    As far as I know, you can legally carry an unchambered weapon on you every where in the state except for a National Park, of which we only have one; and government buildings. Whether it's legal every where to be concealed or not, like Goat mentioned, I do not honestly know.

    Truthfully, I wouldn't do it everywhere as folks (especially city) get jumpy when they see you walking around with a gun. Business's would likely kick you out or ask you to leave, you'd get harassed by local law enforcement, etc. But I've walked into rural stores and bars during deer season with my Dad's .22 mag on my side an nobody raised an eyebrow. Pick up trucks with a rifle in the back window is still common in the same areas. But since the new laws about guns being locked up or you could be held liable in crimes committed with them, it is slowly become a thing of the past.

    I think of all the times I have been pulled over (I own a red 70's muscle car, it happens a lot) I have only been asked once if I had any weapons. They seem more interested on how many tickets I have had (which is zero) and if I have any drugs on me, which is coincidently the same amount of tickets

    Talking

    Man I love Idaho, the last free state in the union! I carry
    concealed and overt. When the LEO's pull me over, they receive
    a message on their computer that tells them I'm armed. They
    are courteous and professional and I am a "grown up",
    pro-social contributing member of our society.

    All tacticly aware LEO's assume thier contact is armed.

    Did'nt a high court just issue a ruling that the right to be
    armed predates the foundation of the US federal government?

    Here in Idaho we do not carry because we have been given
    permission/dispensation from "the man". We carry because it
    is an inalienable right given to us by GOD ALMIGHTY and then
    reaffirmed by the US Constitution.

    Ok, I'm off my rant. But seriously, you have to know where
    your rights and authority come from.
    Nothin but love

    Anytime you want to start a thread on cars, I'm there, too. See, I've been a rabid car nut since I was born. The gun thing has only been the last 15 years or so.

    Yeah, I've skinned the bloody heck out of my knuckles on !@#$% inaccessable header bolts for decades.

    Yep, putting headers on my LT1 was a real PITA. I enjoy my gun and my "modern muscle" car, of course I can't take my "modern muscle" car to ghost towns, but I can take my gun! And, I have finally made it to Nevada, so that means I am now able to take my gun with me and not worry about the BS California laws.

    I'm nearly 47 right now and you could pull my fingernails out before I would go through some of that "fun" again.

    Ahh, nothing like pulling the left motor mount and lifting the engine to change spark plugs on my big block Mustang...

    Or removing the heater plenum (and throwing it as far as possible btw) to get to the last header bolt on my 455cu olds...

    Or (To prove how strange I really am) removing to transmission tunnel to pull the trans on my Buick-powered Datsun truck.

    No wonder I have mental problems.

    Question

    Brian.........You're remark about having to lift the engine off the motor mount in your Mustang sounded real familiar. I had the same problem with my 67' Shelby GT500 Mustang, and got so mad about it that I sold it ($4000) and bought a brand new 69' Z-28 Camaro. Four Thousand dollars was a chunk of change back in those days, and I was a happy camper. If I had that Lime Green Metallic rocket today, I'd be sitting pretty. Who'd a thunk it?

    If I had preserved all that valuable sheetmetal instead of butchering it, and stored those cars away, I'd have enough money to retire right now.

    Ahhh, but the memories are worth a million bucks, eh?

    Sounds like a PITA like my LT1. No cherry picker needed for the LT1's plugs, but I did need to lift the engine to install the shorty hooker headers. I would have went with Long Tubes, but I was in the Socialist Republic of California. Didn't matter though, I went with all CARB compliant mods, yet it still wouldn't pass the smog test in Califorina, but I passed here in Nevada with flying colors.

    My 66 Chevelle was a piece of cake to work on, all the room in the world. I wish I would have kept it.


    Now its time to concentrate on the Durango since summer is coming and I plan on doing a lot of exploring this year. The stock height doesn't give me any room for error, so a lift and bigger tires are in order. I am new to 4X4ing, so I have some learning to do.
