I achieved my goal, which was to be armed. I didn't actively give up my right to self-protection. My secondary goal was to not go to jail. I achieved that too, even when a detective saw the loaded shotgun and a shoulder holster for a 1911.
I would have taken the riotgun in any case, but I would have ADDITIONALLY taken a pistol if I'd driven into the state.
The bad logistics were due to my employer, they paid for all my travel and just gave me the tickets and such.
My point being, if you're going to drive a load of your own property into a state while relocating, there's not much of a reason to not bring whatever you want with you. Just know the laws and act accordingly. So no, not completely free, but not scared of what some dupe in a costume thinks to the point that I give up my rights without more than a wimper.
And yeah, sometimes we jump the rails here, but it's all good natured! If he does decide to go ahead and sell, I hope it goes well!
