Does anyone pack a hand gun while riding? I am about to take a cross country bike/camping trip alone and not sure I want to travel unarmed. Tips? ideas? Cautions? (Preferably from experience)
Yea submitted for the concealed weapons lic and from what I've read most states are reciprical. Just trying to find other real life experiences with this type of activity.wehrd1 said:hmmm.... be licensed to carry a concealed weapon would be MY suggestion just in case you have to need to USE it...then YOUR azz ain't in a sling... don't those laws vary from state to state?
The second amendment adresses militias, and protects the right to carry weapons for that purpose, not concealed carry of pocket peashooters.Sidewalk said:On another level, if we don't carry our firearms around, the second amendment becomes useless and void. I might be able to have a gun in my home, but often I'm not in my home.
and if you don't have one your chances of winning go from 50/50 to 0%.CycleBiker said:The risk with most guns is firstly that on on average you only have a 50/50 chance of being fastest on the draw, and secondly if any police or security arrive you tend to get shot at unless you drop the gun real fast.
BS. If law enforcement show up and you are still firing or pointing the firearm at them, you risk getting shot. If you have any common sense, follow commands, and be be smart, no police or security will "tend to shoot you"and secondly if any police or security arrive you tend to get shot at unless you drop the gun real fast
