    Carrying at Lucas Oil Stadium (For LEO)

    Interesting information I found out today...

    On Thursday I plan on going to Lucas Oil Stadium to watch the Colts woop some ***. My concern was not really my safety inside the stadium but rather my walk from the stadium back to my vehicle at 11PM. I planned on CC'ing my Glock 23 but then read numerous blogs/websites saying off duty LEOs can / cannot carry inside Lucas Oil. Since Lucas Oil is considered private property per LEOSA they have the final say (in theroy) whether or not you can or cannot carry.

    Well a guy I work with just happens to know the man in charge of Security at Lucas Oil and gave him a rang. He stated the following for any of those interested in knowing this tid bit of information:

    (1) An off-duty LEO can carry inside Lucas Oil Stadium but must:
    (a) Immediately identify themself as an off-duty LEO to a uniformed officer standing at the gate (not the yellow shirt security guards).
    (b) Present your police issued ID / Badge.
    (c) Sign a form indicating where you will be seated during the game.

    I understand this sucks if you are not a LEO as I believe it should be your right to protect yourself but agree if you were allowed to carry you should be held to a higher standard then drunk joe-blow on the 50 yard line.

    I would like to know why they are interested to know where LEOs are sitting other then just for reference...

    Hope this helps anyone else looking for this same information

    Would it be the same thing if you show a valid LTCH at the gate?

    If they dont allow people with a LTCH to carry inside the stadium I would like to know what's their thought behind the idea of letting OFF-duty LEOs carry in the stadium.
    In one hand someone legally carrying a gun is not allowed to carry, in the other someone legally carrying a gun and not on duty is allowed.

    No, If you show your LTCH you will get denied entry. But then you can look at it as a LEO is always on-duty, even if he/she is off-duty....

    Just like a off-duty plumber with a LTCH is always on-duty right?

    They could refuse off-duty LEOs to carry there if they wanted.So it's not like they are against guns, they are just against guns in the hands of non-LEOs.

    Im glad LEOs can carry there, I just wished other people could.
    Im sure many people dont go there because they are not allowed to defend themselves.

    You can always try small of back carry. When I went to the game, all 8 of us in 4 different lines were wanded. They start at your feet on the side and go up, arms spread over the top of the head and back down the side, then in between the legs. I could have easily carried either appendix or SOB and gotten by. Just my observation from the one game I attended.

    I stopped going to US Nationals because they wouldn't allow me to take my pistol in, looks like the Colts wont see any of my money either.

    If I ever go there, I will be carrying.
