Getting caught carrying without a permit is a great way to make sure you never get a permit. Follow the law. It is not hard to get a permit unless you live in one of our communist states like Californina or Illinois. I always research gun laws of states before traveling to them. I hate leaving my gun behind. But I do not carry illegaly. My carry permit is too important to me. If I am going to spend time in a state that does not recognize my colorado permit I do not bring my gun. I am talking about if that state is my destination. I would use a lock box to travel through unfriendly states on my way to a friendly one.

You will have a problem carrying onto the post at Ft. Stewart. Other than than, unloaded, in a locked case complies with the Federal Peaceable Journey Act, which trumps state laws.

I'm a previous full-time RV'r and have traveled about 30 states, including some very unfriendly-gun states and always had a gun in my tow vehicle and in my travel trailer, strictly for the protection of my wife and I. I agree that sometime you just have to take the chance if you value your life while on the road, which I do. I've carried daily, 365 days a year, for about 50years, and only the last 5 years with a CHL. Never a problem, thank goodnesss. I always do my very best to maintain a very low profile and conduct myself as a gentleman, so I won't be asking for problems from leo's or anyone else. I'm not advocating that you break the law, I'm just giving my opinion. Stay safe.

Its such ashame that the right to defend yourself traveling across the states entails going through unfree states that don't recognize the basic right of self defense. My pistol won't do me any good locked up and unloaded in a case if I need it.

That is why most of us here on this site carry. It is sad that every states has different laws concerning what and how you carry.

The government passed all these laws that we are force to obey yet a criminal does not. How are we able to protect ourselves from the forces of evil when our hands our tied. Sometimes we have to break the law to keep ourselves and our family's safe.

I am not telling you to break the law, I am not saying that I have not broken then law, yet when it comes to protecting my family there is another saying that comes to mind, one that I believe in.

"I would rather be judged by 12, then carried by 6!"

Be safe on your trip and please tell your brother "Thank you" for his service, from one old soldier to another.

In LA your vehicle is an extension of your home. So you're safe there

An interesting tidbit for you. When you are driving the RV local carry laws apply, But when you are parked for the night or parked for camping your RV is your domicle/home.
