L A,Taking my 5yr old grand daughter to Mickey world next week Wed and I will be adequately protected.
They don't have to know about it.
This has been of the prime target scenarios in my mind since 1993. It would be a very great emotional impact on the US, possibly more than the towers.Whatever the security guards are trying to accomplish by their examination of the bags strikes me as futile. If you wanted to carry a bomb in there all you had to do would be to carry it in your pocket. While I was watching one of the shows at MGM studio I kept thinking that this place was the Mother of all soft targets for any one with bad ideas.
TampaSsgt - I will be going up there this coming Wed and will provide feedback on Thursday or FridayL A,
Could you please post how your visit to Mickey World went with this?
Let us know what types of security measures you encountered. (ie: signs, metal detectors, body cavity searches , etc.)
I think many here would appreciate your advice on what to do and not do based upon your experience.
Thanks for the detailed info. :drinksOH BOY!!!!! . . . keeping up with a 5yr old at Magic Kingdom at my age was one major effort!!!! I was totally wiped out after 11.5hrs (9am to 8:30pm). What a grandpa won't do for the grand children!!
Carried my PX4 in a cheap Uncle Mike's IWB. No problems with printing or showing at any time. My kids never knew I had it under the t-shirt.
No issues at the gates. Only cursery bag checking. No metal detectors, No wands, and I did not pay enough attention to any signs that might have been posted at the entry points. At that time my grand daughter was demanding all my attention
BUT- I need to get something better than the nylon Uncle Mike's IWB. It chafed and rubbed in all the wrong places all day long!!!! I was carrying it cross-draw at about 10 o'clock. Due to right shoulder restrictions I am unable to draw from anywhere behind the 3 o'clock position. It has to be either appendix or cross.
I am currently considering the High Noon IWB tuckables as the next investment.
Just to clarify, my PX4 is my alternative on the body carry for such places where 'bag searches' will take place. My daily carry is an FN 5.7 in a Maxpedition Fatboy. Was not going to subject that bag to scrutiny at Mickey World, so it stayed home for the day.
Thanks for the detailed info. :drinks
So in your opinion, if someone is going to go to Walt Disney World, carrying concealed is not only an option, but can be done easily?
