I've been debating on carrying while on the road. (even though it wouldn't exactly be legal) there are some bad areas out there and I want to be prepared. Any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.
That has been my approach and experience with every large commercial vehicle I have ever stopped. Only one that ever went bad had high quality meth in a couple hideaway cans in the cab. He was drinking Mtn Dew but had two Dr Pepper cans (not cold) in passenger seat.havasu said:I agree with Nuk on this one. Most or the truckers I stopped while on patrol I just assumed were carrying, so all my conversations were held away from their cabs. I didn't ask if they had a weapon in the cab nor did they confess to having a weapon. I will add that generally the truck driving folks were very good hearted and very seldom received anything but a warning from me.
Depends on the state. some, like NJ, require the gun to be in an actual trunk or compartment not readily accessible by a passenger, slide locked with a cable lock and the ammunition in the cab secured.Would it be legal to have a gun in one place and a loaded mag in another or would they need to be locked up?
