    denner, that was actually a really good article.

    let me once re-iterate i was mainly asking for the laws of carrying a hand gun in the trunk of my car. can i have a loaded magazine inside the trunk? or does it have to be un-loaded? if loaded can it be together in the same case, but not inside the gun.

    believe me guys, i will use extreme caution when handling this man cannon!

    You are in Komifornia,and in the worst spot for this topic,I would look into moving north or better a different state that is free.NY,DC,Chicago are suppressed just like you.

    Unless you are versed in legalese (sp?),read as much as you can and when you don't understand it ask a lawyer that is versed in the law,it's the ONLY way to CYA.DON"T ask a cop,they don't know and I suspect most in your area are completely clueless and biased.

    Here's an example here in FL.Cops would tell you there's a 3 step rule for carrying in your car.The law reads it can not be readily accessible and securely encased,period.Snap it in a holster and throw it in the glove box,the center console,under the seat,under the center console,100% in compliance of the law but it has nothing to do with 3 moves.

    Brandishing was another.In the early days of CC if you reached up on a shelf and your weapon or holster peeked out and the cops were called there was a brandishing or improper exehibition charge,neither law existed and by the law there had to be a wanton and malicious act to fall under a charge,as in openly carrying where you couldn't or pulling it out and waving it around like a whackaloon.

    Trust nobody's opinion besides a lawyer's that is versed in firearm law.It may cost a few bucks for a consultation,but that's a hell of a lot cheaper than getting 3 hots and a cot and losing everything you have.

    Thats because they answer the questions................they don't just guess.

    The real answer for a price is way better then someone who thinks they are right cause... one time in Iowa a guy they Know asked a guy who sells pistols who's dad was a cop well not a real cop but a mall security guy , but he knew the law!

    Bad advice will eventually cost you way more then the real honest answer.

    I don't plan on using my gun other than firing range guys, I'm just asking your guys knowledge, pretty simple. For some reason I'm getting the feeling that you guys think I'm some trigger happy fool, and I'm quite the opposite!

    Then on your way to the range and then on your way back home, keep your gun in the case and your mags stored seperate. Do not have any bullets in your mags or your guns. Store said bullets in a seperate locked box away from your weapons. Then even if its over kill you are good. It doesn't take long to load your mags at the range. A little over caution is never a bad thing. No one thinks you are trigger happy fool!

    No offense to anyone here, but the internet is hardly the place to obtain information that well may effect the rest of your life. I know, I know, if it's on the internet it must be true, but-----

    It's so much easier where I live. Wallet in back pocket, keys, change, gun in holster on strong side (loaded), and off to the range. When I finish up and leave, gun is in holster on strong side fully loaded. Any extra handguns are in the range bag. Pretty simple.

    Yep. And a host of other places. This week included grocery shopping, several trips to Lowe's, Home Depot, Walmart, Kohl's, Barnes and Noble, Taco Bell, McDonald's, Target, Goodyear Tire and Auto, Costco, and BJ's and those are the ones that come to mind right away. Tomorrow my bank and perhaps a little more shopping.

    My carry rig looks professional, non-descript, and is pretty simple and unobtrusive. Certainly not threatening. It really is a no-brainer here and just doesn't create the kind of stuff so many people on these forums claim will happen. People scared and running from you, calls of MWAG (Man With A Gun), parents pulling their children close and exiting stores, hard stares, nasty comments, police harassment.... don't see any of this.

    Sometimes I take living in Vermont too much for granted.

    Yeah, no permits required there for either mode of carry. But what about the general attitude of people going armed? Is it considered acceptable and pretty much normal or the opposite? I've never visited Vermont so I am clueless of how the people there view the carrying of firearms in public.

    Asking when or when you can't use a firearm in self-defense, is like asking how do you fly a plane.

    You will be best served by researching this on your own and in your own area of residence.
