People who live / visit in Bear country should really familiarize themselves with their local environment and it's many members. A good read for some reality checking: (I knew and worked with one...

    I share your concern that way too many people have not had experience with bears and put way too much trust in the spray can. For a first attempt @ a curious animal looking for a handout, maybe. But for me the first round of defense in an attack or charging bear, will never be from a spray can...

    Glock 36 in 45ACP is a favorite among LE as well and that is what I carry. 9mm - great penetration / 45ACP great knockdown power. I like it also for a more forgiving recoil. I tried them all 9mm, 40, 357sig and settled on the old military preferred round.

    I recently moved to AZ a year ago last April. (Open Carry / no license required). Went to the Expo in Flagstaff with some OB members from SW Region, many from southern CA. They didn't seem to appreciate my camo clothes or the fact that I was concealed carrying. I was asked if I was armed and...

    I got my Friday day pass, but camping for vehicles seems to be sold out. I might have to drive way away from town to find a place to camp. So could someone please send me time and location to meet-up with the pack near Kingman, AZ?

    That sounds like so much fun. I am once again going to try and attend some events with my 4Runner. Been doing major repairs and upgrades, but I think she's finally ready for another try. I'm in Parker right now, looking to meet the local OBers.
