    Default Transporting long arms as a CCW holder

    I just got my CCW, and have a question that I thought of.

    If I am transporting a long arm such as on the way to the range or to meet up with someone for a FTF sale, do I still need to keep the weapon in plain sight in my vehicle and it unloaded and no ammo near it?

    I am thinking that the above is how it would still need to be transported but want to insure that getting my license didn't somehow change how I travel with other weapons.

    Please excuse a foolish question from a newbie

    This has been covered several times before and is adressed in the SDA statutes. Not to sound like a broken record please fully read the SDA handbook and be sure you understand it.

    TITLE 21 1289.13. Transporting a loaded firearm
    TRANSPORTING A LOADED FIREARM
    Except as otherwise provided by the provisions of the Oklahoma Self-
    Defense Act or another provision of law, it shall be unlawful to transport a
    loaded pistol, rifle or shotgun in a land borne motor vehicle over a public
    highway or roadway. However, a rifle or shotgun may be transported clip or
    magazine loaded and not chamber loaded when transported in
    an exterior locked
    compartment of the vehicle or trunk of the vehicle or in the interior
    compartment of the vehicle
    notwithstanding the provisions of Section 1289.7 of
    this title when the person is in possession of a valid handgun license pursuant to
    the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act
    TITLE 21 1289.7. Firearms in vehicles
    FIREARMS IN VEHICLES
    Any person, except a convicted felon, may transport in a motor vehicle a
    rifle, shotgun or pistol, open and unloaded, at any time. For purposes of this
    section “open” means the firearm is transported in plain view, in a case designed
    for carrying firearms, which case is wholly or partially visible, in a gun rack
    mounted in the vehicle, in an exterior locked compartment or a trunk of a
    vehicle.
    Any person, except a convicted felon, may transport in a motor vehicle a
    rifle or shotgun concealed behind a seat of the vehicle or within the interior of
    the vehicle provided the rifle or shotgun is not clip, magazine or chamber
    loaded. The authority to transport a clip or magazine loaded rifle or shotgun
    shall be pursuant to Section 1289.13 of this title.

    Note that the bold printed portions of 1289.13 apply ONLY to a CCW permit holder. If you do not have a current CCW, you may not lawfully utilize the listed means of long gun transport.

    Thanks guys, I have read the booklet several times, but it was written by lawyers and I am not one. The double speak can get confusing at times, and I want to make sure I am legal at all times when transporting weapons in my vehicle.

    Thank you again for your help

    Thanks BurkLee, that is how I look at it too.

    I am an admin on a small gun forum, and have answered some questions literally dozens of times for new members.

    I remind myself that I was a newbie once too, and treat them like I would like to be treated.
