    Finally resolved the Posting Problem

    I had registered last week as "gettingold" but was permanently in monitor mode and couldn't post. It turned out that the e-mail domain I'd used was in a black hole list.

    So now I'm "GettingOld2".

    I've been reading the boards. Learned some things.

    A while back, I had an incident hiking with my wife. Long story short - we ended up back to back fending off two Dobermans and a Pittbull with our wooden staffs while they circled, snarled, snapped, and lunged for the 30 seconds it took for the owners to catch up and physically pull them off.

    My wife still feels that "all's well that ends well", but I was rather disturbed by the potential for it to have turned out much worse.

    Anyway, I've been looking into the ins and outs of a concealed carry. I actually have one now, but I've yet to purchase a weapon. The weapon I have in mind is one that I'm sure will generate comment:

    Ruger SP 101 , 327 Magnum

    Yes, the new one with the not yet available ammunition.

    That is an interesting choice. on your permit, and welcome to the forum.

    Stay safe out there. I'm glad it only took a few dogs to get you interested in carrying...some of the members here had a much ruder wake up call.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Welcome. I too have had some unnerving experiences while hiking. I never go unarmed nowadays.

    Welcome
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    I have had more need and opportunity for a weapon while outdoors, walking in my pasture, front yard and around my pond. Therefore I keep one with me when I'm out on my property or hunting/hiking. I was bitten in my own front yard (which is 400 feet from the nearest neighbor) by a dog when I broke up the fight with my dog. The next day I brought some rat shot into the fray when the same dog entered my yard again for a fight. I've killed 7 snakes around my pond, passed within 20 yards of a wild hog boar.

    But the time I really wish I had been armed was when I was mugged in broad daylight in the Houston Zoo, of course I was only about 12 at the time.

    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
