    Check your local laws.

    In a car (in some states) you can carry as long as the firearm is either locked, secured, unloaded, out of reach of the driver or some combination of these. Some states require the clip/ ammo be kept a certain distance from the weapon sometimes secured or locked. Often this means the firearm can be locked in the glove box unloaded with the clip in the backseat.

    Since a bike has no lockable area out of reach of the driver and no real way to separate *** and ammo, you'd fall under the personal carry laws. Unless you have the *** in a locked case in your backpack (and probably even then) it's considered carrying a concealed firearm.

    A side note here. When riding you will not be able to stop at post offices, librarys, schools, any federal building or bar. ! Many states have laws prohibiting the carrying of a concealed firearm while in a bar or consuming alchohol.

    This thread would be much more interesting were it to discuss about the mating habits of the elusive Mongolian were-vole

    This thread has been done to death. We should just sticky a bunch of threads that keep repeating, a la advocacy & safety forum.

    Your search - Mongolian were-vole - did not match any documents.

    Suggestions:

    - Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
    - Try different keywords.
    - Try more general keywords.
    - Try fewer keywords.

    Until about 6 years ago I used to carry a *** everywhere, nowadays I just don't see the point - you have more of a chance of getting your ass in a crack from the law than saving it from some situation that is about as likely as lightning striking. First and most effective rule of self-defense - be aware of your surroundings and avoid trouble when you can see it coming. When you can't see it coming - brains and cool are your best defense. Now that I have opened my big mouth, I'll probably get my ass shot by a road-raged commuter on the way home.
    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    If your local carry laws permit it, cool. If you’re in a dangerous area all the time, try to move someplace else. Otherwise, there are less lethal means of protection with sprays, etc.

    If the firearm is not concealed, then it's not concealed carry.

    And no, I don't carry.

    Geez atlpirate....you are off to a good start in the cycling world. You are not a fan of roadies, your nerves are starting to get to you in the traffic and you want to carry a ***. Remind me to never cycle in Atlanta.
