    What part of Canada are you going to?

    Sounds like a fun trip. I'm sure you said this, but when are you planning on heading through the area??

    We are headed that way in Aug 09

    I was told that some duty free shops have lockers. I find it hard to belive that with Canada's handgun laws that some one does not provide this type of service.

    They used to have lockers, my wife stored her 357 all the time. But since 9-11
    I would be shocked if they still have them. You could plant a turbin in one then
    bamm, we have another man made incident needing action by our foriegn civil
    missunderstanding responders.

    Worst case get a storage shed for a month, and put the lockbox in it.
    Overkill, but 1 month isn't bad. Climate control prefered.
    Lock in trunk, park car and use rental car for the week in canada.
    Get a canada approved gun.....
    We all know you are just trying to get more grenades to those sweet soutern border
    friends. Geraldo says it is the canada border that is the problem after all.

    Texas Grey Ghost,

    What I've done before while traveling to Canaduh was to simply drive down a remote forest service road somewhere miles before reaching the border, hike a few hundred feet off into the woods, and lock my guns to a tree in a Pelican case with a cable bike lock and padlock. I'd then cover it with a camo leaf net tarp and some real pine bows and leaves. I felt very safe doing this as the chances of discovery were extremely remote, IMO.

    Or you could just be irresponsible and leave your gun lying around in the woods when you're not around...
    I'd rather leave it at home and travel unarmed the whole time, instead of chaining it to a tree.

    I don’t see what I suggested as being at all “irresponsible” if done properly, meaning the cache is well hidden and was placed without being observed.

    Caching firearms is a widely accepted survival and warfare technique that has been used by people worldwide since the French Resistance in WWII. While most caches are placed for long-term storage to prevent confiscation and protect against the elements, some are done for a temporary placement.

    A long term cache is intended to lay undetected for years if need be. A fighting cache or ready cache is one where a firearm is kept, sighted in and with the correct ammunition, cleaning gear, and other combat accessories available on short notice. An escape and evasion cache will contain a complete getaway kit (food, clothing, camping equipment, etc.) in addition to a firearm, against the day that the owner finds himself pursued by enemies.

    As far as I know, caching weapons is not illegal, yet. Some states have laws that make it illegal to make a firearm accessible to a minor. However, as long as there is one strong lock between the gun and the outside world (such as in a locked vehicle) no crime is committed.

    I don't start fights, regardless of what others say about me.
