    Training with a gun in your jersey pocket is a thing now?

    Yeah. Letting off steam by firing a gun isn't a bad thing in and of itself, but in a residential area? It sounds like he was just blasting into the side of a hill...again, usually no harm, no foul...BUT, if there really was homes nearby I can see why the LEO's charged him.

    Additionally, shooting from a moving bike? Now that's just bizarre...unless your in the People's Liberation Army.

    Summerhill should have definitely observed the law that you cant discharge a firearm from a roadway. He was just asking for trouble. I guess those drugs the pro's use make them a bit angrier than usual!
    As a Colorado resident, it's certainly a good idea to conceal carry if your riding though. Colorado has a lot of remote locations with big animals (saw a lynx the other day in Rist Canyon), and many rednecks who don't like us non-fuel using cyclists. So learn the laws, be responsible, and carry a pistol while on the bike.
