Let me preface my reply with the obvious facts, I like guns. I have a lot of guns. I reload for fun. I have more shit than I will ever use when it comes to guns. But... I never carry when I go fishing. First of all I fish lakes 99.9 percent of the time. The wildest beast I've encountered was a snake (non-venomous). I doubt a bear, wolf, cougar, or other predator will attack me where I fish. I don't leave my car where tweakers have been known to frequent. I try really hard to avoid trouble. IF someone wanted my stuff, take it, I have more. Leave me and my truck, I'll even give you my cash, not my cards. Problems solved. No need to carry. I don't go to places I think I need to carry. But if I have to I carry...45cal, 230grains, spot frickin' on aim. No questions asked.
