    How about the mailman? Dogs and thugs are after this poor guy.

    In urban areas, they walk their route and carry checks and all sorts of things the BG's would like to get a hold of.

    Not sure how a carry weapon would save them from the waves though. That was my favorite show ever btw, I watched it every week without fail and for me that is very rare.

    If I was a valet driver I would pack a gun, all those expensive cars...

    have the greatest need for a concealed carry weapon?

    Why do you think they need to be armed? Are the fish and trees fighting back?

    Occupation of a seat in the Congress or Senate is fairly dangerous. Can't be too careful when sittin' in that thang, as it can turn a rational, thinking person into a mindless, tyrannical spender of other people's money and usurper of other people's rights.

    I laughed for a second when I saw your comment and thought "TRUE." But then I thought about the dangers loggers face from enviromental whackos who like to drive spikes into trees in the HOPE that when a chainsaw hits the spike, the logger will be killed. Some of those ALF guys have done even worse. What about crime?

    Crime stats are even worse in our parks and outdoor recreation areas than for some large cities. Also, help is usually a lot further away and less likely to find the victim even if there is close proximity because there are no street addresses in the woods. This goes for Hikers and campers too. I don't relinquish responsibility for my own defense when I go on vacation. Nobody should.

    High seas? How about the issue of piracy? Not seen Johnny Depp? Check this out: http://www.icc-ccs.org/prc/piracyreport.php It IS a very real issue.

    Ya know, I forgot one of my past jobs... Narcotics delivery. How do you think the drugs get to the pharmacy? A guy drives them in sealed plastic boxes and walks them in the front door.
    Then there is the retired guy that takes them from the pharmacy to the end user if the store has a delivery service.

    I had some close calls, I've done both ends of the transporting. Its part of the family business.
    I did this in Baltimore, D.C. and some other towns in the west. I carried a 1911 while doing it.

    I don't know what this has to do with the thread really, but the tree huggers spike the trees so the wood won't make decent lumber, therefore the loggers won't cut it. Their intent is to destroy the economic value of the wood and save the tree, not kill the logger. They often inform the forestry companies of the spikings and mark the trees to make themselves feel better and avoid hurting people.

    Never the less, it is still idiocy and a form of terrorism.

    I cast my vote for hooker as the most dangerous job.
