I agree with just about everything that has been said already, what it boils down to for me is common sense. I (being a boy scout at one time in my life) Never leave unprepared. There are many times when I go out that I would never consider carrying a gun... I think of all the potentially bad situations just carrying a gun could put me in. But then again I think of the positive, a 900lb angry moose and me by myself... yeah, I think I would want to have a gun with me. Going urban caching and playing vigalante... uhhh no, I think I would stick to a MacGyver approach for urban caching. Those of us that are gun owners need to be responsible ones that care about others and let those thoughts counduct our actions.
