    Not to mention the nice little DOT law about not carrying a weapon in a commercial vehicle. It is actually a crime to transport a personally owned firearm in a vehicle other than a personally owned vehicle, you own your own cab, go for it, if not, better to avoid federal charges

    Sorry INccwchris, that urban legend has been thoroughly debunked in another thread.

    This. As a truck driver I have looked into it. If you find the statute please pass it along. But as far as I can find, both state and federal DOT regulations are silent on personal firearms. Commercially, ie for sale, is likely very different. With personal firearms, state law rules.


    caubry89, I completely forgot about delivery business policies. The two businesses I deal with are closely related, so I don't have to worry about other companies. Lot's of companies regulate firearms by delivery personnel. They tend to treat you like an employee.

    PHMSA Interpretation #06-0165

    Aug 24, 2006

    PHMSA Response Letter

    Aug 24, 2006

    Mr. Richard B. Loden Reference No. 06-0165

    3959 Chestnut Avenue

    Concord, CA 94519

    Dear Mr. Loden:

    This responds to your letter regarding the applicability of the Hazardous Materials Regulations

    (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171- 180) to the transportation of a loaded personal firearm lawfully

    carried by a commercial motor vehicle operator while in the performance of his or her duties.

    Specifically, you ask whether the transportation of

    such a firearm is prohibited by the HMR under the “forbidden explosives” clause in

    173.54(f).

    The answer to your question is no. Unless otherwise specified in 173.54(f), a personal loaded

    or unloaded firearm lawfully carried by a commercial motor vehicle operator is not considered in

    commerce and therefore not subject to the HMR. Under this scenario, a commercial motor

    vehicle operator who carries a personal firearm while in the performance of his or her duties is

    subject to local or State jurisdiction regarding such matters. This response has been coordinated

    with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

    I trust this satisfies your inquiry. Please contact us if we can be of further assistance.

    Sincerely,

    Hattie L. Mitchell

    Chief, Regulatory Review and Reinvention

    Office of Hazardous Materials Standards

    173.54(f)

    More good news. I started Roadmaster this past monday, went today and took and passed the tests to get my class A permit. 2 weeks from friday I will finish schooling and get my class A CDL. A few recruiters have came in and talked to us and I have been doing my own research on companies and I have found out that my first year some companies can start me out making $30,000-$60,000 depending on what I am willing to do(at this point I am willing to do most anything). I will keep everyonee updated as to what I figure out and decide.

    I have several family members who've working in the trucking industry... one thing that my uncle was quite adamant about was to not rush out and buy your own truck. He said that a lot of his fellow students were quick to buy their own rig. You won't make as much money but at least you won't get started out the door in debt having to worry about the truck payment coming due during slower times.

    The business is brutal for owner operators right now. Freight is low, and people are undercutting bids to get work. Let someone else eat that cost. Congrats on the permit. The test was not too bad in NC. A little practice and common sense. Good luck.

    Thanks everyone. I never planned on being an owner operator, seems like to much hassel. There is a dedicated route with U.S. Express I am hoping to get if there is a position open when I get my Class A that will start me out making $60,000 a year after I finsh the companies training. It would allow me to be home every night and I would only travel into Michigan and West Virginia. Even if I can't get that route right away I don't mind going over the road if I have to. I will have my applications for U.S. Express, Werner, and Prime in on monday and hopefully start getting some pre-hire letters back so I can figure out who I am going with. I did get behind the wheel of a semi today for the first time. My instructor said I was doing great ( backing up with those trucks and trailers isn't the easiest thing at first that's for sure). I will be sure to update as more goes on and I decide what I'm doing. Again thanks everyone, and have a good weekend.
