I'd go ahead and post in the mtn bike thread also. Its more of a BS thread now days anyways

I carry a kershaw folder clipped to my shorts pocket. You could also get a can of pepper spray and clip it to your backpack strap.

Hey everyone. Been following this thread for awhile; lots of great info.

My brother was at our mom's house with his dog in her backyard when the next door neighbor's pitbull jumped the block wall and attacked his dog. He stopped it in time before it fucked his dog up, and he fucked the pitbull up, but it got me thinking about my lack of protection when I'm out riding my mt bike on trails or riding to work.

I have pistols and what not, but don't see any real way of carrying it without it popping out of the holster from being banged around on trails. I used to carry it in my bag but I would have to get off the bike, open the bag, and grab the gun before I could use it. Plus I ride by a few schools on the way to work and I'd rather not get in trouble for carrying a gun so close by.

So I had this old knife laying around and test attached it to the shoulder strap of the bag. It works, but it is a pretty big F'n knife and I feel it looks a bit ridiculous. I thought about using a smaller knife like the S&W one shown, but it isn't too secure when it's clipped onto the "anchor points," at least where it is easily accessible with one hand while riding.

This is more for protection against wild animals and what not that you encounter when riding around. I know it's better to look ridiculous and have it it than look fine and not have it when you need it.

Opinions? I guess I could just find a knife about 2/3s the size of this one but I'd rather use what I already have. What do you guys do when riding around?

Figured this was the thread to put this in since the mountain bike one is more about just posting pics of your bike.

Agreed.

BTW, if you have problems with your pistol "popping out of the holster", you need a better holster.

A can of pepper spray will be much more realistically useful against an animal than a knife or baton. You can use spray while riding, and it's easy to carry/deploy. If you've already dismounted to deal with the animal (which would need to be done for an effective knife or baton defense), you've got your bike to use as a barrier, but again, it's difficult to use a knife or baton effectively while holding a bike. Dropping a bike to use a weapon opens you up to counterattack.

Better to spray and beat the dog with the bike itself.

Another good option.

If you want to carry a gun while exercising, there are several lightweight revolver and semi-autos to choose from, along with shirts made for concealed carry while running/biking, or a good fanny pack bag, like Blackhawk's. A fanny pack can be worn across the shoulder, bandolier style, too. A Maxpedition Versipack may also fit the bill.

If dogs were my concern while riding a bike, and I had to choose one item for defense, I'd still take spray over a gun, knife, or stick. Ideally, take more than one, but recognize that each has their strengths and weaknesses. A Kahr PM9, a can of spray, and a small folder don't weigh much, or take up much space.

Buy a hand cranked transfer pump so you can harvest the fuel tanks of the less fortunate and commercial storage tanks.

If EMP is your game, keep the panels stored in a Faraday cage, along with your truck. Since you probably live in an old missile complex, so that's not a concern anyway.
I'm good to go. I have the launch codes.

Any of you guys ever just hop in your truck with your bug-out bag only and put your kit to the test for a few days in the forest or desert?
I've done this in the desert a few times and have managed to narrow down my pack to what's on the list I posted.

Yes.
It's called backpacking.

As I mentioned when I first posted in this thread, some of the gear lists posted are unrealistic WRT portability on foot. I don't care how much of a badass someone may be, humping an 80 lb pack severely limits their mobility. Anyone that's interested in creating a functional pack and gear system should spend time studying backpacking and mountaineering. When you spend a week living out of what's on your back, and you need to cover a lot of ground, you quickly realize what's important.

Good luck with the recovery.

A tank skid plate may help prevent that in the future. I'd do that before welding it in place. Another option would be to clean up the mounting hardware and use red thread locker. It has about the same effect as welding, but is a lot safer.

Backpacking is one thing. I do that as well. But I don't carry a rifle and ammo when I do that(and I don't hunt), so my bug-out and backpacking kits, while similar, aren't 100% interchangeable given some of the extra equipment involved.
I have set up targets at a shooting spot, drove out, then hiked in, camped, ranged my targets, took some shots, packed up and hiked out.

It's alot of fun and adds a whole new dimension to hiking/backpacking

A lot*

No doubt.
That's called soldiering.
Done that, too.

I haven't bothered shopping for a lightweight, folding stock rifle, but one of those might be ideal for that kind of thing. A minimalist SBR AR-15, stripped down to a super light package, would also fit the bill. I pity anyone shopping for any firearm products right now, though.

Regrettably, I can't claim the title of soldier, so I just call it hiking in and shooting But I've taken enough precision rifle classes and had enough trigger time to be OK at it.

I've packed my .300 WM in a couple of times, but that's a lot of gun for the distances I've been able to set up at. So, more often than not I'll just tote an 18" SPR since that's good for 700-800 yards. On the heavy side for an AR, but still pales in comparison to the heavy profile of the bolt gun.
This is what I typically carry when I do that.

Not gonna happen! It's more or less a one-of-a-kind build. And a consistent 3/4" grouper. I think I'd unload the .300WM before this one.

It's a pig. But a very accurate pig.

All AR's are pretty much one-of-a-kinders.. lol

Nice rifle, I have a trusty scoped 30-06 I call Ma-Bell (Reach out and touch someone) along with too many other toys in the gun safe, but I honestly think my most useful rifle is my newest: 10-22 takedown. That's got to be the coolest small caliber rifle ever made. Shoots like a dream, made to last an eternity with black polymer/stainless steel everything, weighs nothing and packs down so small it's almost a pistol while still taking all the 1022 accessories/mags. Even comes with a shooting/BOB type bag that is just awesome..

True that. But this is a different one-of -a-kind

I love the 10/22 takedown. And they say everyone should own a 10/22, but for some reason one has yet to find its way into my safe. I have a TacSol .22 upper and a CMMG conversion bolt, so those will have to do it for now. I want my next .22 to be a Savage MKII BRJ, but I don't think I'm going to bother until I start seeing ammo on the shelves again.

The AR-15 or the Ruger 10/22 takedown? Best under or behind the backseat truck gun ever.

I see you are also in SoCal. The takedown can be had for roughly ~$300-330 at Turners where I picked mine up a few months ago, and at the last crossroads of the west gunshow here in Costa Mesa I was able to pick up a LOT of .22 ammo, but had to spend about an hour total in various lines. Got everything from a few thousand bulk rounds up to a case of 900 CCI stingers for WAY too much ($0.30 each!), but a great round I can't find anywhere else right now.

It's certainly not my first choice for hunting or self defense, but a hole in the head stops a lot of creatures and 1600+ fps certain will put a hole through a lot of skulls.
