They survived the great North American catastrophe when the giant bison, wooly mammoths, mastadons, short faced bears, cave lions, giant sloths, giant armadillos, giant elk, saber toothed cat and others did not.

I once shot a cougar in my cycling shorts. How he got in my cycling shorts I'll never know.

For a second I had thought this story is about how the nature is retaking Earth during the pandemic. Disappointed.

I have no idea what the Washngton's states laws are, regarding the concealed carry of a firearm. Where I live and all the surrounding states, I'm able to carry, and I do.

That is your opinion, I have a completely different one. I doubt highly that I will shoot myself in my leg. I'm very well trained in handling firearms. I have been shooting firearms since I was 9 years old. I'm not afraid of anyone. If someone attacks me with intend to harm me, I will use my firearm to stop them. I will also use my firearm to stop an attack by any animal. Its been done many times. Gee I wonder why all all the brave men that died for our freedom, didn't use air horns during battle?

From my 2019 tour. Too far to climb for a date.

Gun talk is verboten on BF. Just thought I would let you know.
