Airport question

Recommended Posts

I have to pick someone up at the airport this week and would like to have my gun for the trip. I will be picking the passenger up curbside. I will not go into the airport. I see airports are prohibited carry locations. Does this include the parking lots too? Thanks

Airports are only carry prohibited beyond the scanners, but that doesn't mean they can't post the rest of the airport as a no-carry zone. Either way, the parking lots are fine.

As others said, you are fine as long as you don't go into the building. Curbsides and parking lots are just fine though.

I was carrying while picking up a car at Knoxville Airport last week. Never went into the airport just parking garage. I don't open carry so not carrying never entered my mind.

I know the Dept of Safety page says Airports are off-limits, but as stated above that is only the "secure area". The airport in Nashville however is posted, but it is only the terminal.

On another forum I am in a running discussion with a Nashville Airport LEO on a subject....and he just posted in that thread that the parking lot, drop off/pickup area is not posted and other than checking your permit there shouldn't be any problem.
