Dr. Joe,
Your Sheriff's dept. is right on when it comes to the Aerko product. It is great stuff.

Right to carry

I love BobbyW's comment about training! That is the key to issuing a permit to carry a firearm. Here in Montana we all carry from time to time but to get a concealed carry permit you have to take classroom instruction from a certified instructor that delves into when you can use deadly force along with range instruction, safe handling, storage, Etc. My philosophy has always been: If "right to carry" permitees were allowed to travel on airlines "Packin'" there would have not been a 9-11!

Good one Montique...
I bet you could make a Lib hyper-ventilate with those words alone.

Dr. Joe, Don't try to take Mace into Canada either. The last time we crossed at Watertown NY they ask if we had any Mace. That was the first time we have been ask in the 8 years I have lived here and crossing the border several times a year. I have heard that wasp spray will work as good as mace but I don't know.

Nope. Much as it's made out to be, it's not a Lib/Con thing....It's about common sense. And the right's backed by the now-bruised U.S. Constitution.

But let's not start this one rolling.
Simply stated, "Let's Roll!"

Angry Permit

Permits are, I do have one, a bunch of crap. If you have to shoot at someone your gonna be in deep doo doo. Even if your right, probably going to jail till you post bond and it could take months to get cleared through the court system.

Having said that, I have carried a weapon in my RV for 25+ years and never once had to point it at anything but a target. I have been trained, know how to use it, and would not hesitate. I hope the time never comes.

I called Illinois State Police and asked them about bringing a fire arm from Georgia to Illinois. They told me Illinois honors most states gun laws. They said as long as the gun was unloaded and the amunition and the gun were secure in a locked compartment and properly stored I was OK. He gave me a couple of examples. If I had a rifle the bolt needed to be out. If I had a hand gun the clip needed to be out and the chamber open. The ammunition needed to be in a box or container. He did say Cities have their own laws in Illinois. He said that if you get pulled over by any city police where there are strict gun laws I could go to jail and have my guns confiscated.

I know somewhere I read that in one state off duty police officers who are on vacation will be arrested if they are carrying. I want to say the state is California. I really don't remember.

It would be very easy for me to get on my soap box about the right to carry arms, but I won't. I have taken safety classes numerous times and was a serious hunter when I was younger. Every honest hard working American should have the right to carry a gun.

Just curious, we just got back from Yellowstone. What about carrying "bear pepper spray" into Canada?

I don't think most people that purchase this item (mainly for backpacking and camping in bear country) would think about the consequences of transporting that across into Canada. Would that be a problem? (It's supposed to be much stronger than the stuff used for self-defense.)

Switched from a handgun to a shotgun.

Seems like a lot of controversy over handguns, state laws, in plain site, concealed, etc.

If I should ever be pulled over and asked if I have a weapon and answer a shotgun in the closet as opposed to 357 mag under the seat the LO may be more understanding between a shotgun for hunting as opposed to a handgun. I also carry my lifetime hunting license.

I may be a fair shot with a handgun on the range but in a real situation I would trust myself with a shotgun over my 357 mag. any day.

I used to carry a .45 LC revolver, but my bud now has taken over the security detail.

Check post #18. I have been looking around and what I found you can open carry in all but 2 states and a lot of people are having cook outs and bbq's and everyone is carring a gun in the open. I think that is a good idea as that is the way to keep the right to carry a gun.
