    Although, growing up in Phoenix with a hunter dad our weapons were always out and available-rifles, shotguns & pistols. We knew not to touch them. Of course, this also makes your weapons easy to get to for bad guys also. Now I have a safe (or two or three) that I can open half a asleep in the complete dark in 5 seconds with loaded pistols -shell in chamber so get educated about current technology.

    One thing for sure-even spent casings can get you in trouble in the warped sense of law in Mexico-this scares me because there are often spent casings rolling around in the bed of my truck.

    I go shooting a lot and always check my truck carefully before entering Mexico. I have never had a problem with knives in my car, they have questioned me at Federal check points but that was it.

    Just crossed back into the USA about 90 minutes ago. When we stopped in Gila Bend my buddy popped open a console under his arm rest area and removed the 2 handguns he had concealed under there. I asked him "what the heck" he said he forgot them going in Friday afternoon and just thought it was better to not say anything. Apparently he has done this many times over the last 20 years. I on the other hand almost had a stroke.....I try to color inside the lines of life whereas he chose to ignore the rules. I have been in his SUV around a 100 times and had no idea that area he had the guns in even existed.

    His getting caught and shipped to Mexican prison is a matter of time, likely hastened by your tip to those officials who peer into this sight now and then.

    Taking a fire arm back into the US is a crime even if you have a US permit

    Firearms and Ammunition
    Firearms and ammunition not used as props and not brought into México with the proper permits from both the U.S. and Mexican governments, are subject to restrictions and import permits approved by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF). No import permit is required when it is proven that the firearms or ammunition were previously taken out of the United States by the person who is returning with such firearms or ammunition, and that they were registered before departing the U.S.

    Baseball bat....the combination of letting the RP cops ( one I know checks the forum) know you have a gun stash and the stopping power of that shitty little pistol would just get you in more trouble especially if you really ran into the big bad wolf...
