Travel Safety Suggestions
I have been informed that I'll be flying to California for business. I live in NC where I exercise my right to carry. A normal day would have me carrying my P3AT, Benchmade folder and a Serber M4. I'm not sure, but I doubt I'll get thru the Airport with these items on me.
So, what can I do for a week in California?

Pray, keep your eyes open for potential trouble while there, feign sickness before the trip and get them to send someone else, pray.

Road trip, anyone? Not much help other than that. Sorry.

What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

You can't carry your gun, but you can have a knife, even if it's just a folder.
OC always works too.

If you go to L.A.: Hit DisneyLand, Universal Studios, and Rodeo Drive. For the FREAK show hang out on Hollyweird and Vine.

I lived in L.A. my whole life and have always lived in rough neighborhoods. Here is my imput. The city in cali your going to isnt really high in crime but its known for being full of hispanic gangs. (fact not my opinion) Most will leave you alone if you leave them alone but should you look like an easy target then besure you have a cellphone, running shoes (which wont help cuz NO one can outrun a crack head!!) and a nice knife! Ohh and YOU CAN still travel with your gun, just have your bag checked in at the airport, you can still fly with your firearm, just not in a carry on bag. Then when you get there open carry where you think you might need to? i dunno but i dont think youll have much of a problem if you stick to places you know.
I carry because I care.
