I was reading a topic on transporting your long gun and had a question for you guys i have a double barrel shotgun that I keep under the seat of my truck (unloaded)and it is accesable to me. I also keep a box of shells in the glove box and in my "how to own a gun and stay out of jail" book it says longguns don't fall under the concealed gun law so you can keep them concealed as long as they are unloaded so is what I am doing legal?

Where do you live??...which state??

In many states you still have to have the long guns unloaded and locked, or at least inaccessible.  As hanko asks, what state?

If you happen to be in Texas then it is completely legal. There are no restrictions on the carry of longuns/shotguns either loaded or unloaded or concealed/unconcealed either on your person in your vehicle or whatever. Conceivably I could walk into WalMart with a loaded AR15 and a slung shotgun across my back and break no firearms laws. I could see a disturbing the peace or inciting public unrest though
