Re: Guns on Board

I take a conservative approach. I view carrying on board to be the same as carrying concealed. This takes the question of whether your sailboat is a vehicle, home, or boat, out of the equation. If you have a license to carry concealed in a state, you may carry it on your boat. Beyond that, the laws get complex and confusing. As I recall, the states with the most extensive CCW reciprocity agreements are FL. and VA. You already have VA, so apply for FL. On the ICW, the states you may have problems with are MD (There are essentially no CCW permits in MD resident or otherwise) and SC. I'm not sure about Georgia. check here

You can get a Utah CCW in an online course and it has reciprocity in 32 states. Costs like $65., takes hardly any time at all. Dont have to live in Utah or ever even have been there.

Re: Guns on Board

Can I take a licensed prostitute from the state of Nevada with a current IRS 1099-MISC filing, down the ICW? Can she "work" as part of a self contained brothel whilst aboard? Is a business license required from each state along the route, even if no shore privileges are awarded? Can she be confiscated during a USG boarding even if she's been declared? Must she be kept in a locked compartment when not in use? When is she considered 'loaded' vs 'unloaded'?


Now back to regularly scheduled programming.

Treat as "always loaded". Never point at something you don't want to shoot.

My firearms instructor was a secret service agent and federal air marshal and said the same thing... basically, you can fly with your weapon without declaring it if you place one piece in one checked bag and another in a different checked bag. Legally, when a firearm is split like that it no longer qualifies as a firearm.

Re: Guns on Board

Your firearms instructor us giving you very bad advice.

Playing that game could land you in prison. They could charge you with lying to a law enforcement officer, interfering with a flight crew, etc, based simply on constructive possession.

You really need to research things for yourself.

Being arrested or not depends solely on the LE persons point of view, not yours. Going to prison will subsequently depend on how much money you have for an attorney and how pissed the ADA is.

In a growing number of states, merely the possession of ammunition without proper registration is a crime. There are states where the mere possession of a high capacity magazine is a crime. In some states, possession of hollow point ammunition is a crime.

More research would be very helpful to you.

Best
