    The dollar value is not the first thing that comes to mind. How about someone finding it and perhaps now it being a "piece" for some low life?

    I would be too worried about someone finding it, or seeing me doing something in an odd place from a distance and wondering what I was doing there and going to look after I drove off. I'd be a nervous wreck waiting to get back to it.

    If it was a government base didn't they have a guard shack or something? I mean you can go that far and say, "hey I've made a mistake, I have a concealed weapons permit and forgot to leave my weapon at home, do you guys have lockboxes or somewhere I can secure my weapon properly?" I don't know, but there had to be a better option than leaving it out unsecured like that, even if you felt it was hidden well enough.

    No offense, but to quote Barry Gibb..

    "Are you out of your mother-lovin' dope smokin' hippy mind??" :faint:



    I mean.. I guess you felt you had the situation under control and you know your town better than I do, but I think I'd have found something a bit more secure to do with it.

    I did have to do this once. I was carrying my Kel Tec P11 as usual on a service call. That day I got a call to the Toele Chemical Weapons Depot. Didn't even think about the P-11 till I was nearly there.

    I drove a few mile markers away, then put the frame and bullets under a flat rock about 20 feet off the highway. I was a bit worried about having the slide in the glove box, but figured "it isn't a gun", so whats going to happen.

    They didn't search the car. Hell, they didn't even search the car on the way out. I could have kept the mask and atropine pens.

    As for hiding a gun in a populated area, I would sooner disassemble it and take a brick to the frame and then throw the frame chunks in the trash than rely on a hiding place.

    I'm not sure what to say about this.

    I've done this with parts and tools for guys that work for me (stop at a mile marker on the highway and stash it in the bushes or a weird spot in town that normally nobody would look) but I can not imagine doing this with a gun no matter its value.

    What's the difference in someone finding a hammer and killing someone with it and someone finding a gun and killing someone with it?

    This of course is under the flawed logic that just because someone is able to, that they will.

    Some large bus terminals have lockers. The last time I was at the train station they had what looked like a metal detector and a guard at the lockers. I'm not sure it was a metal detector. I think a lot of luggage could set off one of those. I was picking up somebody and I haven't ridden Amtrak in years. I know no guns on the trains but I've never seen metal detectors at the station. But this was at the lockers which is even stranger. Does Amtrak use metal detectors now? The only bus I've seen with metal detectors is the one that takes little old ladies to and from the casinos. I guess they figure there might be a lot of cash on there.

    Thats a big negative... in states like FL it does not matter if the gun was HOT,Condition 3 Loaded mag or empty without a mag... it all carries the same over in the eyes of the law if its on you or in your private conveyance.

    I have heard a few good ones about having to stash, but until your in the situation you never really know what to do so best to keep yourself 100% safe from legal recourse, I like the old timer taking it down and stashing it 2 places.

    Unlawful storage of a weapon is a much lesser charge anyways if you get caught stashing depending where you live.

    To hide things in my car, not guns, just to prevent theft when it's parked, I bought a car without a sunroof. I then ordered the inside roof parts for car with a sunroof. It has a sliding cover. I put small things I don't want to have stolen up there and slide the cover closed. It might not pass a security check but most thieves won't look up there.
