    Smallest packs I've found so far : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0033JCUH6/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B0033JCUH6&linkCode=as2&tag=rangermade-20&linkId=BVZ5G77VZKBL7KLX https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001F0O0WI/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B001F0O0WI&linkCode=as2&tag=rangermade-20&linkId=7RF3UVWAKN7PXZ23 https://hornhunterpacks.com/product/slingshot-maq-lr-pack/ I've always been skeptical of how good "bow-carrying" capability really was. I want the bow's finish and string protected, and I don't think many do that. Plus there's always the "What happens when you fall on your bow?" question. Would be interested to see individual models people think prove me wrong.

    I think the chances of running into trouble are much higher when attackers can remain anonymous, or can act without you knowing. As a thought experiment, let's imagine you're looking for work or applying for a non-political assignment at work or in the community. Maybe it's a charitable position, like with the Red Cross or United Way. The rumor is that potential employers will Google you to see what they're getting into. I don't know how common that is. I probably wouldn't do it until after I'd met at least once with the applicant. I'm not sure I'd do it all, but I wouldn't say never. Putting aside that some industries would care less about what you think than others, what are the chances that IN GENERAL what you think or are interested in affects your chances?

    I think that's probably how it goes most of the time. People who know you probably usually aren't going to flog you, although some can't resist. I used to get a snide comment about hunting every once in a while, but that was always from two or three people who wanted to be snide to me anyway. It stopped when they passed on to the next dimension, I got out of their orbit, or they mellowed with age a little.

    That's a really good question.. I'm not sure if it's exactly like asking which state has the best unicorn hunting, but it's close. Congratulations! ---LOL Here's something to get everyone started. https://www.rangermade.net/top-hunting-backpack-reviews/best-bow-hunting-backpack

    I wonder if anti-hunting sentiment is stronger than it used to be, say, 20 years ago. My guess is yes. Back then, if the topic came up somehow, somebody might just raise an eyebrow. Nowadays I think there's a much greater chance that real damage gets done to personal and business relationships. You can always point to the high-profile cases, especially the women who get ripped on social media for hunting. If that's what women go through out in the open, imagine what's happening to guys behind their backs. I don't have all that much hard evidence in my own situation, though I have no doubt I could easily have a vehicle keyed or lose work in a variety of situations. You usually never find out what's going on behind your back, so I thought it would be interesting to look around and see what other people think and have experienced in their own situations.

    ....Or for gun ownership, politics, religion, opinion or other item that has caused you to hide or downplay it in public or on social media? Do you know of any stories related to this that you can link to? Thanks. Particularly interested in the hunting part of the question, so I'd appreciate any and all thoughts on that especially.

    Okay, maybe those training proposals will turn up later. Unless somebody beats me to it, I'll see if I can prioritize an email to Giffords, Schumer and Feinstein asking if they know where we can find some. So on to Myth #3, which is: In busting this myth, Giffords helpfully points out that various studies may not agree. Strangely, however, Giffords does not address the concept that *your* gun may not participate in a study when it comes time to use it. In addition, the idea that "permissive concealed carry laws may actually increase the frequency of some type of crime, such as assault" is just laughable, but maybe Giffords was just having a bad day when they highlighted that. Let's sit down with some different studies and hash this all out. We'll get the Giffords studies and the studies that indicate something different from the Giffords studies and we'll figure this out together. With the right statistics and some central planning, all things are possible. Also, we're confident that Giffords won't find correlations or infer causations or draw conclusions that aren't justified, because they never do that. I mean, the evidence is right there in their argument:

    LOL ...I was on "another archery forum" the other day and somebody had to explain that "FB" meant Facebook and "XX" meant the guy they were discussing (whose initials are XX, LOL). I thought that was a little overboard, but other much less obvious initials were flying around as well, so ... What I can't stand is when forum members use another poster's real name instead of his handle. How am I supposed to know who "Jim" is? Is he Grizlyluvr48, or Whackmaster69? And why is "that A-hole who we all know who he is" talking bad about him on AFF? He might build the darn-tootenist LRR north south east AAAaaandD west of the Pecos (!) but if I can't tell if I like how he measures HS or polishes his TG from reading his posts, I won't be able to stop by his shop next time I'm in the Big A. Know what I mean, Vern?

    Might have been this thread, or one of the newsy ones. Trump's Diet Cokes? I said I saw an article on it but that I didn't read it. "Too stupid; didn't read? TS; DR (?) ...Could that become a thing?" I asked. I didn't get an answer from the judges, so I haven't implemented it yet. But I have an itchy typing finger, and one of these unlicensed keyboards. :beer:

    Speaking of moving forward, you can now probably get permission to own a suppressor faster than it takes to bring a baby to term and deliver it to the world, with about 30 days to spare. That's progress. If you add the time it might take to convince another person to breed with you, things are pretty even between getting government approval for a gun part, and creating human life. So what could go wrong with a federally-approved training program?

    I'm going to give the internet about an hour more to find all these training proposals from anti-reciprocity folks and then we'll more on to the next topic. Hopefullly Chuck Schumer or Diane Feinstein are reading, because they can tell us whether their own training for CC permits was adequate or should we be doing something different. I wouldn't want something like a minor disagreement on a training requirement keep us from moving forward on this issue.

    Yes, that's one thing that chaps my butt. Once upon a time, if you hid your arms you were of suspect character. I guess if you're a bad hombre up to no good and want to carry a gun, it would be better to get the paperwork done and the references checked and the training certified, so you'd have the option of concealed OR open carry. Who doesn't like options?

    Okay, so my request for a heads-up on any other CC record-keeping issues besides Vermont's still stands, but in the meantime let me move on another part of Giffords' Myth Buster #1, which is the question of a lack of uniform CC training requirements among states. I wondered what training requirements would satisfy Giffords, so I tried to find something from them about it. I was unsuccessful. In fact, I couldn't find any proposed training plan from any group, but maybe I missed something. What training requirements would make anti-reciprocity people happy, whether they're official demands from groups or just points you've heard being made by individuals?
