Had to rent a loaner at the Dealer today for service. Can I legally
CCW in their vehicle? My guess is no.

If you can CCW legally in your vehicle, I don't see a problem. I don't think the law makes a distinction for vehicles you don't own. I ain't a lawyer, though. Your state laws may vary, but I've never heard of that one.

Sign the rental agreement. Get in the car. Drive away.

I rent a car a few times a year and I've NEVER seen anything in the rental contract prohibiting firearms.

Last weekend I used a rental car to drive cross-state to take a handgun class. Two handguns (1 ccw the other in a case), an AR, and aprox 1500 rounds of ammo. Nothing in the rental contract, no signage posted in the office.

Rental cars AFAIK are considered just as hotels are, the same as your home or car, when considering firearms. If you are legal to carry in your home or car, you are legal to carry in your hotel room/rental car in the jurisdiction you are in.

Better to be judged by 12, than carried by 6.

A few years ago, Shawn from Cav Arms rented an RV from a well known company to attend a machinegun shoot, maybe Knob Creek - can't remember. The RV broke down on the highway and they contacted said company. Company told them to abandon RV, head into town and they'd get another RV. Shawn informed company that they couldn't leave RV as they had restricted class 3 firearms with them. They were instructed to wait.

Cops show up code 3, hold everyone at gunpoint because "weapons were involved" including a young child. It all got sorted out, nothing illegal at all. Employee went off the deep end and called cops because guns were mentioned.

Cav Arms rented the RV in AZ wearing Cav Arms shirts, openly packing sidearms and even told the staff what they were planning.

I don't remember the outcome, but I think the RV company got sued and settled.

I have rented cars and trucks and crossed the country many times with firearms in the last 20 years without a problem. It is not illegal unless it is stated in your contract. Don't be so quick to give up rights and quit.

You know what the difference is between a 4 wheel drive and a rental car

A 4 wheel goes off road

A rental car goes ANYWHERE

In your car, no! In a hotel room, notwithstanding local regulations to the contrary, yes! Hotel room is considered your home during your rental period, offering much the same protections as your house. If you are in Cook County, or anywhere with a handgun ban, handguns are not legal in your home, therefore, not legal in hotel rooms either. As far as cars in IL, you cannot carry in your car, so you cannot carry in a rental.

I recommend carrying at least one piece anytime you are in a rental car and can legally do so. Rental cars were/are easy to spot by goblins for a robbery (a la Florida back in the day), thus a little extra security may come in handy.

Even then it would not be illegal, just a violation of the contract. All they can do is refuse to rent to you.

Hyundai Elantra And before anyone raises the BS flag this was a European version and not the speed restricted American version.
