    Howdy! from Spokane Washington

    Hi all. NRA life member here. I was nicknamed "Hammerdog" by a professional lady mountain bike racer years ago. Long story. Speaking of that , has anybody here heard of the Markleeville Death Ride? I used to ride it yearly. 128 miles of mountains in one day. It takes place in South Lake Tahoe, and is very aptly named... I used to ride a bicycle (a lot)... not so much these days: Got a wife and the perpetual honey do list now... Shortly after we moved up here from Silly-Con Valley, Kalifornia, I went over to the local shooting range up here. I mentioned that I'm from California, and he said, "WELL!!! Welcome to AMERICA!!!" He couldn't have said it better. Back in 2002 I learned that there were something like a whopping ~248 carry permits in all of Silicon Valley (+ one for Diane Feinstein of course! ). That's not the case in this little "overgrown farm town"! There are tens of thousands who carry. Everywhere. Good. "An Armed society is a polite society." I like that motto.
    Anyway, I am wondering what is a good defensive load for the Charter Arms .44 Bulldog... Thanks in advance. Glad to be a member of this forum. Seems like good people. later, Hammerdog.

    Welcome from WV! Glad to hear that you successfully escaped the Feinstein Wonderland.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    "Overgrown farm town"? As a former Spokanite I resent that, but you're right, armed citizens are everywhere. Back in my time there the SPD had a "shoot first, sort them out second" policy, and the BGs (that survived) didn't test those waters. It's the only place outside of Alaska where I felt comfortable OC'ing.

    Lived up in the Shadle Park area. Miss it at times. I've heard the drugs and meth labs have gotten bad there. A shame, nice place to raise a family--once upon a time. Welcome!
