thanks everyone for the replies.
I'm definately moving out west with my Parents come the end of May, and this was one of the major selling points for me. Now I just have to order myself a nice leather rig to carry my USPc :)
Again, thanks for t he help.

I guess I'll go with IN...but AZ, even better, and no snow (at sea level).

IN is very, very gun-friendly. Get a permit and you can carry nearly anywhere but government buildings, schools, and a few other places. There is a book called Indiana Handgun Law.

I'm curious...what is the law concerning transporting firearms in a vehicle in Illinois? I will be travelling through the state soon, so it would be good info. I suppose I could look it up, but if you know off the top of your head, it would save me some time.

How can I legally transport a firearm on my person or in my vehicle?
There is more than one way to legally transport a firearm. However, in order to be in compliance with all statutes, it is recommended all firearms be transported:
2. Enclosed in a case and,
3. By persons who have a valid FOID card.
What constitutes a legal "case" for transporting a firearm?
The Criminal Code refers to "a case, firearm carrying box, shipping box, or other container." However, the Wildlife Code is more specific, defining case as "a container specifically designed for the purpose of housing a gun or bow and arrow device which completely encloses such gun or bow and arrow device by being zipped, snapped, buckled, tied, or otherwise fastened with no portion of the gun or bow and arrow device exposed."
Unload it and put it in a case. Pretty simple.

Thanks for the post ElMonoDelMar. It does seem to be common sense, but with all the comments about how anti-gun a certain state is, it never hurts to ask!

Hey no problem. I didn't meant to sound condescending. Our gun laws here can get pretty complicated, but luckily transportation is one of the easy things to do.
