    Ohio and Handguns

    I have a deer hunting trip planned for southern Ohio to a farm my brother owns. It is a shotgun slug only area but does allow certain calibers of pistols to be used for deer hunting. I am taking a shotgun but I am a handgun hunter at heart.

    I have a headache from trying to pick through all the regulations on handgunlaw and I can't get Packing.Org to come up, my question for any of you Ohio folks is there any legal way for me to transport a handgun in Ohio for hunting? It seems there is NO way for anyone without a carry permit to have a handgun in the car for any reason.

    is there any relief in the hunting regulations that would cover me?
    Thanks!

    It needs to be locked in a case, unloaded. Or, in an area of vehicle you can't get to from passenger compartment

    SIXTO got it right. As long as it's locked and unloaded you should be fine. And as for using a handgun to hunt I believe it has to be at least a .357 with a 6" barrel. Not 100% on that, but you should be able to find that info here - http://www.dnr.state.oh.us/wildlife/ - you can also purchase your license there too.

    Thanks. yes I am up on the regulations(5" Bbl, 357 or larger,straight walled pistol cartridges) but I seem to remember on packing.Org there was a statement that when Ohio wrote their CCW laws it effectively,and possibly unintensionably,did away with anyone without a permit carrying a handgun in the car. It may have said "loaded" firearm. I have not been able to get that site to load for several days.

    If you don't have an Ohio permit, or one recognized by Ohio, I am pretty sure you have to keep the firearm unloaded and locked away in the trunk of the vehicle when in transit.

    What your thinking of pertains to the CCW law only. Nobody, CCW holder or not, and ccw in a car. It must be locked up or in plain sight.

    Thanks. I was finally able to get Packing. to work for me and yes it is all about 'loaded" guns.

    I think we will be fine with shotguns and handguns unloaded and locked in a case.
