes it no more real than anything of these things. Are there irresponsible hunters? Sure. But are there anymore irresponsible hunters than irresponsible car drivers? No way. The simple fact is this. You have no way of knowing what a person is hunting by looking at them unless you WATCH them shoot a deer. Most (if not all)states have species that can be hunted year around. It's usually best to not be too quick to judge. Hunters are just doing what they love. You ride horses, they hunt. Most states also have laws against possessing firearms while consuming alcohol. If someone is violating these laws, law enforcement should be contacted. It's a statistical fact that you are more likely to be struck by lightning than killed accidentally by a firearm. Should a person take precautions? Sure. Should people spread harmful rumors to make a point? An intellectually honest person wouldn't.

This, too, shall pass........

speaking of self defense on the trail lets discuss firearms. Many of us choose this. What models are people happy with. I am coming up empty on what I call a kit gun for myself. Seems S&W and Taurus have dropped 3" barrel lengths on any of there light weight frames.
So my criteria:
20 oz or under,
3" revolver, or 4" auto
22 magnum or larger,
Decent sights with some adjustment.
Readily available ammo.
Decent trigger.
A grip you can get ahold of,
Any suggestions ?

I have a taurus 709 slim in 9mm. The barrel is 3 inches I believe and the trigger is nice and light almost like my 1911. It has a polymer frame and (I belive) a stainless slide so it is pretty impervious to weather and it's also very light should be around or under 20 ounces. The sights are somewhat adjustable and it shoots great. I've never had a misfire or ftf with regular ammo. The ONLY time I had a FTF was when I was shooting bird shot at a bull that was brushed up in the willows. It also works really well as a concealed carry gun. Because of the width and the wieght I hardly notice when I carry it.

I would highly recommend it!

I carry a Ruger 38. I never had to use it, but it does make "bad guys" turn around to see a crazy woman point a gun at them. How do I know? ..........

I don't always carry a revolver.....

But when I do, it's a 3" S&W Model 65.

Stay well armed, my friends.
