    Alright, so this is a dumb question. Is it alright to have ammo in my shotgun case while I am driving or does it have to be locked up seperatly? What if the shotgun is out in the open? Thanks.

    In Our Fair State of WA, the ammo needs to be in a separate container from the firearm. So the shotgun case would probably not be okay, but loose in the trunk or in a bag alongside would be kosher.

    This is a legal question and probably should be in a different folder that discusses legal issues.

    Not a dumb question, but a very essential one.

    State regulations apply.

    In my state, Colorado, you cannot have rounds in the chamber when driving.

    I suppose that Concealed Carry weapons are different from hunting firearms.

    If you have rounds in a rifle or shotgun, you could leave yourself open to suspicion of road-hunting, or shooting from your vehicle, which is almost universally forbidden I think.

    Depends on where you live. I don't know about Washington, but here you can have them loaded in the magazine and theres no problem.

    Why would you want a loaded shotgun in a vehicle?

    Right forum or not I would like to know the answer for the State of Tennessee. I don't have a loaded shotgun when I go to the trap range, but I do have ammo beside the shotgun in transit. Sorry, but my truck does not have a trunk or back seat. The question has always bugged me even though no one has ever stopped me or suggested it was illegal. I am specifically talking about a shotgun now and not a handgun.

    Didn't say I did, just saying its legal here. Some places like California can call it a loaded firearm if the ammunition is in the same case or near the firearm, there does not have to be any ammo in the gun itself. I have herd that an UN loaded revolver with a loaded speed loader can be charged as a loaded weapon.
