I am going on vacation next week.  I will be traveling through various National Parks in Utah, AZ, and NM.  My understanding is a may cross reservation land on this trip.  While my GA carry license will be reciprocated in AZ and Utah, I am not sure how reservations generally treat firearms.  I am more concerned about being pulled over on the highway.  I do not foresee walking around town in a reservation.  Anyone have any experience with Res Police in this matter?

Thanks in advance

IM aztrooper, he can help. But as far as I know if I'm on a state highway going through, no problem. But the moment I hit a gas station or whatever, no go.

That is the way I understood it as well.  I have driven through quite a few of them while carrying, I just make sure I stop for gas before I hit the Rez and I don't stop until I'm through.

Pretty much it.  And you'd miss out on some of the very cool stuff like Canyon de Chelly, the Hubble Trading Post or the Hopi Cultural Center.

I believe the Navajo Nation respects AZ CCW on the reservation.

So no carry in these areas, but no issue with it unloaded in the case tucked away in car storage?   As in Res police just do not randomly try to mess with tourists via searches etc...  I am rather distrustful of any small town or underfunded area where the local govt needs extra cash.

... we recently did Canyon de Chelly and Monument Valley

Both are bounded by the Navajo Nation (Indian Reservation).



A sign at the visitor center says, and I paraphrase, "Contrary to myth, weapon laws on the Reservation are the same as the State of Arizona". I confirmed this with a local, commissioned Ranger. We elected to not CCW when hiking away from the vehicle or going into establishments, but peaceful passage throughout is completely legal. It goes without saying, be respectful of the people and land - don't give them reason to approach you.  Oh, and don't take pictures of the indigenous people without their permission

Navajo is one of the few (if not the only) one that recognizes state gun laws.

Also, no permit needed in AZ.  So if a wife or g/f without a permit is traveling they can pack as well.  Reservations excluded of course.

Many conversations with the Hualapai Tribal PD 2ndIC.
Don't do anything stupid with your gun, open carry or concealed, and they could care less.
