A friend of mine recently bought a single shot shotgun to keep in his vehicle. He has mentioned keeping it in the back of his car (a hatchback) with the locking cable through the barrel with a loaded shell sleeve on the stock. However, (and this is where my concern for legality comes in) in order to prevent it getting stolen from his vehicle due to having to keep it unconcealed, he mentioned looping the locking cable through these loops on the back of the seat. The loops are made onto the seat and appear to be for strapping something in for hauling, canopy ties, etc. Now, I'm not asking for legal advice, just looking for some other opinions. To me, it doesn't look like a good idea and like it could lead to some trouble if encountered by law enforcement. We live in Kentucky if that helps any. Thanks in advance.
