In the very early stages of planning but was wondering ?? Im in Kansas And was thinking of maybe taking a light wheeling sight seeing trip into Colorado or possibly Utah. Since it will be just me, my 8 year old son and his mother is it impossible for me to take any protection along on the trip ??? And no I dont have a CCW :shaking: not yet anyway

I never go on travel/camping trips without "protection". I don't have a CCW, either. I just keep it unloaded in a push-button safe under my seat. I have a speed-loader in a separate compartment of the safe for the ready. If I get pulled over by a cop and he asks, I'll tell him the truth. Most cops don't bother asking or are pretty cool about it if you're honest and have a clean record.

It's not exactly like this one but similar:

Worse case scenario, as the saying goes: I'd rather be tried by twelve than carried by six.

edit: my Jeep gun is just a cheap snub nose .357. That way if it gets lost or confiscated - no big loss. You don't want to lose your $800 Sig

No problems with the crossing of state lines and such ???

If you don't advertise it, who's going to know? But that's just me. You can check on NRA's website or Google State statutes about traveling with firearms.

I never had any problems. I have a CCW now but interstate laws can be pretty loose if your not staying. I would keep it unloaded and locked up whenever you may have a run in to cops. When I had to transport in California I believe the ammo had to be stored in a different place then the gun and the gun had to be locked up.

Do a little research to confirm this, but I believe the law states that you are allowed to "transport" guns when traveling, meaning you can have a gun in your vehicle because you are transporting it, but every states laws or a little different on how it must be transported, so you will need to check each states laws, here is a link I just found that should help you out

If you don't have a CCW, then don't expect any sort of allowances from other states. CO will honor the CCW of Kansas. BUT, without such you would need to comply with their non-CCW laws. I don't know what those are, but it might be something like "pistols have to be locked, out of reach, and stored without ammunition" - which would make any such handgun completely useless in the purpose of defense.

That being said, I've traveled all over this beautiful country, cities, backwoods, and wilderness, and haven't needed a gun. Surprisingly, the only place I ever feel I need a gun is where I live.

Would have no problem keeping it locked up. Atleast I will know its there if needed. Some reason the movie "Wrong Turn" keeps coming to mind LOL :laughing:
