    I married a Frenchwoman. Fortunately, I resisted the temptation to engage in frequent, neurotic tantrums.

    Sorry to get off topic. If I lived near the southern border I can see the temptation keep a long gun in the car, but there would be big concern about theft. Now if noone would mind if I brought it with me into the dentist or Mall or whatever, it'd be a definite winner.

    Any long gun carried in the car in Washington State has to be empty. While near the border I only carry my pistol on a regular basis.

    Cupcake...my bad!

    I was thinking, for some reason, that you were in the U.P., . How did I do that? (I'm in my 60's...it must be 'sometimers', )

    If I'm down that way, yeah. I do some hiking down south of Tucson when its not 140 degrees outside. But as a general rule, if I head into the desert anywhere around or south of Phoenix I carry the Mossberg with my CCW. Some people think I'm paranoid or nuts for 'lugging the extra pounds.' I'd rather be nuts than dead. Sheriff's Office closed their shop in Wickenburg and I spend a LOT of time out in that area (1-2 weekends a month for about 8 months of the year). Drug-related crime has gone through the roof in Aguila and the surrounding area. I stick to the deserts but that doesn't mean some jerk tripping on meth or whatever won't stumble onto me.

    Besides, you head out into some areas and a shotgun makes a handy signal device when the wind won't carry your voice.

    I carry everything I can get away with. The Dallas County border line is way to close for comfort.

    The first rule of gunfighting should be to know when the gunfight starts - being the last one to get the news certainly won't put the odds in your favor.
