    I don't think of my gun as the end all, be all, only form of personal protection. It's one tool in a box of many. As such, I don't let being able to carry dictate that much of my life. It's one thing to avoid a store because it's no carry, when I can go down the road and buy the same thing. It's another to say I'll never visit a state if I can't carry. If I have to go to/through a state where I can't carry, I just make sure to make full use of more passive protection measures like knowing my route, pre-planning stops for better locations, staying in more secure hotels, etc.

    Choosing to NOT visit states where I cannot carry has nothing to do with paranoia. Is has everything to do with where I choose to spend my money. At one time or another I have been in just about every state except for Hawaii and Alaska. I lived for over 60 years without carrying. I have a few "skills" in my arsenal besides my firearms. However, with the time I have left in my life, I choose to spend my money in locations that do not try to restrict my 2nd amendment rights! There are a whole lot more things to do and see in the states that recognize my OH, PA and NH permits that I'll never have the time or money to see to bother wasting time in the states that don't honor my permits. Just sayin.

    I travel where I please...whether it be to see family, or do what I want. I don't allow gun laws to affect where I go...

    I try to avoid non-CCW states. My niece wanted me to visit her in Chicago for years, but I said no way. I also avoid NYC and Mass. If I can detour around a non-CCW state I will even at the expense of more miles.

    In short, NO; not if I can help it.

    While I love all my handguns, I am restricted at certain times from carrying at work but will carry at any opportunity I can. My global mindset does not change depending on whether or not I'm armed and will take all necessary precautions regardless of where I'm traveling. I'm grateful to have permits that allow me to carry in several states but if it came to me working or vacationing in a restricted state I would simply leave my guns at home and take other methods of defense. I still remind myself that in all the places I've traveled I have never needed to unholster my weapon and retain it as a last resort, using the many resources that come before it first.
    I will never forget that I am an American, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.

    I'm driving through Arizona, where my CC is valid and California, where it is not. In California, I know to unload the gun and store the guns and magazines in a lock box that I carry in the car. In my hotel room I'll lock and load. But while driving around, I will obey the laws of California.

    Yes I do and I go to the post office and city hall, and on Base, and on school property as well.

    Not unless I can absolutely not avoid it.

    When we lived in Memphis TN and would drive up to Indiana to visit family we would go I-40 to Nashville and then I-65 up to Indiana. This rout added an hour to the trip but we did this to bypass Illinois. I will not even drive through IL if I can help it. I don't want to take a chance on having to stop for any reason and spend my money in that state.

    I try hard not to, but about a year ago, business forced me to fly to ILL-annoy. I only stayed there from about 10:00 PM one night until about 5:00PM the next afternoon, but I HATED being armed with only a knife.

    I live in Tennessee and carry with a TN HCP. My son lives in St.Louis. To travel to see him and my three grandchildren I can either travel through Illinois (no carry) or through Arkansas and Missouri (Carry). Problem is that the non-Illinois route adds 6-8 extra hours to the trip. At my age (68) that means another day of travel each way, with the incurring costs. The time saved dictates the Illinois route. I lock up my 642 in a safebox in the trunk, per Illinois law, and whiz through Illinois. It is the southern part of the state and all Interstate travel so I don't really worry that much about being ambushed along the way. I would rather carry, but I follow their laws.
