    All things considered... I need to improve my aim.

    Not a lot.

    No one thinks they need a gun for self defence and our police do not carry them.

    If you want a gun for vermin control (farmers) or target/clay pigeon shooting then you have to apply for a licence and give good reason for owning it. It then has to be kept in a fixed, locked metal cabinet when not in use.

    EDIT: I just realised how old this thread is!

    Very strange indeed for Utah. I've never run into any problems with locals there. Hopefully this was just a freak occurrence.

    I've had things thrown at me. Rocks in Montana (bad for groundlgass). They resent Calif plates - think we're all from some
    palm-tree lined beach and out there with the intent of buying of their ranches and developing it. I grew up with cowboys myself and can understand the resentment, but really, they're got a pretty unrealistic stereotype of Calif - which is a very
    diverse state. Rocks at the Grand Canyon - unsupervised kids - good reason to avoid popular official scenic overlooks. Been
    more than hassled in Utah several times (weirdo cops who belonged to the local polygamous cult), bad cops in Nevada etc,
    just wanted undeserved fines for the public coffer.
