My name is Jared. I will be moving to Eagle River/Chugiak area next September. My BIL currently lives in Chugiak, I've gone over alot of stuff with him and my SIL but just want some second opinions. Ive learned alot from just lurking here and you all have great info on everything I enjoy doing. Ok first off wanted to know types of boots and outerwear to look into. Im moving from southern california so my winer clothes are limited and I dont want to be running around in hunting gear at work. I will be working for a telecommunication company in Anchorage and I will be working outside alot. Also good concealed carry weapons for me and the wife would be appreciated. Ive heard everything from you "need" a .44 mag to a 9mm will be just fine. Thanks guys in advance.
