    Flying out to LA next week for a week's vacation.

    Trying to determine if it's worthwhile to bring my sidearm.

    What are your carry laws like?

    :confused:

    Why the heck would you want to vacation in LA?
    If yer gonna vacation in CA, I suggest San Diego, Monterrey, San Francisco or Mendocino. Anything but LA.

    Our hotel is in Long Beach, actually.
    Right across the harbor from San Pedro, which is where the Iowa is opening as a museum.

    :salute:

    We're planning on taking day trips to San Fransisco and probably the Hollywood tourist trap area.
    MrsHorty wants to see Lombard Street, the GG and Alcatraz Island.

    Thinking about the Redwood forest, but that's a long drive in a rented Focus.....

    All these road trips are why I'm considering bringing Bertha along.
    :cool:

    SF is pretty far from LA, you ain't gonna do that on a day trip.

    If you are not from California forget it. And I am pretty sure SF has strict gun laws. As in not allowed.

    Yea, I see that just about every-damned-thing is considered "concealed".

    They probably consider transporting a weapon across state lines by a non resident illegal as well.

    In NJ a man got 20 years because he moved there and before he unpacked his trunk went out to eat. He had a DISASSEMBLED rifle in his trunk under all his other stuff. He got pulled over for some minor thing as I recall.

    How did they convict him? The Judge ruled that the defense could not inform the Jury that he had no ammo and that the gun was disassembled.

    leave the gun at home......

    There is no way you can do a "day" trip from LA to SF.... To do Lombard street, the GG bridge and Alcatraz.. you will need at least 2 days and an over nigher. If you took the 6am flight out...... you get in at 7:30..... get the car and into the city by 9:30 10am. The last flight out back to LA is about 9:30..and you need to be at the airport 2 hours before. You may... just MAY get them in.... but not the redwoods... they are a day trip on their own.

    Alcatraz... book and pay for your tickets on line.. and take the first tour out.....AND make sure you dress warmly and in layers.....
