Fire Ems pretty welll summed it up......
Just got back from a weekend adventure up there camped out in the state park, no search's of the vehicles , they were way to busy, and yes the whole island seems to be one big DRINKING Zone...lol You can pour your favorite adult beverage into a plastic cup and walk about, long as it's not in a original labeled container they seem to just let you be. Sat night the main drag was packed with golf carts, and people and 18 Police Officers for the one sq mile area. Here is a thing to ponder the golf carts are all Liscened Plated registered vehicles, I could just imagine a DUI OVI Checkpoint, ROFLOL. Other thing I didn't see was the GB signs. On the Perry Monument Visitors center they did have a sign about the new law that goes into effect regarding carry in parks, going into effect in 2010, should have taken a phone cam picture.
We Went to Kelly's Island Sunday for a lap. Didn't take it with but could have carried CONCEALED with out notice all the time, but since we were there to party it got unloaded and loacked into it's container, but also was hot as heck too, would have made it a little challenge but, still think no one would have noticed. For the Trip home I opened carry, but discreetly used a UC Jersey to somewhat cover, on the boat back, struck up a conversation with a armed courier, he open carries his "work" gun all the time, discreet golf shirt and kahki's makes him not look like a armed courier probably a smart bussiness decision, said no one ever thinks twice but he does the trips daily so a regular. Being this is a PARTY PLACE, I Had a good time and felt safe, People just wanna have fun and relax, low crime risk.
The biggest threat up there was the spiders, mosquito's and racoon's. LOL
