    So far we have:
    -courthouse lockers
    -Hotel locker
    -Buried in the sand in the desert
    -Sometimes bus stations will have lockers as well
    -Perhaps Airports outside of secure areas.....
    -Mailing it to yourself or your next hotel

    What other possible solutions could we add to this list???

    Another often overlooked "storage facility" would be a pawn shop. As long as you're able to retrieve your firearms before the pawn ticket expires, you're good to go.

    Well, heck, I thought I was being helpful. The OP asked, among other things, could a firearm be transported into Canada and I said: NO.

    I'll try to be more helpful, here. As I stated, I live close to the Canadian border. Drop me a ring if you're coming up this way and I'll store your weapons for ya. Just leave some ammo, too.

  6. Definately don't "mail it to yourself". I think there is some federal law against mailing handguns thru USPS. UPS and FEDEX will ship them for you.
    Burrying them in the sand in a hoot. Unless you forget where you buried it. LOL.
    I'm sure a local pawn shop or gun shop would hold it for you in their safe for awhile. Even if it cost you a few dollars, it would be worth it.

    The Federal government annexes the territory in question. However if the said territory then becomes a state, we still need a favorable ruling in the McDonald vs. Chicago case.

    A bank safety deposit box sounds like the best for hand guns. It's none of the banks business what you store in it. You get complete privacy when handling your box.
    It's also not uncommon to place in select areas of your house, attic, basement, garage. Out of sight, out of mind. Most people that break into a house normally are in and out. Break in grab and go.
    Local gun shop also sounds good as well.

    Keep it simple, one day at a time!

    I used the pawn shop to store a couple of handguns in Las Vegas, NV. The guy was rather confused when he told me he could lend me $400 for my guns and I told him all I wanted was $20. I was more amused when the guy told me I had to borrow at least $50 to make it worth his while to store the firearms, pay his overhead etc.

    Actually I think this is a really really good idea. They are generally easy to find as well; Much easier than it would be to find a courthouse or something like that.

  11. I have been all around the world and I cannot think of any reason to ever leave this country ever again.

    My friends, please dont forget, Canada and Mexico are not strict gun states like New York or Massachusetts. If we make some reference to the second amendment in Canada or Mexico they will either laugh at us or ask us what the hell we are talking about. Please dont take any chances with your freedom.
