Like Pier in Portland, I believe more golfers will have a great effect making the park less dangerous to all users once there's sufficient traffic.
However, since I didn't have a concealed carry permit and a .50 Kimber I took it to Lake Fenwick - also remote, but fewer sketchy people and I met cool folks nearly every round. Kinda miss it.
I'd still make the trip up to do Fenwick/Seatac and Lakewood, but I'd make sure someone in the group had a concealed carry permit for Seatac!
I'm no gun nut, but hey, if it comes down to me and my ability to chase frisbees like a Labrador in peace, and some tweaker's next thrill, well, I guess I've made my position pretty clear...I welcome back Darwin in the case of the Meth addict.
I have a carry permit and I carry my .25 caliber Beretta and backup magazines with me almost anytime I go out but most of the time if I am playing a neighborhood course or anytime going to a state that does not honor our permits then I don't carry it. I refuse to play Seatac without my gun or without others around as well. I don't play Seatac much because of all of the problems there, and the fact it's too far from my house.
By the way last time I checked Kimber doesn't make a .50 caliber, largest is a .45 ACP
