I don't have a concealed carry license. However, if I was going to Falcon I would have a semi auto sporting rifle in one of the front rod lockers with at least 4 standard capacity reloads easily accessible.
For normal bodies of water, I could probably defend myself with a 1/2 oz lipless at a farther distance than I could accurately shoot a handgun. LOL.
It’s always good to have something handy to dispatch those unruly pelagics who don’t want to stay in the ice chest. My shark shooter is in the co-angler bag in the rear deck compartment. langlowe9’s border pirate rifle is in the rod locker. On our last trip we agreed that a console holstered sawed-off 12 gauge would be perfect for big head carp infested impoundments.
Now I am not sayin I would go heeled out on any body of water. Cause ya know big brother is just itchin to find a reason to request that particular tackle away from our dear friend Jeremy. But if I was so inclined to be counted among those paltry few who own such items I am certain I would always have one on my person....for snakes and such of course. Never know when a gator might attack the yak.
