    Can anyone clarify the legality on OCing in National Parks? Is it legal? My family and my brothers family are planning a vacation to Montana's Glacier Park here in a couple of weeks and we both need to know the law. Any help/thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    National Parks forbid dogs, guns, and geocaches.

    There are proposed rule changes that will have the National Parks mirroring state law when it comes to firearms. However thenew ruleshaven't been put into effect yet. So no guns.

    As an NRA member, I get emails of new "news" and I think I remember seeing something about that. But again, just wanted to clarify that. Hopefully this "dumbass" law will change soon!

    I used to live right at the edge of GNP. The official policy is no guns. They have to be unloaded and stored when driving through. As it is in all National Parks.

    Mypolicy was a little different. It was concealed means concealed. And that usually meant a stoutly loaded S&W 25-5 in 45 Colt.

    Four legged people eaters aren't the only dangers in a place like that. I always figured I would much rather pay the price for shooting a bear than getting partially eaten by a bear. It was a risk I was willing to take. YMMV
