I don't want to hijack this thread, but I still have a few questions that are pertinent to the topic.
Still new to all this...
I will be traveling with my 11yo son in a few weeks through (from KS) New mexico, NE corner of AZ, SW corner of UT, and through CO. The route will take us through a few different tribal lands.
I have no problems with respecting tribal law and not CC'ing on tribal lands. I don't plan on sticking around that long. Maybe a few picture stops, that's it.
But, from what I can see, I would be well advised to NOT carry a weapon AT ALL on their lands.
This is not practical for a lone woman and boy traveling/camping alone for 2 weeks.
I am having a heck of a time finding ANY information of a concrete nature and of a recent enough timeline. Contradictions are everywhere. And some nations don't even have any information at all. It seems like the law depends on which way the winds are blowing on a Tuesday on the top of a specific mesa at high noon unless it is a leap year with a full moon on the second Saturday in May......... You get the point.
So, my question is this:
How do I correctly store my weapons (2 handguns) so as to minimize any issues? Should the guns be stored in a separate locked box locked in the truck cab and the magazines and ammo in a separate locked box locked in the bed of the truck??? (I have a Chevy Avalanche and bed is secureable to a pretty good degree)This is usually a method that is good enough for feds.
Thanks for the help!
