Default Hiking Gun

Planning a hiking trip in the Emigrant Wilderness in Stanislaus National forest in CA. Thinking of taking my 1960's Ruger .357 Blackhawk. Does anyone have any experience packing with a gun on their hip? Anyone run into anybody giving them trouble? I know it's legal to do, but I've had forest rangers and cops lie to my face when I ask about gun related matters in and around Angeles National forest.
Just looking for some personal experience/stories.

you could ask hayden, but he would probably suggest you carry a rubber band and a hankerchief, since guns r badddd

Any compact handgun should be sufficient, from a 380 all the way up to a .45. But if you are looking to carry to instigate a confrontation, you are sorely missing the point.

The Europeans will be in soon to tell you that guns are bad mmmkay, and how evil and irresponsible you are, but take the gun. When hiking in the wilderness, you never know. There are bears in the Emigrant and their warnings even suggest to take certain precautions from them.

Our anti-US gun brigade here would suggest taking balloons to pop in case of bear attack, to simulate gun fire. But i would pack a rifle or even a pistol if it were me. Attacks are rare, but they do happen sometimes, especially if you accidentally walk up on a mother and her cub.

It would not be to instigate any kind of confrontation. That's something I really don't feel like dealing with. It's just when I go into the woods I become aware of my lowered status on the food chain.

I looked around on the web for you. You're welcome It is legal to carry in National Forests, but it must be open carry unless you have a permit to carry concealed in CA. But get a phone number for a ranger station in the forest and call them to be sure! Stuff on the web can get old and outdated.

You can open carry but I recommend you spend a few bucks and get a concealed license permit. I always carry when on a hike. You never know what animal, human or otherwise, you may come across. Better to be prepared for the unexpected.

See that is the biggest problem today; obeying the law doesn't guarantee you won't be arrested and hit with trumped up charges anyway.

Out in the woods there are not as many cameras to counter their claims you were "resisting arrest".

Go big or go home, right?

Check out the Ruger Alaskan. .454 Casull if I'm not mistaken.
