Packing heat on 14ers....
Whoa, you think you know people.
A hilarious, and a little unnerving, thread on 14ers.com has hundreds of people chiming in about whether one needs to hike with a side arm. A surprising number of people apparently do.
In all our nights in the wilderness, we've never been confronted by a bear or lion, though we've seen a few. I'd be more worried about a twisted ankle than a wild beastie. Or, I guess, now I'm worried about accidental discharge of fire arms too.
