You can keep the gun unloaded with the ammo in the same case as the gun. It can be in a regular zip case or any container that will zip, snap etc.. Mags can be loaded but not in the gun. I unfortunately travel to Illinois a lot, I'm leaving to go in 2 hours. I unload my gun as I'm crossing the river. I take a revolver when going because its easier to unload and load back up as I'm crossing back into Ky. I just put the ammo and gun in the same case. It does not have to be locked. Its legal.

IL is a very sad place to travel (for gunnies). I simply stopped going thru IL for any reason. Fortunately I don't have family or close friends who live there.

I've spent extra gas money to do exactly that...it's a matter of principle to me. Anti-gun = no $$$

When I travelled cross-country, the only no-carry state for me was IL. I stopped in IN, unloaded my J-frame, put the J-frame in a lockbox, put the lockbox in a locking drawer under the passenger front seat, and stowed the keys for the lockbox and the speedloader of ammo in my duffle bag, which was at the back of the van (the locking drawer requires the ignition key to unlock). I figured that qualified as "inaccessible".
Luckily, it wasn't an issue - we didn't even stop for gas.

this is fine if you are talking transit. But he did say he is making one stop in Belleville IL. Therefore he is no longer in transit. Wouldn't he now be in violation of IL law without a Foid card.
