Conceal Carry

I never see anything mentioned on this, but in these times, I figured I would start a thread.

I might mention, laws are constantly changing state to state.

Make sure f you have one you know the recoprocity laws for the state you travel in or threw

P.A.'s out of state lisence, picks up alot that Ohio doesnt have, as in many states cases.

Many states carrying and not having one is a feloney now.

Many reasons to carry. I read an article about a guy camping and he was attacked by a mountain lion. he was with his wife and 2 toddlers. He was cuttin wood with a chain saw when it attacked, he used the saw to buy trime for his family to get into the car (safety) He was amazed at how little damge the saw did when it hit the lion. They did finally get the lion, and destroyed it, as it attacked search dogs.

I have camped and watched black bear. Hiking also. Safety on the trail from animals and deviates.

Yes, you are right...the law varies by state, and there in lies the major problem, IMHO. You might be perfectly legal carrying in your home and neighboring states, but illegal somewhere else, so you need to study the laws.

As an example, and I know this is the extreem, but it is never legal to take a hand gun into Canada, but you can have one in Alaska.

Most states have some kind of local org that will help keep track, always check in case things change.. Where I live we have Kentucky Coalition to Carry Concealed, Inc and they keep an updated map of friendly states and links to the law for those states when available.

This is also a good link, if your state doesn't have a site.. www.carryconcealed.net
stay safe.

I had a CCL but let it lapse after a few years. It's just so uncomfortable. In most states you can have a gun in your car or trailer. That's good enough for me. Being able to haul your peice into WalMart is just not a big deal for me.
I have found that good sense and a cell phone is usually better protection.

Two Sayings

1. God made men, Sam Colt made them equal

2. It's always better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6





Seriously though, to inject some more confusion into things; some states allow open carry but not concealed. I know NC for many years, and maybe still today, wouldn't recognize the CCW permits of any other states, but you could have the hogleg laying on the dash in plain sight and that was perfectly legal. You could also have Sam Colt strapped onto your hip and as long as it was in plain sight, it was legal. No permit required.

Another point....if you're worried about predators that have more than two legs, you better not look at anything less potent than a .357 magnum. I'd move right to a .44 magnum. That's another topic though.

There's a book that costs about $12 or so that you can buy that lists all the laws of all the states. They update it every year. I think it's called "The Travelers Guide to CCW" or something like that. Also go to packing.org They used to have all the data on there and it was updated frequently.

I like .44 magnums. Usually bring one along. Never had to use it, but it's there if I do. I like to camp in the boonies. It'll stop a black bear. A Griz would laugh at it. Depending on where you're going...get the right tool for the job. A good rifle is better than any handgun.

This thread will probably invite all manner of flare ups....


take care,

Those are great quotes, you should post them in the favorite sayings/quotes thread if you haven't already. My hubby Steve wants to install a holster type setup in the armrest of the guacho to carry our firearm. Is this legal since while traveling the AS is our home. We live in Calif.

Mary, California law changes daily. This is an area you'd do well to research yourself or get a competent legal opinion.

Here are the actual statutes (current, I believe).

12020 PC et. seq. covers concealed weapons in California.

I usually have a hand gun handy in my trailer when I travel but this year I'm planning a trip to BC so I'll leave it at home. In it's place I'll buy a large canister of pepper spray to carry. I think sprays are legal in Canada but not 100% sure. Anyone know?

Bear spray if marked clearly on the can is legal in Canada, but other sprays are probably not. We have taken bear spray to Canada and are always asked if the can is marked as bear spray.

Thanks Gene. I'll make sure when I purchase it that is has a good label. I'm thinking Cabela's is the best place to pick it up. I have one a few miles from the house.

A polarized topic.

I have no intent to challenge the "right to carry" where it is legal to do so but I am going to suggest that protection from "critters" as listed in the orginal post is weak. If there is a comfort level that is needed then there are other alternatives .....
