Firearm Transport Rules?

I'm going out of state for the holidays, and I'm planning on taking a few weapons with me for some target practice.

1. Casing requirement?
2. Do the cases have to "locked", or can I have a ziptie to prevent ready access?
3. Ammo separate from the firearms?

Firearms: Ruger .270, M1 Garand, 9mm, and 45ACP
States: Wisconsin, Illinois, Tennessee, and Arkansas

Thanks

I'd think you'd be fine if ts in the case and didn't have loaded magazine in the gun. I've been around two of those states wo issue with my own

Rule #1... don't get stopped and you can keep it wherever you want

Has to be unloaded in a sealed container. Magazine can be loaded and in the same compartment but 100% unloaded. Case does not have to be locked or ziptied, just zipped up/latched. I've put my PLR22 carrying case over my shoulder, clearly visible (case not gun) and rode to the range on my motorcycle. Had my Glock under the bitch seat too.

I may or may not keep a little something something off the cuff when I know I have to go to a jobsite in the ghetto. Illegal but my life's more important.

Take it to the STREETS!

Best to err on the side of caution - case & lock 'em up.

I keep an up to date copy of the IL law in my car just in case. Some officers might not even know the law to the "t" so it's best to have it so you could say "hey now officer, before you arrest me on some serious charges, let's make sure we all have an accurate asessment of the cituation." But seriously tho, couldn't hurt to have, just in case.

Take it to the STREETS!

when I was talking to the guy at Rinks about this. He said something to the effect that the gun has to be in a "gun" case so the origional box or a case of some sort basically. and the magazine out of the gun. he also went on to say an extreme example how you can have a loaded magazine on your lap and the gun in a case right next to you and it is totally legal in illinois.

only part i dont remember is if the magazine can be load and in the same case as the gun....so just keep the magazine out of the gun unloaded in a case and amo seperate and you should be more than fine.

Yes, the magazine can be loaded in the same compartment as the gun it, but once that magazine is in the gun it's a felony.

you should probably have it strapped as a side arm, concealed and loaded. that way when the cop asks if you have any firearms or contraband, you can easily show him...and make sure you make quick, nervous motions...these cops now a days dont have to much patience.

what if you don't have a vehicle? can you carry in a firearm specific case? with loaded magazines (mags not in the firearm)? Say I walk to work and want to bring my pistol with me, but want to transport legally in IL.

it's not concealed or open carry...

Three statutory codes regulate the possession, transfer, and transportation of firearms- the Criminal Code, the Wildlife Code, and the Firearm Owner’s Identification Act. Under Unlawful Use of Weapons (UUW) in the Criminal Code, persons who have been issued a valid FOID card may transport a firearm anywhere in their vehicle or on their person as long as the firearm is unloaded and enclosed in a case, firearm carrying box, shipping box, or other container. Firearms that are not immediately accessible or are broken down in a non-functioning state may also be carried or transported under the Criminal Code. The Wildlife Code, however, is more restrictive. It requires that all firearms transported in or on any vehicle be unloaded and in a case. Because of this, it is recommended that, in order to be in compliance with all statutes, all firearms be transported:
1. Unloaded and,
2. Enclosed in a case, and
3. By persons who have a valid FOID card.

None taken. I read everything. I also read this on the current ISP site @ http://www.isp.state.il.us/foid/firearmsfaq.cfm

There is more than one way to legally transport a firearm. However, in order to be in compliance with all statutes, it is recommended all firearms be transported:
Unloaded,
Enclosed in a case and,
By persons who have a valid FOID card.

What constitutes a legal "case" for transporting a firearm?
The Criminal Code refers to "a case, firearm carrying box, shipping box, or other container." However, the Wildlife Code is more specific, defining case as "a container specifically designed for the purpose of housing a gun or bow and arrow device which completely encloses such gun or bow and arrow device by being zipped, snapped, buckled, tied, or otherwise fastened with no portion of the gun or bow and arrow device exposed."

Is it legal to have ammunition in the case with the firearm?
Yes, so long as the firearm is unloaded and properly enclosed in a case.
Seems pretty clear cut to me. As long as there are no local ordinances against it, it seems ok to carry in a case.

I made it there and back just fine. I just kept all of the ammo, clips, and magazines in a separate travel bag, and all of the weapons in cases.

I finally got a chance to fire the M1 and the .270.

The M1 has a nice feel to it, but the open sights beyond 50 yds took some getting used to. The recoil wasn't too bad. Fairly decent groups for the first time firing the M1. I sucked at standing shots due to the weight of the weapon, but could get better with some practice. It's definitely not an M16.

The .270? SWEEET!!! Has a nice light trigger, and being able to fire 5 rounds and have 2-3 of those holes overlapping was nice. Even for a bolt action, the recoil was light. Having the Leupold scope made a world of difference.

I think I need to find a longer distance range to really get these sighted in. Can't wait for Spring.
