    If you need an address in VT to ship to, please let me know. I know what you're facing, surrounded by MA, NY and all other states nearby. I live in SO VT, and basically don't carry any weapons anywhere else. But here?? Whole different barrel of apples. Let me know if I can help.

  3. It's perfectly legal to travel with your handgun through NY. It must be locked and unloaded. Your final destination can not be NYS. Passing through the state is fine.

    On second thought, maybe a trip to Idaho would be a better option

    As a (involuntary) resident of the People's Republik of New Yark, I would advise you to be EXTREMELY cautious in taking anything like a firearm through the Soviet Socialist Republik. Traffic stops can and are made for no really good reason. Your firearms may be confiscated and you can be arrested depending on the political leanings of the local DA. Should you decide to pursue a legal route you will be out thousands of dollars to have the charge (eventually) dismissed at the appellate level but there is still no guarantee that you will ever get your firearms back. Ship them to an FFL closest to your destination and don't try to take them through the state.

    Wow...sounds like you've been stopped a few times....for NO REASON.

    To the original question of this thread, I'll say it again... I'd stick with the gun(s) locked in one case, ammo and unloaded mags in another locked case. In NY you are not required to notify LEO, so if there is no suspicion, there is no probable cause for a search. Do not stop to sight-see or for lodging (I believe gas and/or food and rest room stops would be OK). Just do the speed limit and you shouldn't have any problems.

    To take it one step further... I've been a life-long resident of NY and have driven the I-90 for business and pleasure for most of my adult life. That's a lot of years. I can't ever recall anyone, including out of state vehicles being pulled over without cause.... so if you give them no cause, they can't go on a fishing trip! If you have a sedan, keep them in the trunk. If you have a SUV, keep it stowed in the rear, inaccessible to any of the passengers...out of site and inconspicuous, just in case you are unfortunate enough the have a flat. The troopers will pull behind you and put on their lights to alert other traffic & I've seen them chatting with the driver and/or occupants(many times actually smiling). Don't give them any reason to suspect you are transporting weapons. Have a safe and pleasant trip through NY. It's actually some pretty country...not all of NY is like NYC.

    NYS is like Communist Soviet Union... NJ even though they have a RINO governor is like Czechoslovakia (Of the Same time period). The next time i visit relatives in the GARDEN STATE I might have to only carry a Nine round magazine.
