For the first time since I received my CHL I had an appointment at the VA. As I entered the grounds there is the "No firearms allowed on this property" sign.

Now I can either park off site and walk a few blocks unarmed or perhaps leave my gun at home but I still have just enough "child of the 60s" in me to choose neither option.

I parked and put my PT145 in a case and locked it in the trunk. And I will continue that policy whenever I go there. I know I have to watch myself because the feds have no sense of humor about these things but at the same time I won't leave myself defenseless.

Does your VA now have new steel fencing and gates around it like ours?
Some of the property is fenced but not all. It's been that way as long as I can remember. There have never been any gates.

Howdy,

I leave mine in the truck. On the days I go to the VA I do not wear a holster but I take it along with my gun and I leave them in yhe truck. After my visit I will put my holster on before I get into my truck and as soon as I'm off VA property I holster the gun.

I've been doing this for years.

Paul

A VA building is a Federal building. President Carter banned personal firearms from all Federal buildings and facilities in the 1970's. As a result, I can't carry to work or even have a firearm in my vehicle.

Not to hijack but a VA facility near my shop closed down recently. Arville and Russell roads cross streets in Las Vegas if anyone wants to investigate.

Not a problem. That's important news.
