Re: [at-l] Technology on the Trail: weapons

I agree with this. I wasn't advocating carrying weapons. Unless you 
really know what you are doing nothing is served by carrying one and as 
you note traiining is an ongoing process.

I'd rather buy that lottery ticket. I've purchased one in my entire life 
and that was only when a jackpot was ridiculously large a couple years 
ago (didn't win anything).
