I have a permit to carry a gun does anyone ride with a hand gun while pleasure riding not hunting . I ask only because we ride in some remote areas and last years we had a lot of cases of rabbid animals . I would think normal animals would be scared away by the atv noise .or is frowned upon on public trails ?

Yes, the nuclear powered Glock 20sf, the muzzle blast alone kills everything. Also cruise around with my Saiga when I'm on my land to kill all hogs and Yotes.

When it comes to carrying I'm worse than a chick with a purse. Depending on the clothes I have on or the situation I may carry a xd subcompact 9 with either extended mag or flush mag depending on shirt. Sometimes if I feel like being a bad ass I carry my mill spec Springfield 1911 on a shoulder holster or a sub nose .38 inside the waste band or on the ankle.

Sure do, if I'm in dirt and not sand/water I'll carry a M&P 40c in a Safariland retention holster and if the terrain is sandy or watery (more rust potential) I'll put my M&P 360 snub nose .357 inside my rear rack bag.

When I'm in hunt mode I will carry because I get off the machine and walk around. Might get lucky and get a shoot at a coyote. When I'm out with my buddies generally I won't carry. We are usually rippin most of the time unless the wives are with us. This is my newest addition.

Always! Never leave home without it. I know what you mean we have a wild hog problem on the trail system closest to where I live. Most of the time they stay away but some of the large boars can really be mean.

I like to ride with a M&P9 however if it's a large enough group, I typically leave it home or in the truck.

You're not alone, I conceal carry Glock 19. Never know what you're going to run into on the trail.

I usually carry my Dan Wesson 357 while hunting, and when just riding in area we hunt. A lot of coyote in the area.

Wild Hog

Here a is an example from today's trail ride about the wild hogs we run into on the trail system we ride near by the most. I worry about them more than I do most of the people I come into contact with out there. But just in case I am ready for them too.

That looks like some good eating right there! I think I'll be packing my XD 9mm this year when I'm riding. Just in case and I figure my .454 might be overkill :cowboy:
