You bring the slide, I'll bring the frame, someone else brings a loaded mag.
Get the picture?

Doesn't work though if they use the federal definition of 'gun' to mean the serial numbered frame only.

I think to the feds, anything with the serial number on it is considered the "gun".
Most slides have serial numbers on them.
And yes, if a group of people got together it would be easy to piece a gun together from the parts after they got past the security check point and entered the courthouse.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

Some might say the same thing about folk who pack heat 24/7.

why not just cuff you gun to the seat post? Secure and can be accessed fairly quickly. I have only had to leave mine in the truck a few times and this is what I do. If they are going to get that gun they are going to earn it!!

My main CCW has the serial number on the frame, the slide and the barrel. I think given the current track record the feds would declare on all 3 pieces.

trying to get past a guard on a technicality like what the federal definition (or your interpretation of it) of a gun is would be a foolish losing battle...but i would pay to watch you try....

You might want to take that up with VCDL.

In NC, felony...no questions asked, those metal detectors would have been screaming and no weapons on the grounds. When you ccw you have to plan out your trips. The safe bet would have simply been to take it back home.

I understand why you did it, but could you not just put the frame in other place in the truck? Sorry, but I do not think that trying something like that was a very good idea.

Both my XD9sc and my G-23 have serial number on the slide and barrel.

I haven't checked the others because they are locked up.

PA law states that all county courthouses, as well as district justice offices provide a secure lock up for you weapon(s) while conducting your business within them. Just notify the security officer (usually a sherrifs deputy) that you are have a LTCF (license to carry firearm) and would like to store your weapon.
They will take you over to the lockers used for that purpose, you place your weapon(s) inside and usually your LTCF goes in there as well, so there is no dispute when you leave that you are the correct person removing the weapon(s). There are only a few counties that are not in compliance with State Laws pertaining to this. Most courthouses it is a routine occurance. Once you have deposited your firearm, you then go thru the metal detector and enter the courthouse.
Not too bad of a set up and prevents you from leaving your weapon(s) in your car where they may be stolen.
Good luck and always stay safe.
