I wonder if there is anyone from Ontario Canada that even knows if you are allowed a cancealed weapon if you are not in the military or police. I have no idea myself.

I don't know either but on that note, in the US active military are not automatically legal to carry in public. They need the same license as civilians. There are also some communities that do not permit off-duty police to carry.

My sons Christmas gift was the apparatus and stuff for reloading his newest acquisition a .45.

I don' t think so. Contact your local Chief Firearms Officer for more details.

Why is "need" the only reason for doing something? Most of what I do isn't a need, as I am sure is the case in your life too. That said, my nephew's has been used in several occasions to put down injured deer by the road, which is then donated to the local food shelter.

There are many states that use 'Castle Doctrine" in situations like this and have a no duty to retreat clause like Texas!

For my husband it depends where we are going. If we are traveling by car for a vacation it comes with us (especially if we are traveling at night), camping, if we are going into the city for a game it comes with us but stays in the car, and just various places like that. He by no means takes it with him everywhere he goes.

I had all the equipment for a hunting rifle I used to have, but that wasn't something I shot all that frequently. Factory loads really improved right about that time and I ended up selling everything off. If I wanted to shoot something other than a .22 all the time, I'd probably have to gear up again

I guess I was trying to figure out the why of it all. Is the States or certain States that dangerous to travel in? I am now getting worried about visiting the States. I was thinking of going on a cruise out of New Orleans but have heard how corrupt the police department is there so I am really not sure I will do it. I thought I would like to see it but the danger just seems so large. Especially after hearing about the guns. Yes you can go anywhere and there might be danger but this thread is really worrying me.

I would venture to say that 90 percent of he US is incredibly safe, 9 percent very safe and 1 percent kind of a war zone. Most folks who carry are worried about that 1 percent, or about the 1 percent spilling over into the other areas.

You will be fine in New Orleans there are just areas you need to stay clear of. I kind of think you have the impression that it is the wild Wild West here in the states which is very far from the truth!

Just like everywhere you could go there are shady areas. That is just common sense.

God bless Texas. Don't even think about breaking into our homes.
