Carrying when part of your trip involves non carry area. Where to stow your weapon??
I have noticed a very frustrating part of carrying, and haven't noticed any discussions on this. (I'm sure there may have been, but I didn't see them -and others may have this question also) Here are 2 scenarios in which this issue could be a real problem:
1. You are out on foot (or on a bicycle) and running several errands for the day away from home and you must enter a place like: (the dreaded Post office) or other off limits place. Where does the gun go to wait until you come back? I don't think most people would trust chaining a backpack to a light pole with your weapon inside, unless (maybe) if it contains a micro vault, but that can be real inconvenient/bulky when on foot. Does the whole day have to be shot because of that ONE stop?
2. You are on a long trip (say cross country) and part of your trip takes you into Canada or Mexico. Where do you store your gun? Some say take it to a gun shop and "have it cleaned" (for an excuse to store it there) Any other ideas? Must we be forced not to carry during the other 90% of the trip?
