Business trip...CCW ?

So here's the rub. Going to St. Louis for some training. It'll be at a hotel in the downtown area (don't know where yet).

So, for 2.5 days, I'll be in Missouri that has reciprocity with Texas. However, the last 1.5 days, I gotta drive to a small town in Illinois (and we all know about Illinois and guns).

I'm wondering to take the gun with me for St. Louis, then just bag it up for Illinois. Or not, because of Illinois?

Thoughts, y'all?

I'd break it down, and put it in the trunk for the short time in IL, but that's just me.

You could always just hcance not gettting stopped and searched, which is highly unlikely, but ut's not worth a felony to me.

Sucks we have to tip toe around and defend the right to protect ourselves in this country. I would take mine FWIW.

Yup. Was just reading the federal law. So long as I keep it in it's case, in the trunk with the ammo separate, I'll be ok in IL.

The one time I've ever had a "need it and not have it" moment was in East St. Louis. Avoid that motherfucker like it has AIDS.

Is that the IL side? Or at the river?

Again...still don't know which hotel the training is at. Morons put a class together and schedule it with a TBD for the hotel.

No, just West of I70 heading into downtown STL. Watch out for your cornhole, bud. (namely Cass Ave)

Looks like I'm staying at a hotel near the Arch. Just south and east of Cass Ave.

Whenever I've traveled I've always called State Patrol of the state I had questions regarding this sort of thing.
