I called the police a few days later and they had already confiscated the gun. The park ranger had contacted them the day I reported it and knew who the guy was. The police went to his house.
The guy with the pistol explained to the police that he was afraid of running into escaped convicts on the trail. I think he wanted to find an "escaped convict".
And it turns out he had fired it when he saw me in the distance, getting ready for action I suppose. I also noticed that he brought the gun up to his side as he approached me. It was nearly pointed at me.
What's really wild is that the guy is nearly blind. Good combination, guns and poor eyesight.
Glad the police took it seriously. I haven't seen the guy since.
