I totally agree with you tim, I am tired of everyone wanting more wilderness areas. I have pictures of when I was 2 and 3 years old on the Uncompahgre in Colorado in high traffic areas and it is still the same. The only difference is the trees and bushes are a lot bigger. I'm tired of them taking away our public lands. ,)
I don't get how can designate an area as wilderness, yet still leave access open to logging and claim not to infringe on recreation. If it is currently roadless, I see how you can claim you aren't restricting access for recreation, but I don't see how they can claim to still leave it open for logging.
That article lacked some important details.
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
