Concealed carry

Okay, this may have been answered before on the forum but I need to ask.

While taking my NRA certification for a pistol permit, concealed carry in the Adirondack park was brought to attention: Is it okay to carry while hiking in the Adirondack Park?

a quick call to the state police should answer your question... they are very good at clarifying gun laws in n.y.

Concealed Carry You may carry concealed anywhere except court rooms schools federal buildings airports and New York city and there might be a few more exceptions but yes you can carry inside the park.

An individual is permitted to carry a loaded handgun in a vehicle with the proper license. However, it is illegal to carry a loaded shotgun or rifle in a vehicle. It is also against the law to carry, transport, or possess a handgun in or through the state of New York without a valid New York license.

It is prohibited to carry a concealed weapon in New York in the following locations:

Courthouses under the rule of the NYS Office of Court Administration.
Government buildings – in certain cities and counties.
A building or grounds used for educational purposes, except forestry lands owned and maintained by the State University of New York College of environmental science and forestry.

New York continues to operate as a Castle Doctrine state, although it does not have a stand-your-ground law. The self-defense law in New York is based on the Castle Doctrine, though it is a weaker law than those found in many other states.

New York requires a duty to retreat in any location outside of an individual’s personal property. In the home, the Castle Doctrine law will authorize the use of deadly force, as long as the resident of the home does not initiate the attack. Outside of the home, an individual must do everything in their power to retreat from an attacker safely before using deadly force.

In the state of New York, Open Carry of a weapon is prohibited in all public places.

Concealed carry

You can carry concealed if you have an unrestricted pistol permit.

Since "concealed carry" has absolutely nothing to do with hunting, might I suggest that the moderators move this thread to "Gear" section. Just my opinion..

I guess no need to move it, question has been answered. Wasn't sure the Adirondacks being a state park. In your backpack is considered concealed I hope?

Concealed carry

If no one else can see it, then it is concealed. Park is fine, but no schools, courthouses, etc.

Actually Chairrock , I believe it does come into play with hunting . Some counties issue unrestricted permits ( ccw) others will restrict them to , Resident ( home / businesses only ) target shooting ( only at home or at the range ) , and sportsman ( hiking hunting and such. ) .
I believe any of these restrictions require the locked box in the trunk and ammo separate for transport . Resident or target does not allow for any shirttails or coat to " conceal" the handgun. A minimum ( max you are likely to get in my county ) is the sportsman , that will cover you in the woods , just remember the transport rules to and from.

Only reason I think it better not to move the topic is this section gets a little more latitude than the others

I am in Herkimer county and I can tell you you will be quite lucky indeed to get an unrestricted permit in this county without serious weapon training (more than the NRA classes give you). That being said it is unnecessary to conceal in the woods or fields of the adirondacks when recreating there.

From what I can see, it depends upon your residency. I am from Michigan and NY state does not reciprocate my CPL. If you are NY resident, things may be different.
