I am to the point that I do not travel without protection in my vehicle. Most trips are from Mississippi into Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, or Tennessee. I never check on reciprocity, trust Jesus, and hope for the best. Always carry my piece into my hotel room. Well, almost always. What do you all do?

Yesterday afternoon as I got to my ranch gate there were 9 or 10 Border Patrol and Cochise County cruisers with a car and cuffed persons in the ditch. Between the ranch and farm is 4 or so miles, last week a very crashed car flipped/rolled and was 25 or so yards in the cow pasture-- a chase that ended quickly.
To not have access to a shooter at any given time would be like having no insurance or concern for safety. I am 7 miles from the AZ/MEX border.
Years ago it was just a bunch of farmers sons crossing the border for work, now there is a very dangerous and evil quality to to situation.
Thanks Brandon you idiot!

What ever you do, do not, I repeat do not come to New Jersey with a hand gun. That applies to New York and some of the New England states. If you are passing thru carry your gun according to federal law to the T. Failure to heed this warning will cost you dearly in money and jail time. New Jersey does not respect your 2nd amendment rights. The Democrats{Commies} running the show there absolutely and positively hate you! An example of this is a man that spent 5 years in prison for being caught with a Marlin model 60 because the gun violated the assault gun ban for holding more than 15 rounds of .22's The kicker is they later removed all .22's from the assault gun ban list but the man still had to serve the remainder of his sentence because it's codified mandatory! New Jersey has ruined many citizens lives over gun violations. I since moved to Florida. Give us your huddled masses yearning to breath free!

To rephrase a statement by Clint Smith, "The purpose of a pistol is to fight your way to the nearest shotgun (Clint said "rifle"), which you should have never put down".

I am first and foremost a shotgunner. I feel the most secure when I am near my SXP, but my 1911 gives me much security when I can't be near the 12 gauge.

Rule #1 of gunfighting, is, “Have a gun”.

You are covered. Remember when the Korean store owners in LA got laughed at for having 30” full choke pump hunting shotguns on the roof of their shops to defend them?

The laughing seemed to stop after the first load of buckshot went down the pipe.

It depends on the state issuing the "carry permit" plus the "carry permit" will only replace the NICS background check in the state of issuance. Your location shows Alabama and Alabama permits are not a qualifying permit and out-of-state permits (even if qualifying in their state of issue) cannot replace a NICS background check.

I always carry in my car and bring it with me to the motel room. Discretion is the name of the game. Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

For me it depends which states I cross. I've done a transition from on me, to handy in the truck, to unloaded, to unloaded and cased. I suspect this is an era of a leo running an out of state license plate, and getting an instantaneous report of what the vehicle owner has for registered firearms. I don't know if an out of state felony arrest is recoverable. Simple solution, don't cross into or patronize some states unless absolutely necessary for a kid or grandkid.

And all this doesn’t even touch on what’s involved in visiting the grandkids in NY.

You have my deepest sympathy. I’m terribly sorry for your loss.

Amen to that, Ted. So sorry, FCF.

Texas now has constitutional carry. I am keeping my permit for the sake of reciprocity.
