I never heard of this hand signal...see below. Anyone else heard of it or better yet used it?

Thanks

This way (presumably) you for sure cannot be holding anything, and I guess (also presumably) that one would put their CCW/Drivers License/Insurance in between the pointer and middle finger of the left hand?

The sergeant did say that this is a bit of an older practice, and that not all law enforcement know this sign however he said it could not hurt.

Hope this helped.

Thanks for this thread. I was just wondering today that if, as someone without a CCW, I could keep a handgun in my glove. I don't have a holster since I don't carry but when I do have the gun with me it would be nice to be able to put it there rather than in the trunk like I have been doing.

Can the gun be loaded if you don't have a CCW?

EDIT: Never mind, I see above that someone mentioned the gun can be loaded.

I don't know why the 3 step thing refuses to die, it was never the law here.

One thing to remember is most officers still think there is a 3 step law and you may end up in cuffs til it's sorted out. Way back when I went to my CC class they included an article from a central Fl. paper. An attorney got pulled over, officer sees weapon, asks for permit, lawyer says I don't need one it's legal, lawyer spends 10 or so hours locked up, gets 60,000 dollars for wrongful arrest suit. I keep the copy of the laws in my car, just in case but an officer who doesn't know the law most likely will not read the law or debate it with you if he's convinced he's right, but you may get a big payday out of it.

All the employees at my local gun shop have a loaded firearm on or around their center console. Many keep it within easy reach, concealed by a small towel. All our law enforcement cares about is if it is in plain sight. I got pulled over in Jacksonville Beach with a desert eagle in my unlocked glove compartment; the officer pulled out the weapon, smiled, and said "There needs to be more Americans like you".

Nothing herein contained prohibits the carrying of a legal firearm other than a handgun anywhere in a private conveyance when such firearm is being carried for a lawful use.


I take it this means long guns (rifles & shotguns) are not a problem when carried in a private conveyance (car or truck). ???????

I also agreed you have to read the whole reference vrs selectively taking out what you think is all you need.


{This means the gun can be readily accessible as long as it is encased. An example would be for a CWL holder to have a gun in a snapped holster in the center console next to them. Another example would be for a CWL holder to have a gun in an enclosed container with a lid on ones lap. Both of these examples }


btw I got a kick out of the CCW-holder have to have a gun holster and in a center console example, man that was hilarious


jcrew one question for you, did you take a CCW class and if you did and your instructor gave you this erronous information, please go back an demand your money back.

Also pls do us all a favor and post his name/location so I can make sure not to reccommend any of my friends to him.

concealed weapons on military bases

Concealed weapons on military bases does any one have any information on the rules on this?
I was told that you could not! Any insight would be great.


Thanks

Doc

This is true. No personal weapons, concealed or otherwise are allowed on military bases. Checked it out before visiting grandson at Columbus AFB Mississippi 4/28/13.

Clarifying the conversation on the law

So, just to clarify and see if I understood this discussion correctly...

Is this correct? A non-CWP must encase the weapon in car.

A CWP holder does not need to encase the weapon, and can carry it on their person, in a belt holster, in the console/glove box -- wherever they want, since they have a CWP.

...and everyone needs to keep it out of sight, CWP or not. No open carry, not even in a car.

Do I have that correctly?
