Re: Strange night tonight!
Bummer to have a nice evening of fishing end on that kind of note. Normally when I carry a gun up here it's for bear, only occasionally for protection from anything else.
FWIW, I have a Glock I carry on the water at times. With their steel treatment and composite components I've found them to be pretty much impervious to the elements, mines been in salt & silt without it bothering it at all so far. I've had some stainless and nickel plated guns that haven't fared nearly so well. Mileage can vary on ammo in the water though . . .
