From someone that is looking to move to AR and likes guns does this mean when I'm out in the woods hiking or on my ATV I'm not allowed to carry a sidearm? Just asking because when I ride here I always have a gun with me, I just never know what I'm going to run into.

If the laws are such then I might have to get a ccw permit, the only thing is that it is pretty hard to conceal a 44Mag under most jackets or just not carry any guns at all. I'll do what the law requires.

Let us pray the law will not "require" us to give up our constitutional rights.

If you're in the woods, or out on an "ATV" (known in the 'woods" as simply a "4 wheeler"), you are allowed to be armed, unless you're a convicted felon or one of the other exemptions.

As a matter of fact, it's practically required.

If you're settling in the rural areas, there are critters that you can run into that are not hospitable.

I've concealed my Desert Eagle .50AE, so I'm thinking that your little .44 mag should be doable.

Especially if you stumble onto a marijuana patch.

Just asking? Why do you need something as big like a 44mag? I have a Ruger 44mag. it's fun to shoot but way to big for CCW. My CCW gun is a glock 22 and a 27, 40cal.that's all you need and allot more fire power.

From an anti-personnel standpoint, you don't need a .44 mag.

When I go out to check the integrity of my timber, I don't wish to run into mama bear with her cubs, mama sow with her piglets, or someone that felt it would be OK to grow dope in my woods without checking with me first.

The first two render a very mad, large, muscular critter that is worse than a woman I know who is an evil straight-razor-totin' lost soul. At least she has some sense. Scared critters do not.

Now over in your neck of the woods, there's more than a couple of meth labs. Choose your caliber carefully.

Choose your caliber carefully, .40 S&W
Glock 22. I hope that would make short work of a bear.

Where I presently ride my ATV/4 wheeler or hike I have some pretty big and can be nasty animals. The guns you mentioned I have also but you know all a 40 cal is going to do is make a grizzly really really mad. So that is the reason I carry a 44mag presently, at least I get a little more of a fighting chance. I would really rather carry a sawed off 12 gauge mag shotgun but a little harder to handle on the rig and to carry when hiking.

I normally don't carry any guns unless I'm in the woods on an outing.

To RogMar,

" I've concealed my Desert Eagle .50AE, so I'm thinking that your little .44 mag should be doable. "

When you are already a little rotund like me it can be difficult to conceal anything little alone a little 44mag. I can agree that compared to the Desert Eagle my 44 is little.

Oh I knew you were, and I took it absoultly no other way. I took it in the way it was intended in jest and not serious. That was why I poked myself a little also when I told I was rotund even though it is true.
