They call it concealed for a reason.  If there are not metal detectors or body search, who will know...  And you may need that for the "animals" outside the gates.

Just an update as of early fall 2020 - still no metal detectors...but they search bags.  How brilliant!  I guess a false feeling of security makes them feel better as they searched through my wife’s purse at length and I smiled and waved while walking in with a gun.

I guess it just reinforces the need to be armed - their ‘security checkpoint’ clearly provides no increase in security at all - I guess they are just really making sure you aren’t bringing in food or drinks so they can rape you with their concession prices!

Stay safe!
