Hello, Arizona High Roaders

I am starting a new job on Monday (1/20) and will be attending a two week training class in Phoenix starting Feb 4, where I know no one. I don't know what my schedule will be, but if anyone would like to get together that'd be great. Let Me Know.

To keep this firearm related I have an Oregon CHL, but as I understand it AZ doesn't honor it. Also I don't want to have my pistol in my luggage (duffle) as I don't want it to go 'missing'. Will I be able to put a pocket knife in my checked baggage or willit set off bells and whistles?

Hi!! :)
Welcome to Arizona. Yes Virginia, it's true!! You can open carry here. Just don't go into a bar or anywhere it's posted. I suppose you will want to go and shoot somewhere. I shoot at Mandall Shooting Supplies in Scottsdale. I'm usually there Saturdays between four and closing!! Are you moving here?? You'll love the warm summer days!!! (he he he) :evil:

How long are you planning to be here? Will you be here past your two week class?

Some friends and I usually try to get out into the desert for some plinking on the weekends I stay here instead of going home. We might be able to put something together.

Feel free to email me at

I am wanting to move to Mesa, Arizona east valley area and looking for employment there if things would just open up a bit. Cold here in the Chicago area. Got this phenomenon called windchill. :mad:

I was on an extended visit a couple months ago and loved it. Brought down some homeland security supplies and went shooting at an outdoor range which was a new experience because that does not exist up here. Open carry too!

Hello AZ THR'ers,

I now know more about my upcoming trip to AZ. I will be there 2/4 till 2/14 and then again from 3/2 to 3/14 for job training. I will be staying a the Garden Inn Hilton in Scottsdale and the training will be in Tempe. class will run 8 am to 5:30 pm Mon thru Fri and I will have the weekends free. I won't have much access to wheels as the trainees will be sharing rental cars 4:1.

If anyone would like to get togrther for food, drink or socializing PM me and I'll give you my cell #. It would be great if some of us could get together and with C.R. Sam to hear his "There I was, inverted at 10,000'....." stories!

Also is Shiner Bock available there? I have heard much boasting but never tried it.
