    Mass. can't be all bad.....you guys elected Mitt Romney as Governor. I'm a huge Mitt fan.
    Ohh, okay got ya.
    As for Romney I didn't vote for him...I've only been here going on 5 yrs. now. Deval Patrick replaced him just after I moved here.

    That my Permit does not allow me to lawfully carry on federal property, in schools (where there appears to be a lack of self defense capability when BG decides that the rules no longer apply to him) and that there is no way that I will ever be able to visit family in NY state while in posession of my, legally owned, firearm.

    Being mostly surrounded by states that we don't have reciprocity with forcing us to get non-res permits from other states. At least West Virginia likes us.

    Btw...obxned, you can come up a bit farther north, we don't mind y'all a bit. Btw, you can count our restrictions on one hand and have a few fingers left over.

    I'm pretty sure its been aforementioned, but I'll still say it.

    (In no order)

    -Having to disarm for certain places

    -That its a PISTOL permit, not a concealed WEAPONS permit. Sometimes I think I'd love to conceal something other than my trusty S&W or p3at.

    -The trend more and more towards "posted" places. In Va we don't have 30.06 signs, but theres alot of places with "No concealed weapons" or "No weapons" signs, its a trespassing offence. But still a criminal offense.

    -That I get paranoid when it rains because I don't want it to get wet!

    Although I don't travel all that much, reciprocity, complex TSA and airline regs, and inconsistency among state laws including the ones with reciprocity, all combine to make an out of state travel experience something that requires more research and preparation than necessary.

    Beyond reciprocity, the most frustrating thing I find is the present ammo shortage in .380.

    Comes down to everyday problems, that should trouble me more, but the reciprocity alters vacations and how secure feel when I travel.

    Finding a way to carry 100% concealed under the following requirements:
    Dress shirt--must be tucked in
    Dress slacks--must fit reasonably well.
    Must be able to remain secret for a full day under intense scrutiny by curious young females with wandering eyes, in an office type environment.

    That's tough! and Frustrating!

You have as much a right not to spend money and enter their establishments as they to to bar you from entering with a firearm. Do we really want the government to continue to encroach on our private property rights and tell us what we can and cannot do on them? I see a no firearms sign I simply take my money elsewhere.

    As far as tax payer funded public establishments like schools, libraries, parks, government buildings, etc.... they should NOT be encroaching on our right to defend ourselves.
    I tend to agree with that, especially since you added that last statement regarding public or tax payer funded establishments.

    The problem with private businesses, is that I rarely notice a sign as I walk inside because I'm usually engrossed in conversation with the people people I'm with when I enter a place. I simply don't look for them.

    I've also never seen people greeting everyone as they enter asking if they are carrying a gun so I don't worry about it.

    Maybe that makes me a bad person, but I've never done a bad thing with my gun, and never will.

    My wife asking: Is that a new gun? Is that a new holster? Do you really need to carry so many guns? Why to you have to buy all that junk? Isn't one gun enough?
    Other than this, just the ordinary limitations.
