Where can I find the NY State laws on transportation of firearms.

I am visiting a friend near Binghamton and will conceal carry my firearm until the PA / NY State Line on I-81 and I would like to have a copy of the NY state law as to how I should travel with my firearm.

Common sense dictates that it should be unloaded and stored in a lockable case sans ammo ( 2 loaded mags ) and as far out of reach from the drivers seat as possible in an SUV ( no trunk ), but I want a copy of said laws should there be a traffic stop and an un-informed NY LEO. Thanks!!

You are basically under the fedearl law transport.

Which means that you can not spend the night in New York State with a unregistured (in New York) firearm.

I'll tell you another stupid New York State regulation. If I want to let my wife or even a buddy who is interested in getting into the handgun shooting sport, shoot my pistols, I can't because neither one of the has a pistol permit. Stupid:mad:

not to be a Pain in the-you-know-what~~~ but what happens when we have a USPSC shoot and we get people from out of state that spend the night? Do they just hope not to get caught? or is there just a bunch of people breaking the law around here???

No, they can spend the night if they're in town for a USPSC match. This is from the NY Penal code, 265.20 Exemptions

13. Possession of pistols and revolvers by a person who is a
nonresident of this state while attending or traveling to or from, an
organized competitive pistol match or league competition under auspices
of, or approved by, the National Rifle Association and in which he is a
competitor, within forty-eight hours of such event
or by a person who is
a non-resident of the state while attending or traveling to or from an
organized match sanctioned by the International Handgun Metallic
Silhouette Association and in which he is a competitor, within
forty-eight hours of such event, provided that he has not been
previously convicted of a felony or a crime which, if committed in New
York, would constitute a felony, and further provided that the pistols
or revolvers are transported unloaded in a locked opaque container
together with a copy of the match program, match schedule or match
registration card. Such documentation shall constitute prima facie
evidence of exemption, providing that such person also has in his
possession a pistol license or firearms registration card issued in
accordance with the laws of his place of residence. For purposes of this
subdivision, a person licensed in a jurisdiction which does not
authorize such license by a person who has been previously convicted of
a felony shall be presumed to have no prior conviction. The
superintendent of state police shall annually review the laws of
jurisdictions within the United States and Canada with respect to the
applicable requirements for licensing or registration of firearms and
shall publish a list of those jurisdictions which prohibit possession of
a firearm by a person previously convicted of a felony or crimes which
if committed in New York state would constitute a felony.
