    Postak Hikers packing concealed heat

    Hikers who want to leave their daily lives behind sleep next to strangers in shelters, and many trade their real names for trail names. They sometimes can walk two or three days to find a town or a phone. While leaving society behind is refreshing, being alone in the woods also can be terrifying.

    How many of you own a 10 pound handgun? Even 5 pounds? Please raise your hands. 10 Freaking pounds. And this is a quote from a putative "expert" - an outfitter.

    The anti's will spew anything, and get it printed.

    I think an AK pistol weighs around 5 pounds with a 75 round drum.

    LOL!
