    Good resource here. Ohio, Maryland and Illinois do not honor PA permits. While in these states the gun must be locked up separate from ammo in the trunk.

    Also you won't be able to carry in Kansas. So you may want to consider other SD options.

    Here is a link to the Kansas Attrorney General's website. On page 6 are the answers to questions concerning transportation of firearms in a vehicle. You should be fine. http://www.ksag.org/files/shared/conceal.carry.FAQ.pdf

    Why do you state the gun must be locked up separate from the ammo? If the gun is in the trunk, where go you propose to transport the ammo? In the passanger compartment? In the glove box? If you are referring to FOPA, 18 USC 926A you might want to revisit what it actually requires. Ammo kept in the passanger compartment does not meet the requirements of FOPA.

    It requires the gun to be unloaded, locked in a trunk or case in the passenger compartment, and the ammo must be separated from the occupants as well, NOT from the gun.

    Sec. 926A. Interstate transportation of firearms

    Notwithstanding any other provision of any law or any rule or regulation of a State or any political subdivision thereof, any person who is not otherwise prohibited by this chapter from transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm shall be entitled to transport a firearm for any lawful purpose from any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to any other place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm if, during such transportation the firearm is unloaded, and neither the firearm nor any ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible from the passenger compartment of such transporting vehicle: Provided, That in the case of a vehicle without a compartment separate from the driver's compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console.

    Sorry, learn how to read.

    There is nothing in the law that says you have to have it locked in a separate container. It just has to be not easily accessible by you.

    Please reread below

    "during such transportation the firearm is unloaded, and neither the firearm nor any ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible from the passenger compartment of such transporting vehicle: Provided, That in the case of a vehicle without a compartment separate from the driver's compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console."

    +1 stolivar. Contrary to popular belief:

    A: The gun does not have to be in a locked case in the trunk. It has to be locked in the trunk: IE the trunk is locked.

    B: The gun and the ammo can be together. Either in the trunk, or in the same locked case in the passenger compartment.

    This is to comply with FOPA. States' restrictions in the state of origin and destination of your trip may require something more restrictive, where you will have to follow state law.
