    Well I have been wrong before . . . but I tell ya I still think those spots would be open . . . or just do what I sometimes do . . . pick a road off the Golden Road, drive up in as far as you want/can and then pitch a tent off the beaten path.

    If you are determined to use a campsite that is full you could always act like the state Natural Resources Defense Council and tell them that the area has been quarenteened because of contamination of some sort. Not that I would know if that worked , but it could

    Don't let Jeff Cooper hear you say that! 1911 all the way--that tiny .35 is for sissys! (Man, I miss my old Series '70 Gold Cup!).

    well you know what they say about the old dogs with attitudes....
    who said anything about a .35? Rick and I just bought a couple of .40's (and i've got a hi-point 9mm comp, and carbine) admit it... they're good stuff!

    Well, it IS a John Browing design, so it's not all bad ;-)

    A .40 still isn't a .45, but I will admit to carrying my snubby .38 much more often than my .45 back in the day.

    Well... if I had to choose... I'd rather have a BAR...

    Nothing wrong with a snub, that's just about all i carry (because it's too hot to wear the clothing to conceal anything else!)

    BAR is fun--I had, IIRC an H&R manufactured one. They only had a 20 rd. mag, though, and was pretty heavy w/carry handle and bipod. Expensive to feed, too--ought six was a lot tougher to get good deals on than 7.62 Nato. One of our associates made a BAR-K (Bark--get it?) by cutting a BAR down to about a 10" barrel--it did BARK, too--and the muzzle blast was quite a site. Machine guns are a more expensive hobby than Jeeps!
