Interesting Question, transporting a firearm on your bike.

OK, so this is an interesting question. It is probably CA specific, but if it's legal here, it's probably legal in the un-occupied territories too.

I'm planning to go do a bit of shooting this morning. I'd like to ride the MV, but don't have a CWP.

So, how do I legally transport the firearm? Locked in a backpack?

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

Depends on the laws... It varies... Here in NC, it has to be clearly visible. So technically I can ride with it in a holster on my hip. As far as I know, here, if it's hidden (even locked), it's considered concealed.

In FL, from what I understand, it has to be locked up out of reach.

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

Isn't the requirement to have the firearm in a locked location, seperate from the ammunition, in a place where the driver cannot easily combine the two?

Sounds like a backpack with a locked (with key) gun case inside would meet that criteria.

Yep.

Just got off the phone with Corona PD (since this ****-hole no longer has a PD).

The firearm must be in a locked container separate from the ammo. So, if I have the pistol in a locked box (like the plastic one it came in) inside a backpack, the ammo can be in the pack as long as it's not in the locked case with the pistol.

Ask Niner about transporting guns on a bike...

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.

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

Yup that sounds about right. Silly CA laws.

Thats it, locked container, ammo outside it. Alot of the the time, the plastic one that comes with the gun works fine with one of those small padlocks. 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.

I don't think that's unreasonable... it's so the cop has the chance to shoot you first before you shoot him.

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?

Yeah, that's what I use. Only I use my Springfield box as the Beretta one doesn't have an easy spot for a lock.

Hey, how long for the edges on the 92FS to get worn enough not to tear up my hands when operating the slide?

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

They would have to be seperated here if you don't have a Carry Permit... Since I do have one I carry as normal when riding around town but in leathers it's kinda hard....

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.
