I'm taking a personal vaction to Iowa and I'll be driving through Missouri. I know I'm covered by national carry for my handgun, but am I OK if to carry a rifle (AR or SKS) in the trunk? I know don't ask don't tell will come into effect if I get stopped, but I want to be legal.
Thanks!!

Unloaded, encased, and in your trunk. Federal law covers you there.

Yep. MO LEO here and you are good to go. You can also carry a pistol in your vehicle since you meet the definition of a traveler.
Sounds like you are an LEO yourself. In that case, don't worry about it!!


The big question is: Why do you want to vacation in Iowa??

I'm in IA, LEO for 24 years, firearms instructor.

For the rifle, you're okay as long as it's unloaded, cased, and in the trunk. Should be fine.

Don't worry about it. I'd just make sure it's out of sight but don't worry about it in MO!!!!

Thanks everybody!! I think it's funny how (generally speaking) gun laws become more restrictive the farther north you travel.
I'm not lookiing forward to nine hours in the car just me and the boy, it will be an experince.
Thanks again for the help!!
