    Transporting a rifle from your car to your home...

    Is it legal to briefly carry an unloaded rifle / shotgun without a sling or case from your car to your house? Say you impulsively purchase a used rifle and it doesn't come with a case.

    Eugene, Oregon. Open carry is legal here. What I'm not sure is if one can open carry an unloaded rifle without a sling / case, i.e. holding it in one's hands.

    I would think that with discretion and being carried in a safe manner it would probably be ok. But that is not in any way very suitable legal advise. I would check out oregonfirearms.org and ask them if no one else here knows. Sorry!

    You are more concerned with neighbor perceptions or with alarming unduly others who may be present. Break the breech of the shotgun or otherwise separate the visible ammunition feed or functional parts and carry over your shoulder to appear less menacing.

    If you're that concerned, cover it with a coat or blanket.

    Your state laws should be clear in this matter, and I don't there's any problem with carrying a firearm from car to home and vice-versa whether cased or not. I mean, really--it is legal to hunt in Oregon, isn't it? To cover it with a blanket could cause it to fall into "concealed" catagory.

    In some states, you can actually carry a long gun openly. If you search the net, there's that pic of a guy on a motorcycle with an AK on his back. In Texas, we can carry a loaded rifle in our vehicle though with or without a CHL a handgun, whether loaded or not, must be concealed.

    I have no clue about Oregon law. My guess is that some areas there are more on the liberal side, so you really need to find the state law on this. My guess would be that it's fine, but don't take my word for it.

    If you're worried about it go in the house grab a case go back to the vehicle put it in it then take it in the house... I don't see how it would be any different when your loading or unloading for a day of hunting, I just don't see how it would be illegal but some states do have some strange laws

    That seems an odd question to me. How far do you park from your house?

    - A rifle would need to be transported in a case, unloaded in yer car to get it home (ccw only covers pistols in most states).

    As for a case?.... anything that encloses the firearm is the ticket 99% of the time... I have received them 'encased' in panty hose from places.

    Get home, get a case from the house, put it in the case and take it in. This ain't rocket science.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    You're speaking specifically about Oregon or Wisconsin? That's not the case in many states. Look at the Obama rally where that group showed up with ARs. In Texas, we can transport a loaded rifle without a case.

    From your car to your house................you are on your own property I assume. If that is the case you can do as you please.
