    The guard went into his booth after all of us handed
    him our passports and our IDs which happened to be our drivers
    license too. He asked for everyones passport and ID.
    He had to know about my permit cause he didnt ask anyone
    esle in the car if they had a permit. He just asked me why I wasnt
    carrying a gun since I had a permit. It was a young man in his early
    twenties and we were passing into Canada by car to see the Niagara
    Falls. Dont know why this is so hard for some to believe?

    Sorry, then was this before the late 1980's when they began to restrict guns in Canada?

    No this incident happened this summer.
    you can bring some guns into Canada
    with proper paperwork and a fee for rifles and shotguns.
    Canada prohibits all handguns with a barrel length of 4in or less
    no exceptions

    I know, thanks, I have hunted in Canada. Glad to know your age range it explains so much about all each and every one of the posts you have made. Now, lets put this non-sense to bed.

    dont know if 4in rule still applies
    that law was from a few years ago
    Canada seems to have a lot of laws
    on guns you can bring in or own.
    how many rounds a gun holds is an issue
    how short the barrel is
    what caliber the gun is
    if it is for hunting or competition
    even self defense items like pepper spray seems to be banned
    unless it is bear spray. The guard asked the 3 females in the car
    if they had pepper spray. they al said no. Then he said come on
    ladies Im sure you have pepper spray on your keychains.
    Maybe this guard was more pressing than most with some questions
    but he didnt search the car

    dont seem how age has anything to do with my posts
    bbqgrill. So what I went to Canada this year. Laws change
    all the time. You bringing up someones age is a form of discrimination
    but yet so many cry out and make posts about how freedom should
    prevail. You dont sound much different than the liberal anti rights party

    Sorry, if your fragile 20 something ego (that has been teaching tactics for years) feels bruised. The same bruised ego that caused you to approach a van over words looking for a fight. By the way no one has called you a liar but, when you make statements that do not coincide with reality you have to expect to be questioned. As for age yeah, there is age discrimination but you are not part of the protected class I am. Going back to the start of this thread, several NC residents have challenged the fact that your CCW is tied to your DMV record. My opinion, for what it is worth, post autobiographical stories not novels.

    Peace,

    My autobiography..... I am 27 years old
    I am not in a "protected class" that some are in
    but in my mind discrimination is discrimination
    not just because the government's laws say whether
    or not someone is in a protected class.
    I am not a "certified" instructor but have taken
    a lot of people with me to my shooting range that have
    never shot a gun before or wanted to learn to shoot better.
    My Grandparents both served in the FBI in DC
    I was joining the Marines at 18 but couldnt because of a back issue.
    I used a gun in self defense at the age of 15 against a 47 year old
    "protected class" man that was choking me around the neck.
    I have been shooting guns/hunting since I was 8 years old.
    Own about 30 firearms. And I like posting about my experiences
    with firearms whether some people enjoy my posts or not.

    By using a different word you kind of did
    call me a liar Bbq CHILL. your first post to my
    story was signed incredulously yours.
    meaning you were in disbelief of my story.
    Im just saying since you like to be so technical about
    every little detail.

    Pull your car way off to the side of the road where the officer has a safe path to your vehicle. Put down the driver and passenger windows, and turn all the inside dome lights on. Put the keys on the dash and hands on the wheel with fingers up.

    In response to the OP...

    From your own experience you already know what to do if there's a next time... say something like, "officer, before I answer that question I just want to inform you that I have a concealed weapons permit." (or whatever you guys call it) No "blurting" or "yelling", just be sure those or similar words are the first you speak regardless of the question.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    judgement to keep himself out of situations that would require a display of his
    superior skills."

    The officer runs tags then it gives your name
    and info. The officer then runs your name and
    can see if you have a permit. So like I said before
    they are using your tags to see the permit.

    It's not connected to your car tags, it's connected to your driver's license. They made have run the license from the name/address on the registration.

    This applies to NC, when the OP and I both live. I don't know the OP personally...

Thus far, all my LEO interactions here in North Carolina have been good. Been thru a couple DUI/license checkpoints and have always informed and been thanked and sent on my way without any adverse reactions from the LEOs.
