Re: Weapon storage near Glacier national park

A few steps off of a trail, a zip lock, a handfull of leaves, and a perfect memory. Done and done. :iagree: This was going to be the plan but it turns out she has a relative near the border that I can leave it with. I did call the RCMP and there is no way to bring a handgun into Canada unless you'r...

Re: Weapon storage near Glacier national park

Regarding Canada and firearms: Restricted firearms are primarily handguns. While they are not firearms, pepper spray, mace, and some knives also are included in this category. A restricted firearm may be brought into Canada, but an Authorization to Transport permit must be obtained in advance from ...

Re: Weapon storage near Glacier national park

If I were in the same situation, I think I would call a local Sheriff's Office and ask to speak with the Sheriff himself/herself. I would explain the situation, emphasizing that I am LTC in Texas, and ask if I could store my weapon in the SO armory for however long I would be in Canada. I would off...

Re: Weapon storage near Glacier national park

I thought it was legal to carry firearms in a National Parks if you are properly licensed. Since about 2010. It is and I would like to carry there but I can't go into Canada with a handgun. Apparently Mounties frown upon that. Basically if we're that far north for the park then we'd like to go into...

Weapon storage near Glacier national park

My girlfriend and I are planning a nice trip through Montana in the next few months and Glacier National Park is at the top of our list. We also want to pop across the border for a day or two which brings me to my question. Has anyone traveled up there, thought about crossing the border and found a ...

Re: Forbus 1911 Holster

I had nothing but problems with my Fobus Glock 26 paddle holster and ended up ditching it. I needed Hulk like strength to get my gun out of the holster even though there was only passive retention. Fobus said it needed a firm, straight draw which was true depending on their definition of "firm" but ...

Really happy with my new White Hat holster for my P238 with TLR-6. P320 is in a Tulster.

It would be nice to be able to drive with an easy-access gun under the steering wheel or between the seats, without violating the law.
Agreed. I used to put my hat over mine but the sun had different ideas almost every time I did that.

They were posted for the Austin Marathon packet pickup. No metal detectors or wanding though
Thanks! I don't see them using them for a test either.

Palmer Events Center - Austin

Hey all, I'm taking the AFD civil service test and it's being held at the Palmer Events Center which is a City of Austin owned building that seems to frequently post 30.06/07 signs. Is it possible for the city to enforce these signs for a city test if they're even posted for this event? San Antonio ...

Re: HB 3016 - Holstered Car Carry for LTCs

If I'm not mistaken, this is amending the section that makes it illegal for someone without an LTC to openly carry a firearm in their car. Currently the MPA only allows for concealed carry in a vehicle for those without a license to carry. Incorrect. This amends Texas Penal Code 46.035 (a) which is...

Re: Do you ever open carry?

I still don't OC in San Antonio as there is a much higher likelihood of me running into someone that is vehemently against guns that has the time to ruin my day. Interesting point. I live in San Antonio, and I've never open carried, though I concealed carry most of the time. I've seen someone open ...

Re: Do you ever open carry?

I do occasionally and it's almost always when I decide to carry my 1911 since I've found no good way to conceal it comfortably. I still don't OC in San Antonio as there is a much higher likelihood of me running into someone that is vehemently against guns that has the time to ruin my day. The few ti...
