check on specific carry requirements for the states you are rolling through and where you will be staying (carry as many and whatever kind i want in MO, 3 in AR and specific type pistol licensed for in TX). i recently drove to FL from MO and went around IL (I55 s to Tn) so i could carry on the trip Mo has different rules than FL and i tend to tell police the " i have a legal concealed carry in the small of my back, my wallet is....." when pulled over. i travel to TX several times a year as i get the chance and its a required notification there but not here. bar/restaraunt carry and what constitutes concealed (printing, wind blowing cover garment and such) legality of ignoring the nmo carry signs at a business, these can trip you up outside your AO. learn the law and you will do fine.
