Seems like a plan to me . People and especially youngsters can be a real pest . That is one reason I do not go out doing my landscape painting or Boat fishing . In both cases , I tend to get disturbed by either constant questions or adults that for no reason at all , take exceptions and start arguments ! No peace .
To stop people asking questions , while you travel , then you could put your Guns in a back pack , together with the Barrels . This way you are not technically concealing a weapon . But back pack has to be tall and cumbersome . A folding stock allows use of much smaller back pack or shoulder bag . I agree a hollow walking stick may be considered as conceal , but you could instead just use a widely available cardboard tube to carry the barrel . This should stop inquisitive youngsters pestering you . And is not technically concealing . Since the police can see it and ask to inspect it .
