    URGENT- How to secure weapon driving through Illinois?

    Greetings,

    My friend is driving from CO to IN via I-70. His CO CCW permit is good in KS, MO and IN, but a NO GO in IL.

    Is unloading, disassembling, and putting in a locked container in the locked roof rack cargo carrier sufficient?

    Thanks,

    Hunter

    Just unload, place in case, and put in trunk. No need for a disassembly. Mag out of gun.

    That will work. As long as the firearm is in it's own case, outside the reach of the driver or passengers, and unloaded it is legal. I usually put mine in the trunk of my car when I go to the range. Best bet is to keep the ammunition in a separate case if possible.

    A few answers for you and your friend may want to print them out. The second one is from the IL state Police.

    You are allowed to transport a weapon through Illinois if your unloaded firearm is in its own locked case and the ammo is in another locked case in the farthest compartment from the driver. If you have a trunk place it there. If you have a SUV place it in the cargo area.

    When (if) I'm about to cross into the Socialist Republic of Illinois, I secure my GLOCK G19 to a big, healthy Carrier Pigeon and ask him to...fly it home.

    What you plan on doing is fine, but I pay the extra gas to drive around IL...it's personal for me.

    Actually, I do not believe the case has to be locked.

    Stop somewhere around Florissant, Missouri and take care of restroom needs, snacks, and drinks, and then drive non-stop to Terre Haute, Indiana. Obey all traffic laws while in Illinois.
