How many attacks actually happen in the lower 48...I hear a lot of rumors about these types of things. Can anyone tell me where to go to read about attacks in the lower 48??
I've been thinking about taking a pistol with me - but I'm leaning towards taking a risk and leaving it at home. How common is it really?
I think that by using a good deal of common sense, you'll find that even in the wilds of Alaska where there's a bear behind every tree that if you look at the man hours of recreation put in vrs the number of attacks your safer there than in our nations capitol! I'd prefer a bear that really wants nothing to do with me to a drug addict that wants my wallet.
