Now I know that different states have different laws pertaining to the subject, but as I read the OP's question I would not think he would have much of a hassle.

That's what the law says. However.........

Re Rifle

Folks, I did not mean to raise a subject unfavored by the forum. Overriding any interest in traveling with firearms is the phone call I received from Dave Smith and Alan Sheley of Eveland notifying me that my Scamp 16 Standard will be delivered by the first week of May 2015! Itching to get out there!

As you likely know, there are lots of opposing opinions when it comes to fireams, all of which vary a lot themselves. As long as folks keep the conversation civil, there is some valid and useful information that FGRV owners can garner from others here.

Sounds exciting, Charlie. You must be on edge, waiting for that day.

For wahoo, I have a nice rod and reel setup. Fishing with a rifle would be hard work!

Often I find it hard to find a good place to transport my squirrel gun. It's fairly large in it's case.


Actually the easiest way to transport a rifle is flying. It's surprisingly simple, you check like luggage more or less.

Send a message via Yahoo to Darwin Maring
ScampSmith: You R correct that is why I prefer to keep it unloaded and in a case hidden in the camper and ammo somewhere else hidden. Out of sight.
Every year I purchase an updated "Travelers Guide to the firearm Laws of the fifty states". Traveler's Guide to the Firearm Laws of the Fifty States | Gun Laws for the 50 States
You may find that it is not legal to bring a firearm into a state. You may find that you can transport a firearm through a state. You may find the requirements for securing the firearm is different for various states. I take the updated Guide with me when I travel.

Canada: I have been told that you may be allowed to transport a Long Gun through Canada from Lower 48 to Alaska if it is for hunting. Not possible to transport into Canada for protection. Peper spray for humans not allowed in Canada however Bear spray is.

Be safe and not sorry. Check the laws B 4 U go.

There are people who think nothing of traveling while in possession of illegal items (drugs, automatic knives, lasers exceeding 5 mW, whatever). At least the rifle is legal! LOL.

Don't bet on it. City laws trump country laws, county laws state laws, state laws trump federal laws... don't mess with the Feds. In Portland, Oregon just try to take any firearm onto Federal property (Post Office, Federal courthouse and surrounding area). I KNOW that's what wasn't asked by the OP. Just don't assume. You know what THAT says...

Re Rifle

Donna D., The subject of your comment is the very thing that prompted me to begin this thread.

It is illegal to carry a firearm into a US Post Office anywhere, not just in Portland.

I only posted so folks don't assume... and we know what "assume" means.

Just be safe and be lawful. There isn't one law, in many states that fits everything.

How about them 49ers?

Re Rifle

Sorry to say ,after a day of research, that it would not be a good idea to bring a firearm with me on my extended camping trip. I'll be boondocking in state and federal parks (firearms No No), staying more than day in private parks (firearms No No). It's not as much fun using a borrowed gun at a firing range.

Totally up to you.

Personally, I think you'd have no trouble. In private parks, all they can do if they find out is ask you to leave. And anywhere you go, how will they find out unless you tell them? I don't believe that local firearm laws can preempt the state's law (I'm sure it's true for concealed carry, so it's hard to imagine it being different for locked and stowed guns). National parks now follow the state's rules, too.

There can be oddball situations... like a few years ago in NM I learned that, even though open carry was legal in the state, it was prohibited in the NM state parks. But unloaded and locked away? It would take a really strange set of circumstances to land a person in trouble for that, I think.

The use of one's own rifle for target practice at various locations in the country, as a form of recreation, is a valid one.

Donna is 100% correct about no one law. And while many people keep a firearm in their trailers, if there were an incident whereby you ran afoul of some local law, you would likely beat it in court......but would the hassle be worth it.
