Every CCW holder should be aware of reciprocity laws.

That applies to New York also. We have family in NYS & every time we head up there the same question pops into mind, what do I do with the gun. In NYS it is legal to have a unloaded hand gun in your vehicle only when passing through the state, one cannot stop for a visit or overnight if carrying a gun in there vehicle. Stopping for fuel along your route is allowed but once filled up keep going & get out of Dodge.

This is why we have FL residency and CCW.

I also recommend opencarry.org as a resource as well. Out west, I open pretty frequently. A lot of states allow it for nonresidents.

In Montana, we had one odd issue arise. We were boondocking, with no one else around when to really creepy guys in a truck showed up, and just started hanging out, within 200ft of our Airstream. Couldn't figure out why they needed to be so close. Alex was and JorDanee was outside, so I put on my belt and holstered my gun, and went outside and pretended to adjust something in the truck. They left within about 10/15 mins of me walking around outside with a gun. I can't pretend to know their intentions. They guys were in their late 30's, pretty scruffy, old Ford truck. But in my gut, something was certainly off about the whole thing. Just my experience.

The people's republic of NJ is the worst. Don't go there. I know a guy personally, was moving and driving through NJ. Had his handgun in his trunk, in a case. Got stopped, cops searched his car because he was honest about weapons. Guess what, charged with a felony for legally owning a gun. Because in NJ even though his gun was unloaded and the magazine wasn't in the gun, there were bullets in the magazine next to the gun. And that in NJ is a loaded gun. And a felony. Talk about having your life turned upside down.

We carried Doug's handguns into 47 of the lower 48 states....in their soft case, in a cabinet.

If one were to do something which prompted a police search of your vehicle, there could be a problem....but then, if they are searching your vehicle you are already in trouble.

Being law-abiding and never brandishing his weapon, over 46,000 miles in 6 1/2 years we didn't have a problem.

It's kind of like "what is in your cup" at a public campground that doesn't allow alcohol. Don't give them cause to ask, and you won't have a problem.

Common sense and discretion usually are sufficient.

That's all well and good, but some people are victims of misguided police. And some people are not aware of their rights. I was part of the Virginia Civil Defense League when I lived there. And you would not believe how many "law abiding" people would just let police search their vehicles if they asked without knowing their rights our understanding probable cause.

Police have to have probable valid reasons to search you vehicle. If they just walk up to you and say, can I look in your trunk, you have the right to say no. But what if you being "law abiding" in your mind and respectful agree to this request.

And then it's found you carrying that gun in a soft case in a cabinet is illegal?

Now you're in trouble.

Common sense isn't common. It's learned sense. What might be common sense to a nuclear engineer working at a reactor might not even be something you'd ever think of in the same situation.

So this all really boils down to the individual taking responsibility to be aware of each state's rules and taking proper precautions.

I had a Steyr GB while active duty. I sold it when I retired because with retirement I no longer felt a need to have a personal weapon.

It is nice to never have to be in places where the need for self defense is not statistically warranted, but that is not my reality.

It may be worth noting that neighborhoods where we might buy gas etc, can often look better from the interstate than their crime statistics indicate.

When I am in Las Cruces I never consider the need to be armed when walking around at night at my workplace, when I am in Little Rock I feel quite vulnerable at night without protection.

The thing about driving around in unfamiliar places is that a person never really knows what situation they have driven into.

I respectfully disagree. The consequences of having alcohol in your cup might amount to a fine or slap on the wrist. The consequences of having a handgun in a state like NJ means a felony arrest at the minimum. Two totally different things.

I bet the vast majority of the NJ politicians who support removing gun rights from citizens enjoy the safety of armed security.

Come on people. It's just not true. You (or someone in your family) is much more likely to die from a gunshot wound if you have a gun in your possession than not.

“guns are rarely used to kill criminals or stop crimes.”
Quote:
in 2010 “there were only 230 justifiable homicides involving a private citizen using a firearm” reported to the F.B.I.’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program. Compare that with the number of criminal gun homicides in the same year: 8,275.
Quote:
In addition to the thousands of annual murders, roughly 22,000 people die accidentally from a gun or use one to commit suicide.
Using Guns In Self-Defense Is Rare, Study Finds
Quote:
“Purchasing a gun may help enrich the firearms industry, but the facts show it is unlikely to increase your personal safety,” Sugarmann said. “In fact, in a nation of more than 300 million firearms, it is striking how rarely guns are used in self-defense.”

When I sit down and think about it I realize I am more afraid of gun laws on the road than of the bad guys.

Like Bold Adventure alluded to these incidents are quite rare but when & if they do occur having a plan makes a lot of since. I met an RVer some years back who told me a horror story about being accosted in the middle of the night while boondocking at a Walmart in TN. Two guys were trying to syphon gas out of tow car, he called 911 then cracked open the door of his motor home to try & get a look, the next thing he know he was in a tug of war with one of the thief's, fortunately he prevailed & relocked the door, the bad guys took off before the cops showed up. he did have a gun but not on him & if pulled out of the RV he would have been in a 2 to 1 fight with these guys. He told me he no longer boondocks.

Yeah, we all have our thoughts on this.

More men than I could count asked Doug early on, in casual conversation, "do you carry a gun in there"?.....because, they of course did.

Doug did have a CCP, too.

These were almost always fellow travelers at campgrounds, some weekend warriors and others who traveled around the country, like we did.

Not one time did anyone offer or suggest that that they or he should ship a gun home, or otherwise rid yourself of it, when in certain states in the US. So....what is practice is pretty casual, from my experience.

As for bad guys that look like good guys.....including bad cops that look like good cops.....of them I am intimately familiar, so no rose colored glasses here.

Common sense, discretion, seems to rule for most, from what I have seen.

And, having said my piece and not owning, carrying nor desiring to own or carry a gun, I'm outta this thread.
