    I haven't posted much on here yet, but thought I would today. I'm going to PA this weekend, and I don't have my NH non-res license yet, so I can't carry there. I've only been legal to carry for 5 weeks, but have noticed how ingrained it's already become, to the point that I feel odd going to a city and not being able to carry [legally].

    What do any of you do in similar circumstances? I've considered taking it, unloaded, to at least have in the hotel room. My wife suggests exercising my rights using a smartcarry... though I'm in no way advocating breaking the law (my own disclaimer there).

    I hear you.

    My daughter lives in California, I go through withdrawals everytime we go visit.

    But seeing my grand daughters is worth it.

    Looks like the NH license is the easiest approach. Also check www.packing.org

    Under the peacable journey law in Pa. you may be able to transport the gun with you and secure it in the room.

    In Pa. without a CCW you have no right to carry a concealed firearm. The only right you will be exercising is the right to commit a felony. Roll the dice, it will cost you three years if you lose.

    That's why I'm not doing it. And thanks for the suggestions... I'd checked out packing.org, and I think PA doesn't have peacable journey laws.

    Partly, it's just almost odd to me how quickly one becomes accustomed to something.

    Curt -- It's too late for this weekend, but if you expect to travel again to PA, their non-resident license is cheap, easy, and fast. PM me if you are interested and I'll explain how you may want to choose which county in which to apply.

    Personally.. I think there is a reason its called "concealed"

    Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6 has been my mantra.

    You have a right to carry a firearm wherever you go... It just so happens that it's not recognized everywhere. Important distiction.

    Peter Mancus' essay LIBERTY spells it out better than I can (especially while I have a migraine): http://www.billstclair.com/liberty.html
