Firearms

Has anyone asked the question about traveling with a firearm. I understand that ea. state has it's own rules and regulations about this but was wondering if anyone has a list of what ea. states rules are. I've gone to the NRA's site and have mixed info..... just wondering.

Look at Packing a Gun, Mister. I just knew the string was 'out there.' Otherwise it's not my preference. Simpler is gooder -- and less attractive.

HF 214 for Law Enforcement

The former thread on this subject exhaustively covers the issue, both pro and con. You'll find it um... enlightening reading... This thread was timely, however and reminded me that:

For those of you in law enforcement who hadn't heard... As of July first, President Bush signed into law HF 214, a bill authorizing nation-wide concealed carry privileges for active and retired sworn officers with proper credentials from any local or state law enforcement agency. It was fought in Congress as a state-rights issue for many years, but I believe that given our current national security situation, it was passed this year in recognition of the contribution to public safety that all off-duty officers make even when out of their respective jurisdictions.

The decision to carry a concealed firearm off-duty carries a huge responsibility and burden that most law-enforcement officers choose to bear. If you know a cop who carries a firearm and handcuffs off-duty, and who is ready to take action when necessary on behalf of you and your family, take a minute to thank him/her sometime. He or she will appreciate it.

Roger

I can be wrong here, but it only 5 years ago I was up on it a little since I was all over the country. Only 2 states I never been to. Anyway what i was going to say is that it is legal for anyone over 18 to carry with them a black powder weapon. Don't Laugh There are 6 shooters that are black powder and to tell the truth, I would rather be shot from a 22, 25, 380, 38, or a 9mm than a 50 caliber ball out of a black powder gun. Naturally I prefer not to be shot at all and this includes a BB gun.

Anyway for no hassels with the local law you can carry a black powder gun.

Thank you all....

Thanks for the help..... That website is all ya need. To all the pro gun people out there. I really have mixed thoughts about even bothering bringing a gun along. I've been shooting for a while, have taken training at the Sig. School, and shoot monthly.
I just fugure I got enough to deal with on the road and don't need to worry about having a prob. with a gun (anyting can happen).
I understand the deal with needing it ( I figure what are the odd's???), I carry a clip pocket knife (trained on that two). Mace on my keychain..... and have my Boxer, Mickey who can lick anyone to death. Thats just me -you do what you want - I just have a patern of "if it can go wrong it will".

I'm trying to leave the 1st. of Nov. to travel for the yr. I've been thinking of trying to make it to Mexico. That in itself makes it pretty unrealistic of bringing anything.

You full timers.... what do you think.? I also whould love to shoot in states that you can. I've never been (thats why I'm going) to places in the mid-west that have ROOM. So I thought I could have my gun's shipped to a FFL in the area and keep it there as long as I stay in that state. But what a pain in the ass that would be.

A side note.... I've been coming here since last yr. when I bought my first A/S.... and I can say I couldn't have done as much as I have (still have alott to do) in rebuilding it if it wasn't for this place. It doesn't take long to figure out who has there **** together and who is just plain happy with life.
So, I'd just like to thank ya all. I've taken something from evey post. A great influx of idea's -thought's.

See ya on the boards....

Another source of info.

Another source of info is the "Traveler's Guide to the Firearm Laws of the Fifty States". ($12.95ea)
See www.gunlawguide.com
This whole issue is complicated to say the least. I have a CCW license issued by the state of Mo. Some states grant reciprocity and some don't. Even if a person has a license to carry a weapon in his home state, he would have to review the laws current in any state he is planning to visit or even travel thru.

I consulted the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy... you know, the one with "Don't Panic" on the cover? All it said for Earth, though, is "Mostly harmless." <sigh>

In response to JohnG: If you really believe it, try wearing your black powder revolver through airport security. The only difference I am aware of regarding black powder guns is that there are special hunting seasons for them and they can be purchased through the mail. Other than that they are firearms with the same restrictions as any other in many, if not most jurisdictions.
