Got my permit renewed today. It had been several years since it was current. I am leaving for Arkansas in a few days and have some questions I need answering. Any help would be appreciated. Be patient with me.... I'm new. 1. How do you carry your gun, loaded or unloaded? 2. Where do you carry it, concealed or in the open? 3. Does Al, Miss, and Ar honor this permit in their state? 4. I will be carrying long guns for duck hunting. Is it legal to carry these through the lobby of a hotel? Do you need to notify the hotel? 5. Is it legal to carry the pistol into my hotel room? 6. ?????? Any advise is welcome. I'm sure I will have more questions as I think about it.
