Tired of the boloni of which states reciprocate with which . I know I can look up US Carry. Im a resident ccw in FL. I see that in my way Wisconsin which is a gun friendly state does not reciprocate wit FL. Open carry is ok even for out of staters . I dont care much for open carry.Minesota and Nevada are two other states I may encounter that dont recognize FL. You have the right but really you don't.Does the same apply to the freedom of speech? If its a Constitutional Right you wouldnt have to get a permit, just like a few states have.One nation under one flag with different rules.
Time to move to Canada..... crap nooooo

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

Way beyond my abilities. I merely strip it to the basics for cleanup

Well,

it is time for us to go get one of those online CCW permits from the state of Virginia.
That plus the one you have, should get us into any state we want to go thru.

I just left my little Ruger LC9S hidden in my Tourmaster Pants Cargo Pocket, Out of Sight, Out of Mind...

Never needed to go thru an xray machine, so who is to know?

I just know, that it felt comfortable to know that it was there, if that parachute was ever needed.

It aint going to be pretty trying to stop a drugged-out maniac, with no sense of pain....or remorse~
It wouldn't be the loss of property I would be worried about. Nowadays thugs don't hesitate to kill for a bloody pair of sneakers

And if it's a drugged out maniac, make sure you use quality ammunition like Federal HST Premium LE. Don't cheap out when your life could be on the line.

OP, Here is a handy reciprocity site for figuring out your travels. https://www.usconcealedcarry.com/travel/
It's really a shame that these things are so convoluted when there is a federal statute of 'Shall not be infringed" in place

As far as "why not leave it at home", my question would be why carry insurance on your ride? It's not like you intend to have an accident.

A very good motto that every scout knows......BE PREPARED

It must be from being brought up in Canada, but the thought of carrying a gun for personal protection never occurs to me. I guess if you were outback camping, you might want a weapon for protection. I lived in Columbia, Maryland for 2 years, worked at NSA and weekly had to drive the diplomatic case from the NSA down to the Canadian Embassy. They did tell me to leave a little extra space between me and the car in front when stopping at a light so you could escape if somebody tried to carjack you... Again, I never even thought about carrying a weapon when I was doing the weekly embassy runs...

I have owned a few firearms in my life, used to go to the local gun club to shoot with my dad and brother (starting at about age 12, I think). Shot several different weapons while in the Canadian Military, and usually stop by The Gun Store in Vegas when I'm there to shoot something I haven't shot before (got my wife shooting an Uzi and 9mm pistol one trip). So, I'm not a stranger to guns, just doesn't occur to me to need to carry/CCW. Not that I think that it wouldn't be necessary or prudent to carry in some locales, but just never really dawns on me until I see a thread like this. Before anybody gets started, I'm not trying to start a 'right to bear arms' debate, just making a comment.

And yes, CCW is not permitted anywhere in Canada, so be careful/aware when crossing the border.

I grew up in another country where guns have been a big NO NO. I havent seen a real one tlil I was just over 20 YO in this country. I was very scared of the idea that people may own them. My first experience shooting one was about 10 years ago. I was concerned that someone near me can turn around and squeeze the trigger and I would be gone in 1 second. After I got my first hand gun I realized that I feel safer at night when I hear a suspicious noise. Long time ago my little wife used to hide a butter knife under the pillow when I was gone away at work. She was alone with 3 small children and even thou we have been living in a good neighborhood she was scared to be alone.NOW the kids are grown up and on their own. Sometime the little lady is home alone at night but she feels comfortable. On the side of the bad is a Berretta that shes very familiar with.
Also I changed my view of the gun as being dangerous. If a guy on the road wants you killed either you are in a car or bike you could be gone in one second.( in a few occasions some people hit other cars head on ,intentionally.)
There are many ways to kill someone and the gun is just one of them.
Just like you, Im not making this a gun debate and know that common sense helps most of us stay out of danger. But sometimes it helps to have one around if for nothing else at least for peace of mind.

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

If Im just staying in my state, my IWB hoster isnt too uncomfortable on my bike, but if I had to ride through a state where my permit wasnt reciprocated, Id consider carrying one of those little derringer-shaped pepper spray launchers.

Ride it like you stole it, or leave it in the shed.
