i understood that no lock is necessary, in the home, while travelling, ever. long guns must be kept unloaded in a "case" (that definition varies) with ammo in a seperate place while travelling.

When I transport my long arms to the rang I place them in the back of the mini van on a blanket. Action open. The ammo in ammo cans in the middle of the van. I then cover the weapons with another blanket. I also cover the ammo cans with a blanket. When I get to the range I use the blanket to cover the benches so the weapson dont get scratched. I have been doing it this way for years on end. I don't use a case. Does some one know of the law for transportation. I was told transportation of firearms was in the conservation laws and not the penal code.

When transporting ANY long arm the rifle/shotgun must be seperated from the ammo.If in a car you can have the rifle in the trunk and the ammo in the passanger compartment or visa/versa.In the case of a handgun,if you have any type of carry permit(Target,business,full) you may have the gun loaded,cocked and locked.

Unless carried on your person all firearms should be secured in a lockable case separate from the ammo in the trunk of the vehicle. In the case of a minivan or truck the ammo and firearms should be in separate lockable containers and secured in the vehicle. If you are involved in an accident you don't want your firearms and ammo to be ejected or be flying around the passenger compartment. You also have to be careful in NY because some jurisdictions have enacted their own laws. NY sucks. Imagine if every jurisdiction had their own vehicle equipment regulations.
