I got ya Snick, and I'm sure you are a responsible gun owner, as I would assume most of the people here who own guns are responsible, in the same way that I assume we are all responsible hikers/outdoors people...it's the others that I worry about...Snick33 wrote:Just for the record CK, because I have a concealed gun permit,I carry my little pistol well inside my backpack.
As a former NRA member (4 years) I'd have to disagree with you on this point...I'd characterize the NRA as a political lobbying organization that also engages in firearm education.Wiz wrote:And finally, I hate to see people who obviously don't know what they're talking about disparage the NRA, which is and has always been a strong advocate for firearm safety and education. People fear firearms out of ignorance. Education is available, so these people must choose to live in fear voluntarily. The NRA is a fine American institution and deserves your support, not your ridicule. At the very least, go to their web site and learn something about them before making silly remarks.
I wonder if they had a fort?...like the ones we all used to make...and apparently Jeremy's brother still makespixelfrog wrote: Do I think it's a little odd for grown adults to be playing G.I. Joe out in the desert, yes a little, but each to his own.

Maybe they scowled at you because you were close the their secret hiding place...
I used to have a fort, and we didn't ever let girls come in the fort...which in later years we would regret...but anyway, we had a great fort...and we played GI Joe...we'd set up ambushes to capture the mailman...who never really appreciated it the way we thought he should....ok, sorry.
So maybe those guys were just VERY serious fort builders.
