Of course being properly trained in the safe and responsible care of a firearm is highly recommended and having a carry permit would make it legal.
Schultzzy- I just travel with someone who is a slower runner than myself.
“Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. They smelled of moss in your hand. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes. Of a thing which could not be put back. Not be made right again. In the deep glens where they lived all things were older than man and they hummed of mystery.”
