    Thanks, J-fit.

    Oh man, can you imagine if those family combatants a few months back had weapons?

    They will only allow you to carry up until the security to downtown Disney. They then escort you to a special area at Disneyland where you secure it in a lock box and pick it up when you leave. My hotel is always across the street but I've seen enough pursuits end right at Disney where I'll always carry for the walk

    That is a good reason, my wife's family was robbed when traveling to California from Kentucky in the late 50's. The guys had a red light and a siren on their vehicle and held them at gunpoint while one of them raped a family member. We also had two different women, close to where I live, shot to death by an illegal, he is on trial....Jetspray

    Any time Im in the remote area I m for sure carrying. And when I am traveling late at night on long hauls there is one in the trunk in case I break down on the side of the road for some reason.

    I carry whereever I go. I have a Utah CCW permit and my .45 is always at my side. Whenever fishing my buddies also are packing heat. At times I see some folks in stores packing.

    The exception to the penal code is you cannot carry during archery season.

    I carry 24/7 everyday, and every place I go. There isnt a place I wont carry. I carry all the way to the gates at Disneyland

    Only to cast and blast. Ducks in the morning stipers when the morning flight is over. On a more serious note boats have lots of storage and I think coast guard may require you to carry a signaling device. Flair gun, whistle, mirror, etc. If they don't you should carry one anyway. The only other time I carry a firearm is when I am halibut fishing and need to calm down a barn door.

    Anyone Carry a firearm while fishing?

    Either on the boat or on the shore? Anyone had any experinces that would make them carry one?

    Interesting, I had an experince a few years back while hunting. Coming back in from a long day of hunting, I almost totaled my jeep heading back to camp, in a rural, rural area that borders a wilderness area. My jeep was hanging off the side of a small cliff, I was about 6 miles (as the road goes) from camp. However, as the bird flies, I was not too far. It was dark, and there was an abundant amount of bear tracks to make you a bit concerned for your safety having to hike.

    Other then my hunting rifle, all I had was my 45 and a box of ammo. I used the 45, firing three rounds, waited a minute or so, and did it again. From the other side of the canyon, where our camp was, I heard someone fire three rounds back (a sign of acknowledgement). Before you know, there was a convoy of hunters that left camp and were looking for me. They found me pretty quick after.

    I'm sure I would have made it back without getting lost, but my batteries in my light where a bit low, no moon, and it was a bit of a hike. The likelihood of accidents like rolled ankles and falls dramatically increased in the dark.

    Now just thinking, what if I'm out on some rural lake and the motor dies. Just saying, a firearm is a tool, and used correctly, can save your life in a vast amount of unfortunate situations. That's just rural lake fishing, what about more populated area's? Out in the Delta there are quite a few questionable people. Year's ago, I had some guys try to car jack me while I was fishing for Sturgeon out on a levee. No one got hurt, and oddly enough, there was LEO really close by in that situation and the suspect was arrested.

    Anyone have any experience's that would make you lean towards carrying, or not carrying a firearm while fishing.

    Another interesting CA LAW CA PC 12027. Here is synopsis of the law:

    There is a California Penal Code law that allows anglers to carry a gun while fishing and while hiking to and from their angling site. California Penal Code, section 12025 prohibits carrying concealed firearms in California, however, section 12027 provides the following exemption to this prohibition: “Licensed hunters or fishermen carrying pistols, revolvers or other firearms capable of being concealed upon the person while engaged in hunting or fishing, or transporting those firearms unloaded when going to or returning from the hunting or fishing expedition.” Remember that some areas that allow fishing, such as state and national parks, and some incorporated areas where fishing is allowed prohibit the possession of any firearm. Make sure to check on the local laws where you plan to fish. The California Bureau of Firearms in the Department of Justice posts a summary of California firearm laws online at http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/.

    To my knowledge, this law does not apply while on National Forest Land.
