Thread: What should I expect?
I'm heading up to Maine for vacation this coming August and would like to know how the carry of firearms is received in the Rangeley Lake area. I have a Pa. LTCF and a CCW for Utah and want to make sure I am good to go in the fine state of Maine. Also, any unusual prohibited areas I should know about would be great. Pa has state wide pre-emption so the laws are uniform throughout the state. What about Maine? Thanks for any help in this regard.
So the following is wrong information?
Maine has reciprocal agreements with the following States for resident concealed handgun permits:
Delaware (March 13, 2009)
South Dakota (May 18, 2009)
Louisiana (June 25, 2009)
North Dakota - Class 1 Permits (June 7, 2010)
Wyoming (June 7, 2010)
Arkansas (June 21, 2010)
Pennsylvania (November 1, 2011)
Michigan (November 9, 2011)

Prohibited areas would be places licensed to sell alcohol for on site consumption that have signage at the door saying no guns allowed. (I've never seen such a sign in Maine). School property (k-12 and colleges). Courthouses. State property in Augusta. Federally restricted property. I think that's all...
I know that oasis in the old port has such a sign restricting weapons. I've never seen any other one though.

No worries, guy!
Better to be safe than sorry. So restaurants that serve alcohol are prohibited always, or only when there is signage?
Also, are there any members here who have specific knowledge of the Rangeley Lake area of the state, and any recommendations for activities while visiting?

Cite?IN A MOTOR VEHICLE ON SUNDAY, FIREARM (OTHER THAN A PISTOL WITH PERMIT) UNLESS CASED OR DISASSEMBLED (MAG REMOVAL DOES NOT COUNT)
In a case is concealed. Just like if i had a glock back pack on with the pistol in it. Shouldn't be any debate.DEBATED –CASED FIREARM IN AN OBVIOUS GUN CASE, ABSENT A PERMIT
