I have a couple places I go that handguns period are not allowed.. hence I dont carry. In both cases, I avoid areas that may be of issue and am usually with a decent sized group most of the time. Not an easy appearing mark..
Thank God, the states where I vacation recognize my Florida permit. I won\'t vacation outside of the South for this reason. Drove to Texas a few years ago to pick up a new pup. Was legally armed 100% round trip. :kay:
Unfortunately there is little reciprocity for our state due to ccw age limit of 25. (Still don\'t understand how they came up with 25.) So I generally leave it at home if its not legal. I check the state laws and carry a knife if I can. If I am flying and don\'t want to risk checking my weapon and/or losing it, I have been know to buy a temporary kinife at the city or place I\'m vacationing at. Other than that standard awareness and tactics for self defense.
I have not carried on vacation if I am going by plane. If I go in my car, I carry legally, if allowed or something else (knife, baton, OC, etc) if not. If I drive to California I won\'t carry my gun but will probably have a tire knocker, axe handle, crowbar or maybe just a big ole stick
I depend on my brains, and my CCW when on vacation. Since I don\'t travel to states that I can\'t carry in on vacation, that\'s no biggie. For work related travel, what the evil states don\'t know can\'t hurt me!
I travel for business mostly and have no say in where I go. So I research local laws on knives and that is about it. Because I am subject to go from one place to another and while one may allow me to possess firearms another may not. so bringing a gun is rarely an option. I also travel internationally anout 1/3 of the time. Also no guns and rarely knives.
So I rely on:
Knife or other improvised weapon
Hands if necessary
