Hey guys, I think this is the right place for this post.
I'm moving to DC for the month of May. I have my MS CC permit. It is honored in the states I will be traveling through but not in DC.
I won't be carrying there obviously. But, does anyone here know the laws in DC as far as having a gun in the house? I'm really not excited about traveling with no gun at all.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

So, now what? I'm going to be there for a month. I'm driving 12 hours alone and I would greatly prefer to carry my pistol with me. I will be fine traveling from MS to there but what to do with it when I get there?
Take the gun into your house/apartment and lock it in a small gun safe.And remember DC has the highest murder rate in the country,Me I go with the tried by twelve vs. carried by six theory when I'm in DC. But that just me
As bad as I hate it I think I'm going to have to leave it at home. I think maybe I'll send my 1911 to SA custom shop during that time so I won't be tempted
Stay on the VA. side of the river and ride the train to and from work.
the above advice s the best.
If you must live inside DC, but want a gun for the trip back and forth, you could always drop it off at a gunshop near the border for a "cleaning". They'll clean it and keep it safely locked up till you get back to claim it.
Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)

Is it absolutely mandatory you stay in DC while there? If not stay in Virginia and commute into DC during the day.
