Yeah, the law sucks, especially since forgetting to click a padlock can mean a F E L O N Y, when it's really a very minor "crime", hardly befitting the word.

In FL, from what I understand, it has to be locked up out of reach.
What if it's in the plastic case and visible?? The gun has to be out and visible? Asking so i can clarify for a friend w/ a Glock.

No, not if you have ammo in there as well.

Hey, how long for the edges on the 92FS to get worn enough not to tear up my hands when operating the slide?
Never...or break out a file Seriously, check out my 92G next time, its an ex PD gun and has had the piss beat out of it...and its still sharp.

It's the same here. Even though they're both in a backpack, because the gun is in it's own locked container, they're considered separate.

I suppose if you are carrying a weapon loaded in the car, you are expecting to get carjacked or something?? I can see unlocking and then loading your weapon if you break down somewhere... but all the time?

Or a zippered gun rug, they usualy have a ring at the end you can snap a padlock through with the zipper end. Same rules for redgistered assult weapons. Long guns only need to be unloaded.

Re: Interesting Question, transporting a firearm on your bike.

Here in AZ, you can have it loaded with one in the hole on your hip and like 1/4 inch or a 1/2 inch of the gun in plain sight WITHOUT a CCW

With a CCW you can do whatever the **** you want!

Ask Reaper too he should know the laws by heart and that Bastid has a CCW

That's how it is in OH as well. Unless you have CCW, and then it still has to be (as in Conq's post) openly visible while on the bike b/c it is considered in a vehicle. The CCW laws here suck, IMO.
