Is it legal to carry a 22 rifle unloaded in a soft case behind your seat or in your toolbox on your truck? I have a single cab and sometimes it's full kids going coon hunting with me.

You can have anything in your vehicle that you can have in your home, an extension of the castle law. Carry as much of an arsenal as you'd like. And they can be loaded.

But with kiddos, I'd go unloaded. And even when I'm alone nothing is chambered while traveling, save my pistol.

Doesn't even have to be concealed.

Was always legal for a long gun, allowed anywhere not firearm prohibited. Some LEOs don't know that though.

Thanks all and yes unloaded gun for me until we get to the tree and then unloaded and chamber checked before we move from that tree.Nothing gets the young men going like a good coon hitting the ground.
