OK-so perhaps I need to make my sons happy and get a pistol permit this winter.....altho, I am not sure how much good it will do in NY-I know they know the laws on open carry, I will have to ask. In Va-many folks carry, including them. So much so that they actually have "open carry breakfasts".....actually, near Sterling, as I recall......Hmmm.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

Haha all I need to do is pass a background test and I can open carry. So a leg holster and revolver are on my Christmas list :)

Yeah, me too - and I don't worry about them much at all

I wonder if anyone has ever compared up the number of horses injured or killed by humans "having fun" to the number attacked by mountain lions (or wolves, bears, etc)? Bet the humans are a way bigger problem.

Are we counting the wild horses that no one accounts for?
