I did a search but could not find an answer to my question. I almost hate to ask due to all the emotional attachment to this issue, but IF I were to carry a firearm and IF I wanted to leave it in Arizona before crossing into Mexico, where would be a good place to 'check' then, it, IF?

I've heard that local gunsmiths might store a weapon. For a price, of course.

Or maybe you could leave it at some shop for some repair or upgrade and get "free" storage that way. At least you would have something for your money that way.

Check with your Mexican Insurance agent in US.
That is who is storing our firearms.

At least the problem of carrying weapons within a US National Park is over. We travel through Zion Ntl. Park once a week, and had actually been instructed by Park law enforcement to leave our gun in the bushes at the Park entrance and pick it up on our way back through. Can you believe that? That was while being issued a warning citation for having one in the first place before the new rulings.

We grew up in Arizona and have always carried a weapon with us when tarveling. My wife and I are both legally licensed to carry a concealed firearm. As such, we have a gun with us most of the time. For us, traveling through Zion Ntl. Park is just a pass through on a state highway to get to Springville, Ut. In fact, the Park issues us a 'pass through' windsheild sticker for that purpose. So if you have a firearm with you and are just driving through the park, what are you supposed to do? The Parks answer of "leave it in the bushes" is ridiculous. The new law allowing them solves the problem and should have been enacted long go.

Where can I see this change in the law? This is the first time that I've heard of this.

If you have to ask leave it at home, chances are you will never use it.

Never tried it but an idea. Rent a safety deposit box at a bank big enough for the weapon. Would be cheap an could be very safe. I would tell the bank that you are putting a family air loom in before I entered the bank with the weapon. Of course if your talking long guns that is another problem.

What you can do is Pawn the weapon. Pawn shops will give you cash and then you have so many days to redeem the item. Of course when you redeem it you will have to pay a fee.
