    Re: Question on driving through multiple states

    Day 1: So far so good. Now stopped for the night in Winchester VA. Tomorrow the Ruger gets unloaded and locked in a case in the trunk where it will stay for the remainder of the trip until I'm out of enemy territory. Thanks everyone for the help and advice.

    In MD, ammo in a mag is considered a LOADED weapon. Doesn't matter the mag is not in the gun. Keep it locked in the trunk with a trigger lock in a locked box.

    Rampo we haven't heard from you in two days. Where should we send the bail money.

    In my opinion just before you get to the Maryland border go to a gun store on put it in a safe! New Jersey, New York and Maryland are so bad they regularly do not considering it "transported" unless you are no going to stop in the state. Sightseeing doesn't count. When I would drive from CT to CA I would bypass New Jersey altogether and lock my gun in the trunk and ammo in the glove box in places like Illinois. I had a complete list of reciprocity for each state I was going through. Luckily New York honored Connecticut's license.
    Also check on your disclosure requirements for each state.

    In these states, I would NEVER lock my ammo in the glove box. If they see it incidentally (like when you reach for the registration/insurance card) you could be in big trouble. Store it in separate locked boxes on separate sides of the trunk.

    So, you might ask why would they require this. The rationale goes something like: in order to protect yourself, you purposely go to the trunk, open it, unlock the gun, unlock the ammo, insert the ammo and then shoot, this is now premeditated murder and not self defense because you purposely loaded and discharged your weapon. Welcome to the idiocy of liberals.

    I got signed out of BC over the weekend through nothing I did. I couldn't get back on or get password reset until last night. Could read posts but that's all. Wonder if same happened to him and others. It looks like activity was a little light the last few days.

    Understand. Just checking. Low profile stealth mode is a good idea.

    I forgot to mention, the ammo also must NOT be in the magazine as some interpret that as still being a "loaded" weapon and will get it confiscated and destroyed before you can get a court to return it (which they almost never do...)

    Re: Question on driving through multiple states

    Thanks again to everyone's advice on getting me through multiple states. This morning I went searching for a traveler's guide for the gun owner and came up with the "Traveler's Guide to the Firearms Laws of the Fifty States" by J. Scott Kappas. Has anyone used this guide? The 2017 edition will be available through Amazon next week.

    I just saw this and felt I had to respond. The Federal requirement for travelling with a gun is to separate the ammo and the guns in different compartments. And if you have an SUV or van you have to keep them as far apart as possible. It adds one more step to your "liberal idiocy." Funny thing was that the back seat in my Sonata folded down and I had access to the trunk from inside the car.
