When transporting firearms, both legal and safe practices must be followed. In addition to federal laws, there are regulations that vary by state.
- Always unload firearms and transport them in a case. In many states, this may be the law. The action should be open or the gun broken down, whichever makes the firearm safest.
- Transporting firearms in window gun racks is not safe. It is also an invitation to thieves.
- A vehicle does not provide a secure resting place for firearms. A firearm that falls over might accidentally discharge or be damaged.
