Sorry, but as a former Marine with heavy firearm training, and someone who has watched a human die from an accidental firearm discharge, I think Icecreamjs statement was valid.
As you stated, you pulled a pistol and rode with it, on a bike, with your adrenalin pumping. You, someone who works in public safety, was flying around a public trail at night scared out of your mind with a loaded pistol in your hand (round in the chamber? I hope not). What if you bumped into me while I was taking a piss with my light off by the side of trail?
So, sorry to single you out here, but your story makes me scared to ride at night. Not because of old ladies, but because there might be a freaked out trigger happy mountain biker ripping around singletrack in a panic with a loaded pistol in hand.
