So, after reading this thread, if I go to the Pinnacles National Monument Park (national Park), I can take a firearm with me to my designated campsite, but I cannot take it with me on a hike (California law). I can have it in my car or in my tent, but I cannot carry it concealed in a backpack.
Next to me in the blackness lay my oiled blue steel beauty. The greatest Christmas gift I had ever received, or would ever receive. Gradually, I drifted off to sleep, pringing ducks on the wing and getting off spectacular hip shots.
