In 1979, I was giving a living history lecture for 8th graders in the local middle school. The secretary at the elementary school across the street saw me entering the building and called the police. Fortunately, the administration office had been informed previously and was able to intercept them before things got out of hand. I also told the local police before doing a demonstration once. Although I was demonstrating in a legal manner, the police appreciated that I'd contacted them first because they did get calls from citizens. Would it be better or worse to bring a musket "broken down" in a case, rather than slung over your shoulder? (Providing of course that the carrying of said musket is in fact legal and already permitted)?
