I think we are done. The OP's question was about storing a weapon, prior to crossing into Canada, and that question has been addressed.
If the thread were closed, it would remain available to read, but not to comment. If it is not closed and nobody comments, it's just dormant, and I'm fine with that.

Obviously a touchy subject. Does anyone know if there is a service similar to Bromley's IGA near the crossing to Osoyoos?

The nearest town to the border is Oroville, and it's really small. I've been there a few times, although several years ago, and the Prince's Center (1000 23rd Ave) seemed to be the place with everything - it was a grocery store and department store... and back then it was the preferred video rental location for Osoyoos (the Osoyoos Home Hardware doesn't quite have everything ). The grocery side is apparently currently an Akins Foods.

The hardware and department side was an Ace Hardware, and my guess is that it would be the possible source of a storage service... but unfortunately as I just learned it apparently became Hughes Department Store and recently went under, although the store's web site is still running. The article says
Quote:
The store was hurt when the exchange rate on the dollar reduced the number of Canadians crossing to Oroville to shop.
... so if people from Osoyoos were the ones supporting the business, it probably wasn't serving a lot of northbound tourists anyway.

The next larger town down the highway is Omak, and it's still small. It didn't seem like a border community to me; I don't know if there would be any services related to cross-border tourism. At least it does appear to have a sporting goods store with firearms sales (Big 5) but I have no idea if they would offer the desired service - I've been to Omak, but not into that store.

While I do not have a permit, I do dabble in good hardware. You might punch up ffl license Omak Washington and get a lead or two on a place that would store one for you. There are several shops of that ilk in Omak

I have a carry permit. That being said, I have never taken a firearm of any sort on an RV/camping trip, regardless if where I am going. And I have been doing this for more years than I want to admit. For that matter, I have never carried it on my person unless I was going for a walk in the woods where I might encounter a venemous snake or other dangerous wildlife. Like Alf said, most places in the US are safe as are most places in Canada (they do have shootings there occasionally). Just avoid unsafe places. Most of us do not want to camp in downtown Detroit or Chicago anyway. Leave the firearm at home, trust your instincts, and you won't have to store it to cross the border.
