If I am involved in a accident, and transported by EMS, what happens to my firearm?

If the police are called I'm pretty sure they will take custody of your weapon.  No way they would let you go to the hospital with it.  I worry about this very thing.  When you get out of the hospital you will have to go through the red tape of getting your weapon back.  This is one of the reasons I carry a gun that is within my budget to replace if necessary.

spanman,

Go ahead and alert EMS that there is a firearm in the vehicle. Either the authorities will include it on the inventory of what’s in the vehicle when it is towed, or they will take possession of it until you get out of the hospital. So long as you can legally possess a firearm, we’ve never seen anyone have difficulty getting it back in this scenario.
