When you hike in the woods, you will most likely encounter bigger things with teeth and claws than I will here.

Mostly raccons and coyotes, but my son did have two cougar sightings on my property.

.45 ACP should stop these little critters.

Wow, I've never thought once about needing a second gun. If I'm in some sort of situation where my shooting hand isn't available to grab for it I'm already taking care of business up close and personal - gouging out eyeballs, biting off noses, kneeing nads into flapjacks, and screaming extremely graphic, muderous things like a crazed, blood thirsty banshee.

Might attempt an ankle holster at some point, just to see if it can be pulled off. I guess it would behoove me to place it on the weak side, as you so asutuely point out.

Hell when it gets so bad I need more weapons than a B-Western cowboy?? I will just hire a Seal Team to follow me around.

I look at it more as having the strong arm being in use for some other purpose - holding something is the best example. Or in a position where weak side draw is faster and more practical.

Better to be prepared for that contingency and practice for it. It adds another layer of safety and comfort.

True, somewhat over the top. Circumstances would dictate all that ordinance. Normally one gun, one spare mag is what goes with me.

I hear you on that, when im working in seattle and i know i have to go to/through certain areas, i will carry a pocket backup gun (either in pocket or small of back) and a backup knife (actually my primary knife becomes a backup and i will carry a fixed blade as primary). The are near gary's market (if its still there) is one of those places that you would be better not to visit with anything less than a squad of armed men.
