    well i am not really comfortable with the idea of having my 1911 in my backpack (on a Sportster) on the way to a friends house and passing through a road check or something on the way, would having the barrel, slide and frame apart from each other, along with the empty mags in my pistol case reduce my chance of an officer giving my a problem?:confused:

    One suggestion, lock it in a secure case (backpack, case?)- I had a screener at the airport ask me to show her my 12 ga OU which was disassembeled! was unloaded :cuss:, Lock any ammo in a separate case, and you should be good.

    well i only ride my 1982 ironhead (an old sportster) and rarely get to borrow dads truck so that is why i carry it in a backpack, i have it locked inside the pistol case it came from the dealer in while im riding, but just disassembling as further precaution

    Get a carry permit and you won't have to fool with this nonsense.

    I can only suggest you learn and comply with your state and local laws. The problem is that few laws concerning the carrying of guns address whether the gun is operable or not, or even issues such as age, firing system, etc. For example, in many states, a percussion revolver is not a firearm in the purchase law and requires no permit or police check to buy, but is still a weapon and illegal to carry concealed "on or about the person", even if not loaded.

    i don't believe it would be wise to ride with it in my holster in plain view either (even if its unloaded), and may actually get more attention then i like when out riding...... mostly mountain roads but often a small town somewhere along the line heading to at least three of my friends houses
