Photoshoot in state park with rifle...what do you think?

Ok guys, I would like to do a photoshoot with one of my rifles in a state/national park somewhere. I am wondering what all kind of hurdles I am going to have to jump to make that happen and not freak anyone out. Has anyone done something like that?

Should be no problem in a state park where hunting is allowed...

Or, be proactive and stop into the ranger station before hand so they are aware, that way you head off any phone calls of "OMG theres a guy with a gun!!"

Let’s see, there are 50 different states- all with different state, county, local laws, rules, and codes- that run the gamut from ‘bring whatever wherever whenever’ to ‘don’t even think about having a poptart chewed into the shape of a gun’.

Sure, I’ll get right on that.

Well, come on, his profile does say he's "somewhere in the U.S., London, or Australia."

So, probably not a good idea in a London park. Other than that, need a bit more of a geographic parameter ...

SilentStalker, the government already knows that you own guns, and already knows your location thanks to your IP Address. I would think such a senior member of this forum would know that we can't help unless specific information about where this will take place is provided. Until then, we can only speculate and say "check your local laws blah blah blah".

In which park do you wish to do this in? It makes a difference.

In the United States, the laws in National Parks can be VERY different than the laws for National Forests. In the SE, you should be good to go for state parks and National Forests, but as stated already, check the books.

Each state has their own laws governing what you may or may not do in a state park. National parks have rules park by park. Make it real simple and check the local and state laws. I would think anyone who travels would know that.

Pick one and check with the state authorities.
