(Huffington Post)   When TSA officials tell you to check your handgun, listen to their advice. Don't try to hide it in a planter at the airport thinking you can just retrieve it when you return from your trip   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 62

Aren't handguns expensive..like in the hundreds of dollar range? Who ditches a couple hundred dollar item in a planter?

I usually hide several pistols in multiple planters throughout an area where I'm expecting trouble, so I can discard them as they're emptied and grab a fresh one. But maybe that's just me. Woo!

*SIGH*. This kind of shiat happens all the time. When I worked the ticket counter for an airline, I had a guy check a couple of guns for his hunting trip to Alaska. Not a problem. I had him open the case for inspection. There are rules about number of weapons per case, ammo storage, etc. Turns out the schmuck had his ammo in a belt that had been rolled up in to a plastic baggy. Ammo in checked luggage needs to be in either the original container from the manufacturer or in a clip. Since he had neither we told him he couldn't take he ammo and to call someone to come pick it up at the airpot. Well, he decided that he wasn't going to wait for this person so he left the baggy sitting on top of a garbage can curbside. Needless to say he missed his flight explaining himself to the police.

Concealed carriers are everywhere. They're all around us. Even now, in this very thread.

Most concealed carriers know that carrying in an airport is a no-no. It's the idiots like this that make all concealed carriers look bad. Most of the time, when someone is carrying, you don't even know it.

It's actually a good idea if you can do it responsibly. Who would carry an UNLOADED gun and why?

Depends on the airport, really. Taking it through security is certainly something that will earn you a beatdown, but before you get there it may well be perfectly legal.

A friend of mine once said that a gun should be treated like a penis.

* If you wave it around unsolicited, you get in all kinds of trouble
* You should keep it safely tucked away unless you plan on using it
* Causes lots of strife when used for its intended purpose

I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that he means that the only reason that someone would carry a gun is because they live in fear. It's odd to me, really. Arming yourself is just about the only reasonable safety precaution you can take and people will call you a pussy. I mean, I won't ride my motorcycle around Denver without wearing leathers and a helmet, but I've never caught crap for it. Quite the opposite, in fact. Not once have I said that I always wear a seatbelt and heard "LOL, what a puss, just don't get into an accident! Move out of the Thunderdome if you're so scared, retard!". Yet I decide that would rather not go out of my way to make sure criminals are better armed than myself, and suddenly I must be pissing myself constantly. It's a very strange attitude.

Because sometimes the bears try to eat you. You wouldn't catch me dead without a gun in CO, WY, MT and ID. Here in NE and IA, I almost never carry unless it's my morning walk along the river shoreline where the methheads roam...

I've been mugged, including beaten and stabbed, in broad daylight in the parking lot of a local mall. It's a place that many people have happily told me is "perfectly safe" and "why would you need a gun at the mall?" I will never allow it to happen again. I will never be a victim again.

2012-07-11 12:21:58 AM  
Fear? No, not here. Just common sense. I was camping in WY all last week. Dry as hell. Finally rained Thursday night. Told my GF everything was going to come out of the woodwork that night. Sure as shiaat did. 4am, bear outside the tent sniffing right at my face. Punched the dumb animal thru the tent wall, told him to shoo and went back to sleep. Wake up at 7am, still there, this time about 25 feet away from the tent. About 300lb young male grizzly, 2 years old or so, still too young to know to stay away from peeps. Gave it the scare of his life when I grabbed some downed branches and chased him out. No fear here, but the .44 on my hip sure helped. So next time you're hiking in Yellowstone, thank this liberal, gun toting redneck if you ever run across this bear and he runs away from you because I guarantee you, this one is never eating a human, ever.

I was thinking that, unless you have a concealed weapon's license, having a loaded gun on you is a good way to cause people to be a bit concerned about your presence.
