After reading all the gun threads on here I have come up with a simple solution.
To decrease the venomous, mean spirited posts about carry guns, shooting small prey, shooting tentmates, eating meat, etc. Why don't we all hike together? Knowing someone makes you less inclined to play internet tough guy. You see, I as well as many here have hiked togther at our annual BPL hike. When you get to know someone, you tend to be more civil towards one another. Just a thought. If you are a vegetarian cool, if you love meat, cool too. Hunters and non hunters...come along and have a fun time. You see, we are bound by the love of backpacking and being in the mountains....
as well as our sickness of buying gear......(there I said it! I am addicted to gear!)
