Default Gun Laws for boats/State by State

FYI, anyone who wants to know what the gun laws are pertaining to their state can go to two different sites. The second, sponsored by the NRA is a little more user friendly than the first site, sponsored by the ATF.

This is something that those of us who do carry gun/s on board should check out.

ATF site: http://www.atf.gov/firearms/statelaw...tion/index.htm

NRA site: www.nraila.org/gunlaws/

I have a concealed weapons permit, and will usually have a handgun somewhere in my vehicle or boat unless I'm going to California.......

I've had a concealed weapon permit for over 25 years. I never go anywhere without my Baretta .40 loaded up with "Black Talons" with 3 spare clips.

Back in 95' my then wife and I were traveling across the Okachoebee Waterway (spelling?) and just idling along in our 242 Formula, twin small blocks. Two guys in a bass boat went by us about 50 mph and came back. Obviously VERY drunk, asking me if I wanted to race. I just said no, we're enjoying ourselves, have a nice day. Then one started brandishing a pistol. My ex wife passed me one of my toys low so the fisherdrunks couldn't see. An AR-15 with twin 30 shot banana clips taped together. They kept getting close slurring about racing, and finally I just held the AR up and they got the message and took off as fast as they could. About two hours later we passed them fishing and I just waved and they flipped me off so I just blew them a kiss.

Nothing can ruin a fine day of boating faster than a bunch of drunk redneck fisherman. (no offense meant to the responsible fisherpeople on this Forum)

Sig Sauer P245 on the boat, in the truck, and on me everywhere I go as long as I'm not leaving the state. If you've never fired a Sig you don't know what youre missing.
