    The only problem was that my wife caught the two biggest smallmouths. (sound of crying). lol

    Well the wife and I ran down to a mile or so from CC today. The water is fairly dingy and 44F. We know a point on the end of a bluff we can walk to. On the point is 4 or 5 stumps and 5 or 6 big rocks. This is within a few feet of the main channel in 5 to 8 ft of water. We always hit this spot during warm weather periods in Feb and/or March and always manage to catch a few nice largemouth up on that shallow water warming themselves. Usually not huge but 2 to 3 lbs. Well today we caught 9 bass with 4 being keepers. There were 2 at 16" each, one at 18" and one at 20". The real surprise was they were all smallmouths. That was a blast for some bass fishing from the bank. It surprises me because we do not usually catch many smallmouth around CC and never caught any off that point before. A nice day on the lake.

    Look for shallow areas near deep water. They often lay next to dark objects on sunny days to warm up. Good luck.

    Gun questions

    I don't understand. about 4 months ago I called both SOF and SOF and SOF said they do not rent guns for on site use and Cheorokee told me they only had 2 rifles and 2 shotguns an d they were older models just for people who had never experienced firing a gun. Anyway, thanks flysmallie/harps. I guess I will get back on the phone.

    Yea I agree snagged but luckily she is not the type to panic and she is familiar with my rifles and shotguns and has shot them plenty but she still does not like guns. Its funny, I am not sure she could pull the trigger if she was seriously threatened but I think she could blow someones head off if they were actually attacking me. lol

    I hope they are not having any hassles either. This is nothing new. In years past it was just a evil stare or an off color comment like "why don't you Japanese go back to where you came from and in her case that would be Eureka Springs, LOL These we just ignored but things have worsened in the last 3 years and getting law enforcement involved, well not much they can do without witnesses or identification (other than a lot of paperwork lol). We do have a camera installed in our vehicles now. I am going to have a long talk with my wife tonight about maybe getting a taser. Are there permits required for that as well? Anybody know.?

    I totally agree with you terrierman and am considering backing of from the whole thing except for maybe me carrying one. The wife has a deep seated dislike and fear of guns but as a husband I really worry about her safety when she is alone. I don't even know if she would use it if she were alone. You never know about that type of thing until the situation arises.

    Gun questions

    She carries pepper spray with her now. I just don't know if that would be enough or not. We both used to jog a lot and ran into some very aggressive dogs. We have sprayed a couple and they just pause, lick their lips and then keep coming on. That does not give one much confidence.

    Gun questions

    JD I fully agree. You can see some of my history in terrierman's reply I made above BUT like you said the gun world has changed a lot since then. One thing I was wondering. The conceal and carry classes I have been looking at require you to bring your gun with you. This would mean that we would have to pay $60/each for the safety class, test fire the guns, select the one we want, buy them, then retrain with the conceal and carry class. At this point I am leaning toward billethead's offer. Try his gun, if we like it then buy one and take it to the conceal and carry class and then the range. I think that may be the easiest route.

    Terrierman My wife is an American but of oriental descent. Since the Trump campaign there has been a steady increase in the number of threats she has experienced. Some of the threats center around illegal aliens should be deported, which do not even apply in her case, and others that illegal aliens shot be shot on sight. When she goes out in public I ride along with her to run interference but I would like her to be more secure than that. Besides, I can't always be with her. In addition I have grown up with guns (shotguns and rifles) and was taught to be a very gun safety oriented person. I even taught gun safety when the regs came out in the late 70's but the world has changed considerable since then.

    OK, Just got off the phone with SOF in Ozark. First of all they require us to take a handgun safety course ($60 each), $50 to rent the gun and the lane for 1 hour and then the cost of shells on top of that. Ouch. They estimated a total around $200. He said the safety courses are usually fairly full so that would leave me out anyway. Right now I have to go give mouth to mouth to my wallet as it fainted when it heard those prices.

    I know that many of the websites recommend the shield for a ladies handgun. Thanks for the advice.
