    I'm an old geezer who used to live in Indy. Had to move to South Carolina to get work. I lived in Indy from 1979-2007. If any noncriminals live in that city without a gun and a license to carry, they are trusting to luck every time they leave their homes. 7 times during the 28 years I lived there having a gun on my person saved my bacon.

    We'll be down 3/17 for the 1500 gun show, hoping to bag a good deal on an AR and reloading components. Then the Supercross race later that night!

    Already got the room 1/2 mile from Lucas Oil reserved and tickets in the safe.:D

    After the 1500 check out Murphy's Steakhouse on Keystone for dinner. It's close to the Fairgrounds and has great food for a good price. You can check out their website to see the menu and get a coupon you can print out. http://murphyssteakhouse.com/
    Of course being St. Patrick's Day they'll be busy.

    COOL BEANS! Thanks for the heads up.

    Any suggestions for something good (and inexpensive) closer to downtown? The plan is to be at the show when it opens and wander around there until noon/1 o'clock. Then head downtown and check into our room @ The Westin and parking the truck for the rest of our stay. Then letting the boys swim, getting something to eat, then walking over to the stadium and the races.

    Most of the good places downtown are not inexpensive. You might try BW3 for wings, Hard Rock Cafe, Rock Bottom Brewery, or you can always hit the food court at Circle Centre Mall.

    Is it true that the "Supercross" is not a standard motocross? But it's more like a "Quasi-Moto" cross?

    This really concerns me. I am originally from Decatur county but go to iupui downtown. There is a law that says that I cannot carry on campus... So I am extremely limited on when and where I am able to carry. And with other folks putting comments such as this one makes me want to demolish the no weapons on campus law.

    College campus violence is becoming a serious problem. And to disarm the potential victims is stupid beyond belief. Several states have recently enacted legislation to allow permit holders to carry on campus. Indiana is pretty much favorable to gun rights, so I expect in the near future there'll be some legislation to that effect.

    I certainly hope for an attempt, but expect that the furor raised by the various groups of idiots will prevent passage.

    Check our state law!!

    As of July 1 2011 you can carry ANYWHERE so long as you have your permit.

    Only exceptions are federal buildings or a building housing a court room.

    I am a college student as well and you can bet your *** my PF-9 is along for the ride....discretely!!

    You might want to check a little closer; I know that the state fair and certain areas of airports are still prohibited, and I'll put dollars to donuts that schools are still on the list.

    Idk. It looks kinda touchy there. It says below that that if you posses a firearm on school property that you commit a class d felony..... You can bet your *** I ain't gonna try it if I have a chance of getting charged with a class D felony. Thats some serious prison time. I will definitely look into it though.

    Where do you go to school FMJ?

    Notice it says "Exemptions from chapter"...Sec. 1. This chapter does not apply to the following:...(3) a person who: (A) may legally posses a firearm.

    I my way of thinking (reading) i carry a legal lifetime ccw, therefore i am exempt from the chapter, as i may legally posses a firearm. This wording was all part of the new laws that went into effect 7/1/11.

    You can err on the side of caution if you so choose. Its your choice to make and i wont argue with your choice.

    I, on the other hand, choose to err on the side of caution and discretely carry my PF-9 and make damn sure i make it home to my family from class every day. Concealed is just that, what they dont know wont (unless you have a gun/other weapon and threatening harm to myself) hurt you/them.

    Where i go to school is a matter of national security ;)

    (not gonna advertise that on an open, public forum. When i advertised i am packing on a campus filled with uber liberal 'tards! 1 rent a cop on duty per each campus (pretty substantial square footage) does NOT leave me feeling very well protected!) ;):D

    Ok so I looked into this.....

    If you notice right after it's says may legally posses a firearm it says "and" this means that you must also apply the line immediately following it. Possess the firearm in a motor vehicle that is being operated by the person to transport another person to or from a school or a school function.

    I'd suggest you reconsider your choice of carrying on a campus.

    again, i am no lawyer and it looks like you could be correct...


    But i shall reference the cliche judged by 12 as carried by 6...with all the killings that happen on campuses...i think i just may err on the side of caution.
