Self-Defense for Travelers--Advice Wanted
In a few months time I will be starting a new consulting position that will require me to travel (by air) frequently. I currently have a FL CCW which works for me almost everywhere with the exception of the Northeast.
However, being that I'll be flying week in and week out, traveling with a firearm (assuming the destination recognizes the FL CCW) will be a hassle. Carrying knives will also require me to check-in; something I'd prefer to avoid. Post 9/11 I much rather print my boarding pass from home and go directly to the gate.
For those of you who have been in this situation before, what did you do? Can anyone else give me some good pointers? If you're staying at the same hotel week after week is it okay to ask them to "hold" things for you? Anything would be helpful.
