I will be going to the local mountains for 5 days with 5 other people. We will be staying at one of these peoples vacation home. I have known one of the people I am going with for years, two others fairly well, and the other 2 not at all. I want to bring my Glock 27 just because I feel a little uneasy being in a place I haven’t been before under these circumstances. But I’m not sure if it’s a good idea. I will keep it packed well away in my suitcase, and obviously no one else will know about it. I just wanted some other opinions here on if I should take it or not.

With a name of "SexualChocolate", I'd carry a gun everywhere I went. Folks might start thinkin' you are looking for some of that Deliverance kind of action.

Carry it and wear it. It won't do your suitcase any good, and it will only help you if you are wearing it when you need it.

I'd carry.

Take It! Test the waters. Maybe you can plant the seeds of new gun owners.

Are you ashamed of it? Lebrew

Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it. Are there any recreational shooting opportunities in the area? If so bring something appropriate to that, but can serve double duty as a defensive weapon.

If you got it, flaunt it!

Then don't place yourself in that situation. If you think something is up, why in hell would you expose yourself to any danger? With that said, if you MUST go, take the gun, wear it and keep quiet about it.

Take it, carry it, conceal it if legal to do so. Out of sight, out of their minds.

I'm not worried about the people I'm going with doing anything. It's more about being in a different neck of the woods, unfamiliar surroundings. As far as keeping it on me, that would only work while I am in the house as I don’t have a permit to carry. Living in Californiastan doesn’t help.

THE BEST REASON TO HAVE IT!!!

I to am in CA, if i go to the mountains, im armed, no one with me knows. And if you dont have a good concealed carry rig, put it in a backpack, thats what I do. And I take my backpack everywhere since I can not afford the holsters I want/need.

I don’t take a shower or go to the bathroom without being armed in my own home. And I never ever leave home without at least one carry piece and an extra mag and my carry knife. For me a pistol is part of my clothing and I feel naked without it. I don’t know about you but I would bring it just incase. THISISME

pack it, and either keep it ON you, or with you. remember that just two years ago a janitor in Yosemetie cut the head off one tour guide and killed two tourists... shit happens and some people like to do e-vul shit in remote places.

Another vote for 'pack it'.

Haven't been too many bear attacks on Half-Dome or Mt. Whitney I would say. I did carry my Colt 45 up to the summit of Mt Whitney in 1987 and signed the book!

I carry a gun everytime I go on vacation, to and from work. It's always near by. I never want to be surrounded by the enemy again. Rambosky

Take it.

Never leave home without your medium bore handgun. Period.

Take it, legal or not. People ask me why I never leave the house unarmed. I always reply "I might snap. Can you imagine snapping and not having a gun to go on an insne killing spree with? Neither can I." McBalming

You are the first line of defense for yourself and your friends. Take the gun. You should also be packing a small emergency kit if you are going on the trails. Bears - NOT imaginary... Terrorist threats - NOT imaginary... Psychotic A*!holes - NOT hard to run across in this world...

bring it

Is it legal to concealed carry in Yosemite?Seems like I recall CC in NP to be a no-no.
Link Posted: 1/8/2003 7:49:58 PM EST
Bringing ANY firearm into a National Park, concealed or otherwise, is a no-no. Another vote for "pack it"
Link Posted: 1/8/2003 8:27:05 PM EST
Your in California, right? Don't carry would be my suggestion. Your in an anti gun state and if you use it Gray Davis will fry you. He loves the death penalty. CRC

I am not telling you to break any laws, but it is better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6, or eaten by a bear, or raped by a mountain man (Squeal like a pig!). I personally carry where ever i go. Sign? What sign? That one.... (I walk away from $200 in groceries in my cart and point to the sign) that says no guns? Oh, I better leave then. Not one person has ever Known that I carry unless I tell them. I go everywhere. of course i live in a free state where people point and say cool instead of trying to hand you thier wallet as the lay down on the floor.
