I can carry the Firearm ANYWHERE in the US, Current Law Enforcement.

And after 17 years of being shot at in Jacksonville it's a habit. Might be silly but it's like a security blanket for a 2 year old.

I may try to ship it but there are US regulations about shipping firearms unless your an authorized dealer. Big Brother is getting into everything.
You can't carry one anywhere if you can't carry one on the train. Seems to me you ought to be able too.

I consider anyone carrying the gun to be the threat.

Why not just lock it in the side bag or top box when you load the bike on the train? I don't think they will be searching your bike....

In my opinion you'll be more at danger from RVs, pickups, minivans etc while riding the BRP than from anything that could realistically happen while camping.

Huh? Are you saying that law enforcement would like to see more people carrying guns? I know it's probably going to vary by location, but from things I've read over the last year or so, that wouldn't seem to be the case.

Read your post, you said "anyone carrying a gun" that would include peace officers, military and law abiding citizens.

I've been on the road for 30 years and camped from Maine to the Yukon and I have never needed a gun... so, yes, the BRP is safe. My 9 year old saw her first bear in the smokies camping this summer and at no time did we think we had to shoot it.

I'm very pro-carry and a shooting sports enthusiast and hunter... but except for my 5 years in the Army, I've never needed a gun.

I would take other posters' advice and be more concerned about Winnebagos and, for some reason, blondes in Mini Coopers, wandering left of center. You will need delayed apexing practice way more than a gun on the BRP

Beware of copperheads and rattlesnakes when you venture into the woods. Especially sunny spots in otherwise cool areas. They're out at all hours. I saw a really beautiful Eastern Diamondback taking up one entire lane once in the middle of the day and my worst encounters with copperheads, including being bitten, have always been in the fall.

Have camped off the BRP a number of times and have never had a problem. I did wake up at 6 AM one morning to five elk walking around the campground. They actually chewed on a couple tents nearby.

Have not seen any bears or snakes for that matter, but I am sure they are around and am always especially careful about the snakes.

Great place to ride and camp. Have fun.

Yes I can but the problem comes in when you get on a mode of mass transit (train, bus, airplane ect) while of duty. They have the right to place rules and restrictions on people while in the vehilce.
