  • Firearm in vehicle.

    What is the general protocal for transporting a rifle or two to a range and back? I ask this because most things I've seen say that a rifle has to be in a case in the trunk of your vehicle and I drive a Subaru Outback which doesn't really have a trunk. Basically I'm asking what do all you LEO's out there prefer. If they ask whats in the back of my vehicle and I explain that it is a rifle locked in a hard case as well as having a cable lock on the actual weapon itself, will I be ok? Thanks

    I, personally wouldn't have a problem with that as long as it was unloaded. Having a station wagon without a seperate locking trunk, you're acting within the "spirit" or "color" of the law having it behind the back seat. You shouldn't have a problem.

      Locked in the case with ammo stored away from weapon possibly in a seprate locked case. Do not leave car unattended while you runerrands and take directly to range and directly home and secure it properly at home.

      Thefts of long guns from car is a problem.

        Depends on what state you are in and the time of year...

          What about driving a truck?

          I know here in Missouri the weapon has to be unloaded with ammunition not readily accessible or the weapon has to be not readily accessible. When I drove a car I always put firearms in the trunk and the ammunition in the passenger compartment, but now that I don't have a car I haven't decided what the best course of action is. Would the gun being in a locked case constitute being not readily accessible?

              Firearm in the rear and ammo in the glovebox.

                You're right, the law says a concealable firearm. I was under the impression that even if you had a rifle covered it was not considered to be a concealable firearm.
