Going to St. Louis this weekend...

I'll be going to the Forest park concerts and I was wondering if this is a no-carry zone since it will likely attract a crowd of 5000 or more? The way the law reads to me it should only apply to sporting arenas but I thought I should probably check.

Also if I take the bus from the hotel to the park can I unload and take it with me on the bus?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Hell no. Carrying on a bus in MO is a felony.

Take a cab, and call the organizers and ask what the expected crowd will be.

MO no carry signs require that you be asked to leave and if you don't you will be charged with trespassing.

When it comes to public transportation, MO law is very strict and definitely would not recommend carrying on any public transportation (bus, Metro).

The person limitation is for the Stadium capacity; not the actual crowd size.

As others have mentioned' don't carry on the bus!!

Otherwise, enjoy the show!

I JUST moved back from STL to Wichita and had lived in STL for 8 years. We loved living there.

That being said.... I carried everywhere I could. The town is nice but you will want to simply be "aware" of your surroundings. There are lots of places in town that are GREAT, with very low crime, even.... but some of those neighborhoods are only a few blocks from bad neighborhoods.

I carried anytime I was in Forest Park or ANY large gathering in public, out in the open. Forest Park is so beautiful .... I'm sure you will agree! The only times I WASN'T armed was when I was having a few drinks. Obviously the pistol stayed at home those evenings. As far as carrying there.... the most anyone could do in a place like that is tell you to leave.... but I don't think you will have any issues. I personally knew LOTS and LOTS of people who legally CCW'ed in STL. No prob.

As others have said, stay away from the bus with your CCW. Take a cab! They are much nicer anyways.

HAVE FUN! Its a nice, FUN town!

Why do I carry a 10mm?
